Project Euclid's mission is to advance scholarly communication in the field of theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics. Project Euclid is designed to address the unique needs of low-cost independent and society journals. Through a collaborative partnership arrangement, these publishers join forces and participate in an online presence with advanced functionality, without sacrificing their intellectual or economic independence or commitment to low subscription prices. Full-text searching, reference linking, interoperability through the Open Archives Initiative, and long-term retention of data are all important components of the project.
The end result is a vibrant online information community for independent and society journals. This will assure that mathematics and statistics will continue to benefit from a healthy balance of commercial enterprises, scholarly societies, and independent publishers.
Project Euclid was developed and deployed by the Cornell University Library and is jointly managed by Cornell and the Duke University Press.
Start-up funding was provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
