Combinatorics, Probability and Computing is a peer-reviewed scientific journal in mathematics published by Cambridge University Press . Its editor-in-chief is Béla Bollobás (DPMMS and University of Memphis).


The journal was established by Bollobás in 1992.[2] Fields Medalist Timothy Gowers calls it "a personal favourite" among combinatorics journals and writes that it "maintains a high standard".[3]


The journal covers combinatorics, probability theory, and theoretical computer science. Currently, it publishes six issues annually. As with other journals from the same publisher, it follows a hybrid green/gold open access policy, in which authors may either place copies of their papers in an institutional repository after a six-month embargo period, or pay an open access charge to make their papers free to read on the journal's website.[4]
