The first specialized journal in the field of mathematics, originally it covered only topology, set theory, and foundations of mathematics.^{[1]}^{[2]}^{[3]}^{[4]} It is published by the Mathematics Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The journal was conceived by Zygmunt Janiszewski as a means to foster mathematical research in Poland.^{[5]} Janiszewski posited that, to achieve its goal, the journal should not compel Polish mathematicians to submit articles written exclusively in Polish, and should be devoted only to a specialized topic in mathematics;^{[6]} Fundamenta Mathematicae thus became the first specialized journal in the field of mathematics.^{[1]}^{[2]}^{[3]}^{[4]}
Despite Janiszewski having, in a 1918 article, given the initial impetus for the creation of the journal,^{[7]} he did not live long enough to see the first issue published, in Warsaw, as he died on 3 January 1920. Wacław Sierpiński and Stefan Mazurkiewicz took over as editorsinchief. Soon after its launch, the founding editors were joined by Kazimierz Kuratowski and, later, by Karol Borsuk.
The journal is abstracted and indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded,^{[8]} Scopus,^{[9]} and Zentralblatt MATH.^{[10]} According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2016 impact factor of 0.609.^{[11]}
