For three years, the seminar published proceedings in the format of a journal, called Seminar Sophus Lie, two issues per year. This series was converted into an international journal called Journal of Lie Theory in 1994. This journal is electronically available via its homepage at the European Mathematical Information System.
Journal of Lie Theory is a journal for speedy publication of information in the following areas: Lie algebras, Lie groups, algebraic groups, and related types of topological groups such as locally compact and compact groups. Applications to representation theory, differential geometry, geometric control theory, theoretical physics, quantum groups are considered as well. The principal subject matter areas according to the Mathematics Subject Classification are 14Lxx, 17Bxx, 22Bxx, 22Cxx, 22Dxx, 22Exx, 53Cxx, 81Rxx.
Journal of Lie Theory primarily publishes research articles. Survey articles on a topical area inside the scope of the journal are considered.
