Electronic Research Announcements

Guide for authors

Initial Submission

Authors should send a PDF file using the web submission form or may submit the paper directly to any editor; in the latter case the web submission form should be filled out and submitted as well. Consideration of a submission requires that it has not been previouslypublished, is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and willnot be submitted for publication elsewhere while ERA-MS is considering itnor after it is accepted for publication by ERA-MS.

All papers are reviewed, and positive recommendations by the editor are put before the editorial board for final approval. Usually a decision will be communicated to the author within 2 months of submission, and the editorial board is committed to rendering a decision within 6 months in all cases.

Manuscript Preparation

AIMS strongly prefers that authors use the AMS-LaTeX macro package. All author-created TeX macros and macro packages used in the paper must be included with the submission. Only standard TeX fonts can be used: Computer Modern, AMSFonts, and LaTeX symbol fonts. PostScript graphics in EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) format can be included and should be sent as separate files. The preferred macro package for including EPS graphics files is the LaTeX graphicx package. A LaTeX document can invoke this package by using


followed by


for each EPS graphic file. Additional graphics instructions are also available.

Each paper requires an abstract not exceeding 200 words summarizing the techniques, methods and main conclusions. To facilitate key words searching and indexing, all manuscripts shall contain AMS subject classification information and key words. In order to read the changes suggested by our copy editors, you may need to use the latest Adobe Reader
