The Mathematical Association of America continues as MathJax Supporter

The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) continues to support MathJax as a MathJax Supporter.

The MAA is the largest professional society focused on mathematics accessible at the collegiate level. As an early adopter of the web, the MAA has led the way communicating mathematics online including resources such as MathDL, born-digital ebooks and journals. The MAA’s open-source homework system WeBWorK is used at over 500 institutions worldwide.

“The MAA is very pleased to support the continuing development of MathJax,” says Ivars Peterson, MAA Director of Publications. “MathJax is a key resource for the MAA website and in other ventures in electronic publishing, all vital elements in the communication of mathematical knowledge.”

“The support of dedicated sponsors such as the MAA ensures that we can continue to provide the high-quality, universal solution that MathJax has become,” says Peter Krautzberger, MathJax Manager. “The MAA’s extensive experience and leadership in mathematical publishing and online technologies helps us improve MathJax with high-quality feedback, to the benefit of the entire community.”

The MathJax team looks forward to continuing the collaboration with the MAA and welcomes their ongoing support for the MathJax project.

AIP Publishing continues as MathJax Supporter

Mathjax is pleased to announce that AIP Publishing and the American Institute of Physics have reaffirmed their commitment to MathJax in the form of a renewed financial contribution for 2014. AIP Publishing provides the global physical science community with a comprehensive collection of highly cited peer reviewed scientific information. Accessed by researchers at nearly 4,000 institutions worldwide, AIP Publishing’s portfolio of 17 journals includes prestigious titles such as Applied Physics Letters, Journal of Applied Physics, and The Journal of Chemical Physics, and the AIP Conference Proceedings series. AIP Publishing also publishes on behalf of several of AIP’s Member Societies and other publishing partners.

As a federation of 10 physical science societies, The American Institute of Physics (AIP) pursues a mission to advance and distribute the knowledge of the physical sciences and its applications. AIP Member Societies collectively represent more than 120,000 scientists, engineers, educators and students in the global physical sciences community.

“The continued support of AIP Publishing demonstrates its commitment to being a partner to the science community”, comments Peter Krautzberger, MathJax manager. “The feedback of sponsors such as AIP is invaluable to ensure that MathJax remains the reliable, high-quality rendering solution it is today.”

“We believe MathJax provides a valuable service to researchers in the physical sciences by taking the worry out of accurately displaying and easily sharing the mathematical equations that are so important to the research they do,” said John Haynes, CEO of AIP Publishing.

We look forward to continuing the collaboration with AIP, and welcome their ongoing support for the MathJax project.
