Scripta Mathematica
Scripta Mathematica was a quarterly journal published by Yeshiva University devoted to the philosophy, history, and expository treatment of mathematics.^{[1]} It was said to be, at its time, "the only mathematical magazine in the world edited by specialists for laymen."^{[2]}
The journal was established in 1932 under the editorship of Jekuthiel Ginsburg, a professor of mathematics at Yeshiva University,^{[3]} and its first issue appeared in 1933^{[2]} at a subscription price of three dollars per year.^{[4]} It ceased publication in 1973. Notable papers published in Scripta Mathematica included work by Nobelist Percy Williams Bridgman concerning the implications for physics of set-theoretic paradoxes,^{[5]} and Hermann Weyl's obituary of Emmy Noether.^{[6]}^{[7]}
Some sources describe Scripta Mathematica as having been assigned ISSN 0036-9713^{[8]} but it ceased publication prior to the establishment of the ISSN system.
