The Indian Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics (IJPAM) is published by the Indian National Science Academy (INSA). It is devoted to original research in all areas of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Statistics and other related areas. It enjoys good reputation and popularity at international level in terms of research papers and distribution worldwide. The academy has 600 Indian Subscriptions and 40 foreign subscriptions approximately. The journal is indexed in the Science Citation Index, Current Contents, Mathematical Reviews, INSPEC Science Abstracts (Part A), Zentralblatt für Mathematik and all the major abstracting services of the world. It has 12 reputed mathematicians from all over the world on its Editorial Board.
The Academy published Mathematics research articles initially in the Proceedings of INSA. But, considering the large influx of mathematical articles, the need for bringing out a separate journal in this field was felt. As a result of this the Indian Journal of Pure & Applied Mathematics (IJPAM) came into being in January 1970. The journal was quarterly in the beginning but, due to the tremendous growth in the number of articles to be published, it became a monthly publication from 1973. For various reasons, it was changed to a bimonthly from 2006. It brought out an excellent Platinum Jubilee Special Volume in 2010.
Starting 2010, the journal is being co-published with Springer (India) Pvt. Ltd., and is also available on Springerlink.com. The journal adopted the Online Manuscript Submission, Editorial processing, Review and Tracking with Editorial Manager through Springer link in April 2010.

Issue based publishing: An experiment for the Indian Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics
This concerns some publication paradigm that we are following from Volume 48, Issue 1 at the Editorial office of the Indian Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics. This is meant to make our readership aware of the constantly evolving practices in electronic publishing worldwide.
To be specific, we propose a new system in publishing the accepted papers online at http://insa.nic.in/UI/journaldetails.aspx?AID=Mg==
The new procedure we adopt is to be called Issue Based Publishing, or IBP for short. This means accepted articles are published online as soon as the corrected proofs are received from the author, complete with all the bibliographic data. Issue based publishing is a departure from the current practice which has eliminated the notion of “several issues” within a fixed volume. Thus typically most journals bring out only one volume per year making the citation to a particular article within that volume somewhat cumbersome. We are going to assign an accepted article to a particular issue as soon as it is available in its final form complete with the information on the particular issue to which it belongs, the DOI number and the page numbers etc. This will greatly help in accessing an article as soon as it is ready, even if an entire issue remains to be completed. Also accessibility of an article and possibility of citing it with full DOI information will be achieved in the shortest possible time.
