Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Of course, it's very easy to find journals which publish original mathematical work, and there are a number of book series that publish expository monographs. But if you have a work of original research which has reached monograph length, I don't know of many options. The only ones I know which are reasonably prestigious are Memoirs of the AMS and Asterisque. Are there other good options for publishing such work I'm not thinking of?

Community Wiki? – Todd Trimble May 23 '14 at 16:08
Uh, right. I thought of that while writing the question, but somehow the box hadn't shown up yet. – Ben Webster May 23 '14 at 16:16
Doesn't proceedings of steklov institute allow long papers? You could also write a book. – Benjamin Steinberg May 23 '14 at 16:24
I hoped for a moment that Todd was suggesting that community wiki MathOverflow answers are an appropriate way of disseminating your mathematics. – James Cranch May 23 '14 at 19:49

The European Math Society publishes EMS Monographs in Mathematics. There's also the Springer Lecture Notes in Mathematics, not to mention The Annals of Math Studies. These all fit in the rubric of `reasonably prestigious'. I think International Press publishes research monographs (at least they used to!)

Progress in Mathematics (web) sometimes publishes research monographs.
