History of BIT

The journal BIT has been published since 1961. BIT publishes original research papers in the rapidly developing field of numerical analysis. The essential areas covered by BIT are development and analysis of numerical methods as well as the design and use of algorithms for scientific computing. Topics emphasized by BIT include numerical methods in approximation, linear algebra, and ordinary and partial differential equations, but BIT also publishes papers in areas such as numerical functional analysis and numerical optimization.

2018 Carl-Erik Fröberg Prize has been awarded

The 2018 Carl-Erik Froberg Prize has been awarded to Dr Georg Muntingh, SINTEF, Oslo, for the paper

Symbols and exact regularity of symmetric pseudo-splines of any arity, BIT Numerical Mathematics 57(2017), 867-900, DOI

The prize is given in even numbered years to a young author of a distinguished paper published in BIT Numerical Mathematics.

Open Access Publishing

Many institutions in the Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, the UK, as well as the Max Planck Institute, are part of the Springer Compact deal, meaning academics from those institutions will be able to publish open access in an existing subscription journal for free. This includes BIT Numerical Mathematics. Publishing open access gives higher visibility and could lead to more citations.

Check out to see if your institution is part of the deal.

Research Data Policy

The journal encourages authors, where possible and applicable, to deposit data that support the findings of their research in a public repository. Authors and editors who do not have a preferred repository should consult Springer Nature´s list of repositories and research data policy.

Research Data Policy FAQs

General repositories - for all types of research data - such as figshare and Dryad may also be used.

Datasets that are assigned digital object identifiers (DOIs) by a data repository may be cited in the reference list. Data citations should include the minimum information recommended by DataCite: authors, title, publisher (repository name), identifier.


Springer Nature provides a research data policy support service for authors and editors, which can be contacted at This service provides advice on research data policy compliance and on finding research data repositories. It is independent of journal, book and conference proceedings editorial offices and does not advise on specific manuscripts.
