Journal of Dynamics and Games (JDG)
 

Guide for Authors

Journal of Dynamics and Games (JDG) publishes peer-reviewed papers and invited expository papers of the highest quality at the interface of Dynamical Systems (discrete, continuous, deterministic, or stochastic) and Game Theory. To be publishable in the journal, a paper must either be an invited expository paper or must be original, novel, or significant to work already published. Given the broad scope of the journal, authors are encouraged to include introductory material to make the papers understandable and accessible to a wide readership.

Manuscripts should be written in decent English. To submit, please send the PDF of the article directly to the member of the Editorial Board whose area, in the opinion of the author, is most closely related to the topic of the paper.

Submission of a manuscript is a representation 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. Furthermore, it indicates that any person cited as a source of personal communications has approved such citation, and that the authors have agreed that the copyright in the article shall be assigned to the Publisher upon acceptance of the article.

Manuscript style Number each page. Page 1 should contain the title, authors' names and complete affiliations. Place any footnotes to the title at the bottom of Page 1. Each paper requires an abstract not exceeding 200 words. AMS subject classifications and some key words must accompany all articles and must be placed at the bottom of Page 1. E-mail addresses of all authors should be placed at the end of the paper. Each paper requires a running head (abbreviated form of the title) of no more than 40 characters. Titles should be concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems, so they should not contain abbreviations and formulae. Abstracts should be concise and factual, which state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors. You should take particular care to ensure that the information is correct so that links to referenced articles can be made successfully. Material that is really a footnote to the text should not be included in the reference list, which should contain only references to bibliographic data. Avoid any references that are not fully cited in the paper.

Equations should be centered with the number placed in parentheses at the right margin.

Figures must be of high resolution and high contrast.

References should be listed alphabetically, typed, and punctuated according to the following examples:
1. S. N. Chow and J. K. Hale, "Methods of Bifurcation Theory," Springer-Verlag, New York, 1982.
2. J. Serrin, Gradient estimates for solutions of nonlinear elliptic and parabolic equations, in "Contributions to Nonlinear Functional Analysis" (ed. E.H. Zarantonello), Academic Press (1971).
3. S. Smale, Stable manifolds for differential equations and diffeomorphisms, Ann. Scuola Norm. Sup. Pisa Cl. Sci., 18 (1963), 97--116.
When citing "Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems" and "Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems Series B," the abbreviated form of "Discrete Contin. Dyn. Syst." and "Discrete Contin. Dyn. Syst. Ser. B," respectively, may be used instead. For journal abbreviations used in bibliographies, consult the list of serials in the latest Mathematical Reviews annual index.

Manuscripts Authors are strongly encouraged to use AmS-LaTeX (amsart) to prepare manuscripts so they can move much more quickly through the production process.

Proofs We will contact you by e-mail when the PDF proof of your article is ready. When your manuscript is received by AIMS it is considered to be in its final form. Proofs are not to be regarded as 'drafts'.

Reprints The journal does not offer reprints.
