Submission of manuscripts

Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically in PDF format, according to the instructions below, using the online submission form.

The following information is required with the submission:

  • Name of author(s) together with email address(es)

  • Complete mailing address(es)

  • Name of the corresponding author

  • 2020 Mathematics Subject Classification

  • Key words describing the subject matter of the article

  • Authors are asked to name one or possibly two editors, or, if absolutely necessary, other people close to their paper.

Papers to be considered for publication must be written in English.

Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before and that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

The JST class file for LaTeX2e

Upon acceptance of the paper, author(s) will be contacted and asked to upload all source files and macros, together with a PDF file, to a link that will be provided.

To prepare the article, you are encouraged to use the journal’s LaTeX style files (right-click the link and select ‘save link target as’ to download), which may facilitate the production procedure. The folder contains

  • a short description of the content,

  • a reference manual (for advanced users, but also in case of troubles),

  • one single file for the class,

  • a folder containing an example,

  • a limited number of optional support files (for the bibliography and the French language).

There is also, for advanced users, a file that includes the fonts used by the class. This is however optional.

Graphical items should be prepared as EPS (encapsulated PostScript) files and included by using the graphicx package.

References should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper. All references in the bibliography should be cited at least once in the text. The following examples show the preferred house style for references to a book, a paper in a journal, a paper in a proceedings volume, a preprint, and a dissertation:
