The journal was established in 2018, when the editorial board of the Springer Science+Business Media Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics resigned to protest the publisher's high prices and limited accessibility.[1][2] The board criticized Springer for "double-dipping", that is, charging large subscription fees to libraries in addition to high fees for authors who wished to make their publications open access.[3]

Abstracting and indexing

The journal is abstracted and indexed in Mathematical Reviews and Zentralblatt Math.[4]
