Highly regarded academic journals in mathematics include Acta Mathematica, Annals of Mathematics, Acta Numerica, Inventiones Mathematicae and Journal of the American Mathematical Society. These are journals dedicated to mathematics in general and not to specific fields, such as statistics or calculus.
Several metrics exist to determine the relative influence of a journal, such as the impact factor, the eigenfactor or the number of citations per paper. Nevertheless, subjective factors contribute to the degree of prestige associated with a journal. For instance, mathematicians may consider a publication in a journal relevant to their sub-field, such as Annals of Statistics, more prestigious than one in a generalist journal.
