A new journal! We’ve been working on it for a long time, but we finished sorting out some details at ACT2018, and now we’re ready to tell the world!
It’s free to read, free to publish in, and it’s about building big things from smaller parts. Here’s the top of the journal’s home page right now:
Here’s the official announcement:
We are pleased to announce the launch of Compositionality, a new diamond open-access journal for research using compositional ideas, most notably of a category-theoretic origin, in any discipline. Topics may concern foundational structures, an organizing principle, or a powerful tool. Example areas include but are not limited to: computation, logic, physics, chemistry, engineering, linguistics, and cognition. To learn more about the scope and editorial policies of the journal, please visit our website at http://www.compositionality-journal.org.
Compositionality is the culmination of a long-running discussion by many members of the extended category theory community, and the editorial policies, look, and mission of the journal have yet to be finalized. We would love to get your feedback about our ideas on the forum we have established for this purpose:
Lastly, the journal is currently receiving applications to serve on the editorial board; submissions are due May 31 and will be evaluated by the members of our steering board: John Baez, Bob Coecke, Kathryn Hess, Steve Lack, and Valeria de Paiva.
We will announce a call for submissions in mid-June.
We’re looking forward to your ideas and submissions!
Brendan Fong, Nina Otter, and Joshua Tan
