I recently resigned from the editorial board of the Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra. This has nothing to do with Timothy Gowers’ boycott of Elsevier (which, incidentally, I view as extremely silly). I am already the managing editor of IJAC and an editor in two other journals. Also it looks like JPAA does not need group theory component. I have not personally met any of the members of the editorial board except for one of the chief editors, which probably means that my understanding of “algebra” does not agree with the journal’s aims and scope.
