This journal is co-sponsored by Dalian University of Technology and China Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. At present, Professors Lei Guo and Renhong Wang are the co-editors of the journal.

JMRA is a home for original research papers of high quality in all areas of mathematics with applications. The target audience comprises: pure and applied mathematicians, graduate students in broad fields of sciences and technology, and scientists and engineers interested in mathematics. The journal is dedicated to publishing first-rate research papers in English and making the research findings available to a wide scientific community, as it has for many years. More than 3700 papers had been published in this journal before its name changes, including those contributed by some famous mathematicians such as K. L. Chung, P. L. Butzer, and so on. A paper published in this journal [3(1):185,1983] by P. L. Butzer has been cited more than fifty times in SCI journal papers. The contributors to this journal come from more than 10 countries, including China, USA, UK, Japan, India and Russian.  

This journal is indexed/reviewed in many international databases such as American “Mathematical Reviews” (MR), “American Current Mathematical Publications” (CMP), Germany “Zentralblatt fÜr Mathematik und ihre Grenzgebiete”, and Russian “Реферативньюй Журнал” (Journal Abstracts (AJ)) . Moreover this journal is indexed by almost all the periodical databases in China, including Chinese Journal Full-text Database (CJFD), China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), Wanfang Data Digital Periodicals, Chinese Core Periodicals and so on. In 2000, this journal ranked the second in the Chinese Core Journals Ranking. This journal has already been included as one of the source journals generally evaluated as the core of Chinese core journals by Chinese Science Citation Database (CSCD) since 1993 when the database was established.
