Introduction to CAM Ser. A
Chinese Annals of Mathematics (CAM), founded in 1980 and sponsored by Fudan University under the supervision of the Ministry of Education of China, is a comprehensive international mathematical journal carrying original papers of high quality on pure and applied mathematics. CAM is published in two series: Series A in Chinese and Series B in English. Both series come out bimonthly. Papers published in Series A are not included in Series B and vice versa. From 1988 on, part of the papers published in Series A are translated into English and published in chinese Journal of Contemporary Mathematics (abbr. Ser.

The Editorial Board consists of 24 outstanding young or middle-aged mathematicians at home and abroad (Editors), and 5 renowned mathematicians are invited as its Honorary Editors.
CAM Ser. A is abstracted/indexed in 13 domestic and foreign periodicals or data bases, such as Current Mathematical Publications (CMP), Mathematical Review (MR), Zentralblatt MATH (ZM), Abstract Journals (AJ-PЖ), Chinese Science Citation Index (CSCI), Chinese Mathematical Abstracts (CMA) and Wanfang Data-Periodicals (ChinaInfo).
CAM Ser. A was successively elected an excellent scientific and technological journal of China, an excellent scientific and technological journal of the Ministry of Education of China or an excellent scientific and technological journal of Shanghai 12 times. And it is one of the Chinese core journals on natural sciences and one of the authoritative mathematical journals in China.
