History

After RMS was founded in 1985, the starting of its journal - Journal of the Ramanujan Mathematical Society (JRMS) - followed as a sequitur in 1986. As one who mooted the idea of starting the journal, the mantle of Editor-in-Chief fell naturally upon Professor K.S. Padmanabhan. He put it on a solid foundation during the period 1986-1991 of his chief editorship so that it could shape into a truly international journal. 

Professor V. Kannan succeeded him in 1992 and continued in this capacity till 1996. 

Professor Kumar Murty took over the Chief Editorship in 1997. Embedded as he is in the pride of Indian nationalism, Professor Kumar Murty has chosen a team of relatively young but accomplished mathematicians, all Indian, as his associate editors for the JRMS . Under his stewardship, JRMS has witnessed a meteoric rise. 

True to the wishes of the founders of RMS, the journal maintains both quality and regularity, the quality is being taken care of by the Editor-in-Chief and his associates and regularity, by the untiring efforts of the Managing Editor Professor Sampathkumar.
