The Indian Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics (IJPAM) is published by the Indian National Science Academy (INSA) quarterly. It is intended to publish original research in Pure and Applied Mathematics, Statistics and all other areas of Mathematical Sciences. The journal is indexed in the Science Citation Index, Current Contents, Mathematical Reviews, INSPEC Science Abstracts (Part A), Zentralblatt fur Mathematik. The Editorial Board of the journal, appointed by the Council of the Academy, consists of distinguished mathematicians. The name of the mathematicians currently on the Editorial Board is given below.
In the beginning, Proceedings of INSA use to publish original research in all areas of basic sciences. Considering the large influx of articles in mathematics, it was decided to publish these exclusively in a separate journal and the IJPAM was created in the year 1970 as a quarterly journal. It was then published monthly from the year 1973, it was a bimonthly publication between 2006 and 2015 and starting from 2016, it has been again a quarterly publication. On the occasion of the Platinum Jubilee of the Academy, in the year 2010, a Special Volume was published.
Starting from the year 2010, the journal is being co-published and distributed in the international market by Springer Nature. The Academy has about 450 domestic subscriptions for the journal at present. In April 2010, the journal adopted the online manuscript submission, editorial processing, review and tracking with the Editorial Manager.
As soon as a paper is accepted, and author proofs are received, they are made available simultaneously at Online First and from a dedicated website of the journal at INSA. These articles are then sold by Springer Nature to anyone who might wish to obtain full access, however, they are freely available from the web-site of INSA. Starting from volume 48 of the journal, the articles appear online complete with all the bibliographic data.

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.

2. Instructions for the Contributors:
The Indian Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics (IJPAM) is devoted to original research in all fields of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Statistics and other related areas. It is published bimonthly by the Indian National Science Academy (INSA) and is also available on its website. Starting 2010, the Journal is being co-published with Springer, and is also available on Springerlink.com.
The authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts online through http://www.editorialmanager.com/ijpa/
Manuscripts (in full or, any substantial part thereof) submitted to IJPAM should not have been submitted for publication elsewhere.
The author must choose a member of the editorial board specialising in an area close to the topic of the paper.
Instructions for preparation of manuscripts is available at www.springer.com/authors. The initial page should contain the title followed by the name(s) of the author(s), full mailing address(es) and email address (es).
The author should provide a short abstract, not exceeding 250 words, summarizing the highlights of the principal findings covered in the paper and the scope of the research. Five or six keywords and phrases should be provided along with the latest American Mathematical Society subject classification available at http://www.ams.org/mathscinet/msc2010.html.
References should be cited in the text by the Arabic numerals in square brackets. List of references should be arranged in the alphabetical order of the author’s last name. Each reference should include the author’s name, title, the abbreviated name of the journal, volume number, (year), page numbers, as in the sample citation given below:
