eISSN = The**"Annals of Mathematics**" (ISSN 0003-486X), abbreviated as**"Ann. of Math.**" and often just called**"Annals**", is a bimonthlymathematics research journal published byPrinceton University and theInstitute for Advanced Study . It ranks amongst the most prestigious mathematics journals in the world by criteria such as citation intensity.The journal began as

**"The Analyst**" in 1874, founded and edited byJoel E. Hendricks . It was "intended to afford a medium for the presentation and analysis of any and all questions of interest or importance in pure and applied Mathematics, embracing especially all new and interesting discoveries in theoretical and practical astronomy, mechanical philosophy, and engineering". [*cite journal|last=Hendricks|first=Joel E.|year=1874|title=Introductory remarks|journal=The Analyst|volume=1|issue=1|pages=1–2|quotes=no*] It was published inDes Moines, Iowa , and was the earliest American mathematics journal to be published continuously for more than a year or two.

[*cite journal | author = Raymond Garver | title = The Analyst, 1874-1883 | journal =*]Scripta Mathematica | volume = 1 | issue = 1 | year = 1932 | pages = 247–51The new incarnation of the journal was edited by

Ormond Stone of theUniversity of Virginia . It moved to Harvard in 1899 before reaching its current home in Princeton in 1911.An important period for the journal was 1928-1958 with

Solomon Lefschetz as editor. During this time, "Annals" became an increasingly well-known and respected journal. The rise of "Annals", in turn, stimulated American mathematics.Princeton University continued to publish the "Annals" on its own until 1933, when the

Institute for Advanced Study took joint editorial control. Since 1998 it has been available in an electronic edition, alongside its regular print edition. The electronic edition is available without charge, as anopen access journal .The current editors of the "Annals of Mathematics" are [
