Author Guidelines

Authors may submit manuscripts for publication to any member of the editorial committee. Manuscripts must be submitted in pdf-format by attached mail; there is no online submission. Authors should keep a copy of their manuscripts since the publisher cannot accept responsibility for lost copies.

Mathematica Scandinavica publishes high quality research papers in mathematics of moderate length.  New submissions significantly longer than 20 journal pages will not be considered.  There are no author fees for this journal.

Authors are advised to study the printing style of the journal before making the final version of the manuscript. Style files may be downloaded from the style file page.

If the paper is a revised version of a manuscript previously sent to the journal, this should be clearly stated in the submission email. Authors should not send multiple papers to the journal within a short period of time, unless by prior agreement.

A not too condensed style is recommended.  The pages should be numbered consecutively (not by section or paragraph).

The article should include a short descriptive title.  Mathematical symbols should be avoided in the title whenever possible.  For all authors, please provide contact information, including postal and email addresses, in the manuscript.

Footnotes should be avoided.

The article must contain a short abstract. Here formulas should be used only when necessary and should be kept to a minimum. Please note that the abstract should be able to be read independently of the main text.  In particular, in the abstract citations to other articles should be avoided if possible; necessary citations should contain full details.

References should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper, numbered consecutively without square brackets, whereas references in the text should be indicated by numbers in square brackets.  The list of references should only contain those articles cited in the paper.

The general format for references can be found in recent issues of Mathematica Scandinavica. Authors should consult Mathematical Reviews/MathSciNet for standard abbreviations of journal names.

Manuscripts received are assumed to be final. If excessive changes are requested after an article has been typeset, the author will be charged with the cost of the alterations other than the printer’s errors.

Authors of papers accepted for publication will be asked to supply an electronic version of the paper together with a paper manuscript. The file should be in LaTeX, and it should be sent by attached mail.  They will also be asked to transfer copyright to Mathematica Scandinavica.

Before publication, authors will be sent galley proofs by email for approval. Corrections should be returned promptly. Please keep us informed of changes in your contact information to avoid delays in this process.

Each author receives a pdf-file for personal use with the final typeset version of the paper.
