I am excited to inform all previous and future contributors, as well as readers, that the Journal of Inequalities and Applications has been transferred to the international publisher Springer, Science + Business Media, to continue publication as part of the new SpringerOpen range of fully open access journals.

I am honored to continue to act as Editor-in-Chief, serving alongside editorial board members from various well-renowned institutions. In joining SpringerOpen, we are confident that the journal will have a much stronger impact in the near future. Based on the many high quality articles published since 1997, it is our belief that our impact factor will be further strengthened.

The Journal of Inequalities and Applications is a peer-reviewed journal. The aim of this journal is to provide a multi-disciplinary forum of discussion in mathematics and its applications in which the essentiality of inequalities is highlighted. The journal accepts high quality papers containing original research results and survey articles of exceptional merit. Subject matters should be strongly related to inequalities, such as, but not restricted to, the following: Inequalities in Analysis, Inequalities in Approximation theory, Inequalities in Combinatorics, Inequalities in Economics, Inequalities in Geometry, Inequalities in Mechanics, Inequalities in Optimization, Inequalities in Stochastic Analysis and Applications.

By continuing to publish as an open access journal, all articles published in the Journal of Inequalities and Applications will be freely available for anyone to view as before. The existing coverage in the indexing and abstracting services will also continue uninterrupted.

All manuscripts submitted to Journal of Inequalities and Applications will be subjected to a quick and impartial closed peer-review process. The Editor-in-Chief/Associate Editors will initially examine the manuscripts to check the suitability of papers. Based on reviews, and the recommendations from the assigned editors, the Editor-in-Chief will inform authors regarding acceptance of their manuscripts. Upon acceptance, the articles will appear online immediately.

I am delighted to be taking the Journal of Inequalities and Applications forward with SpringerOpen and look forward to disseminating high quality research developments to the academic community
