About Eureka

Eureka is the globally-distributed journal of the Archimedeans.

Eureka was first published in 1939 and has continued to do so almost annually, with the 63rd scheduled to be published in October. It is a mix of articles and problems, often with mathematical humour for good measure. Most of the articles are written by students, but we are privileged to have had as distinguished luminaries as Paul Dirac, Paul Erdös, John Conway, Béla Bollobás, Ian Stewart and Douglas Hofstadter, to name but a few.

Production of Eureka

The production of the journal is done by the Publications Subcommittee. The Business Manager is tasked with overlooking the production and dealing with the finances, printing and distribution of the journal. The Eureka Editors take on the task of creating the journal. And of course, we have all the writers and contributors.

If you would like to be a part of the Publications team (now, or in the future), please let us know so we can maintain the regular production of this highly regarded journal.

If you would like to write for Eureka, details can be found in the Write for Eureka section of the website.
