Instructions for authors

Communications in Mathematics is an open-access free journal that is committed to publishing high-quality, peer-reviewed articles in pure and applied mathematics, statistics, computer science, and related topics. We believe in the importance of open access and require that all submissions be made available in an open repository prior to submission. Then, a single-blind review process, which involves the evaluation of articles by expert reviewers in the field, ensures that only the most rigorous and impactful research is published in our journal. In addition to our commitment to quality, we are dedicated to making a swift revision and an efficient publishing process, to ensure that your research is made available in a timely manner.

How to submit your article

If you want to submit your article to Communications in Mathematics, the first step is to make sure that your article is original, well-written and contains relevant results. The next step is to create an account on the Episciences platform.

Once your account has been created, you can login to your Episciences account. After logging in, you will be able to click on a tab named "Submit an article". This tab will have a form which will look like the following:

Notice that, one of the required information in this form is "document identifier". Hence, the next step is to upload your article to the open reposiitory ArXiv.

Once your article is uploaded, you will obtain a document identifier number provided by ArXiv. Then, you will be ready to finish the submission of your article. If you want to suggest an editor to handle your submission, you can do so in the comment section.

General instructions

  • Check the spelling and grammar of your manuscript.
  • Avoid starting a new sentence with a mathematical formula and try to separate adjacent formulas with words.
  • Avoid inline formulas longer than half of a line. You can use math displays instead.
  • Consider the use the enumerate and itemize environments for lists.
  • Consider the use of \dots, \ldots, \dotsc, \cdot, etc, instead of "..." or ".".
  • Consider the use of \cite, \ref and \eqref for citations and cross-references.
  • Try to avoid inserting horizontal or vertical spacing, such as \hskip, \vskip and \bigskip.
  • Try to avoid inserting line or page brakes, such as \\, \newpage and \clearpage.
  • Consider the excelent information contained in P. Halmo's article How to write mathematics.
