**Why is Cambridge University Press launching this initiative?**

Cambridge is establishing the *Forum of Mathematics* in order to offer the community an open access journal of the highest quality as a genuine alternative to the traditional subscription model. This fulfils our commitment to support the dissemination of scholarly knowledge.

**What is the publication charge for accepted papers?**

Open Access publishing has to be funded somehow, and the prevailing model is through the levying of an article processing charge (APC) on each individual author’s institution or funding body. For *Pi* and *Sigma* we are committed to maintaining the APC at a level justified by real publishing costs, and both *Pi* and *Sigma* will have an associated APC of £750/$1100 per article.

However, we appreciate that there is at present little financial support within the community to cover APCs for open access publishing. Therefore, for the first three years Cambridge University Press will underwrite the APC for all authors (this applies to papers submitted on or before 31st December 2015), though we will encourage payment from those authors who do have appropriate funding through their institution or a funding body. After the first three years we will adopt an ongoing waiver policy for authors from eligible countries (see the ** appendix in the FAQs** for the current list), and to others who can demonstrate a lack of access to appropriate funds.
