Submission of manuscripts
Authors may submit their papers electronically in PDF format, according to the instructions below, using the online submission form.
The journal publishes original contributions and occasional survey articles. Intending authors of such surveys should first consult an Editorial Board member. Authors may not submit papers that are under consideration for publication elsewhere.
Each article should have an introduction that is accessible to a wide readership taking into account the interdisciplinary nature of the journal and should include a clear conclusion. The abstract should be a short, clear synopsis of the paper. It should be written as one paragraph, mathematical formulas should be avoided, and it should not contain displayed mathematical equations or tabular material.
The IFB style for LaTeX
We strongly encourage authors to make available LaTeX files for typesetting purposes. Upon final acceptance of papers, authors will be asked to submit all source files and macros together with a PDF file.
Once an article has been accepted for publication, authors are kindly asked to
download the file IFB.zip;
follow the instructions included in the zip file;
submit their article in well-structured LaTeX using the template and the style file contained in the zip file.
Authors will receive a set of galley proofs of their article for final corrections, and they will be entitled to an electronic copy of the published article.
IFB operates a single-blind peer-review process.
IFB is a Subscribe to Open (S2O) journal, which means that articles may be published open access. There are no author fees or article processing charges associated with this mode of open access. Open access articles are published under the CC-BY 4.0 license. Authors may review our Terms of Digital Access for further information regarding licenses and repository deposits.
