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. This has resulted in the enhanced visibility of the journal. There is a steady increase in the subscription reflecting the growing popularity and utility of the journal. The ranking of the journal has also gone up.
The journal adopted the Online Manuscript Submission, Editorial processing, Review and Tracking with Editorial Manager through Springerlink in April 2010. This has made the processing of the papers fast.
