Statement by Wolfgang Lueck (Muenster) about the journals ``K-Theory?? and
``Journal of K-Theory''
I have submitted an article to the DMV-Mitteilungen which is the German
equivalent
of the Notices of the AMS. The title is
``Persoenliches Protokoll zur Zeitschrift K-Theory'' which means in
English
``A personal record concerning the K-Theory journal'' It will appear
at the end of September. You can find the original and the English
translation
on my homepage under
http://www.math.uni-muenster.de/u/lueck/org/staff/aktivitaeten.html
The first two paragraphs of the English translation are:
This is a record of the recent events surrounding the journal
``K-Theory'' published by Springer and the new ``Journal of K-Theory'' to
be distributed by Cambridge University Press. One can expect that
these events will provoke a wide discussion.
In order to provide a foundation for this discussion and to clarify my
own role, I shall record the facts known to myself and Prof. Ranicki.
The evaluation of these facts is reserved for the expected discussion.
