Inverse Problems and Imaging (IPI)

To expedite the refereeing process, it is strongly recommended that authors send a PDF file of the paper electronically. Manuscripts should be in English and submitted online or to either the Managing Editor of inverse problems (Mikko Salo) or of imaging (Hao-Min Zhou). A cover letter (in pdf) is also required. For online submission instructions, see Submit an article

Submission of a manuscript is a statement that the work has not been previously published, has not been copyrighted, is not being submitted for publication elsewhere, and that its submission has been approved by all of the authors and by the institution where the work was carried out. The authors agree that the copyright in the article shall be assigned exclusively to the publisher upon acceptance of the article. The manuscript will not be returned.

For refereeing purposes, manuscripts can be submitted as pdf files. We recommend the manuscripts be prepared using TeX or LaTeX. Please ensure that the font size is sufficiently large, the margins are wide enough, and the pages are numbered. Page 1 should contain the title, author(s) names and complete affiliations, and the name and mailing address of the corresponding author. Each paper requires an abstract not exceeding 200 words summarizing the techniques, methods, and main conclusions.

After a paper is accepted, author(s) are asked to prepare their files in TeX or LaTeX using IPI templates and provide high resolution figures (if any) to ensure speedy quality production. The IPI templates consist of the sample LaTeX fileand the IPI class file, both of which can be easily down loaded at the above links. Please also see the resulting sample pdf file.

Using the IPI template files, the final files should be prepared so that page 1 contains the title, author(s) names and complete affiliations, and the abstract. Place any footnotes to the title at the bottom of Page 1. AMS subject classifications must accompany all articles, placed at the bottom of Page 1 before any other footnotes. Electronic mail addresses, if available, can be placed at the very end of the paper. Each paper requires a separate page containing a proposed running head (abbreviated form of the title) of no more than 40 characters. Equations should be centered with the number placed in parentheses at the right margin. Figures must be drafted in high resolution and high contrast on separate pieces of white paper in a form suitable for photographic reproduction and reduction. When submitting the final files of an accepted paper, please also attach the name and mailing address of the author to whom proofs should be sent.

The authors of all accepted papers should retrieve a Consent to Publish and Copyright Agreement Form, fill it out, sign it, and email the pdf of a scanned copy to, or fax the signed form to (417) 351-3204, or send the hard copy to American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, P.O. Box 2604, Springfield, MO 65801-2604, USA.

For journal abbreviations used in bibliographies, consult the list of serials in the latest Mathematical Reviews annual index.

Manuscripts typeset using AmSTeX (amsppt) or AmS-LaTeX (amsart) can move much more quickly through the production process, hence these two TeX forms are strongly recommended to authors for preparing their manuscripts.

Contributions to this journal are published free of charge.
Please also note the IPI does not offer reprints.

At AIMS, we do everything we can to have your article reach as many interested readers as possible, and we encourage authors to do the same. Please consider sharing a link to your article on relevant social media such as ResearchGate and LinkedIn.
