Creative Mathematics and Informatics (Creat. Math. Inform.) publishes high quality original research papers and survey articles in all areas of pure and applied mathematics and computer science as well as interdisciplinary papers that involve mathematics and/or computer science. It will also occasionally publish proceedings of international conferences (co-)organized by Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, North University of Baia Mare. In this context, high quality papers dealing with history and didactics of mathematics and computer science are also encouraged.
A careful refereeing process involving high ranked experts in the topic of the submitted manuscripts is conducted since the publication of the first volume of Creat. Math. Inform.
The reviewers are selected amongst the most active experts in the respective fields of research. Selection is done by using well known international mathematical databases (Mathematical Reviews; Zentralblatt MATH; SCOPUS, Web of Science etc.).
Any article is accepted/rejected on the recommendations of at least two reviewers. As a direct consequence of the rigorous reviewing process, the rejection rate for Creat. Math. Inform. has increased from 30 % (average 2003-2010) to 37.5 % (average 2011-2012). Complete information on the receiving date of manuscript; revised version reception and acceptance is specified in a footnote on the first page of the published articles, where MSC 2010 and Key words are also included.
