Authors may submit manuscripts in PDF
format on-line at the
Student and Faculty Involvement
All manuscripts should include a minimum of one-third student authorship.
Submissions should include substantial faculty input; faculty co-authorship is required.
The submission should in all cases come from a faculty member.
Submission of a manuscript acknowledges that the manuscript is original and
and is not, in whole or in part, published or under consideration for
publication elsewhere. It is understood also that the manuscript will not be
submitted elsewhere while under consideration for publication in this
Articles in Involve are usually in English, but
articles written in other languages are welcome.
A brief abstract of about 150
words or less must be included. It should be self-contained and not make any
reference to the bibliography. If the article is not in English, two versions
abstract must be included, one in the language of the article and one in
English. Also required are keywords and
subject classifications for the article,
and, for each author, postal address, affiliation (if appropriate), and email
address if available. A home-page URL is optional.
Submission requires uploading the paper in PDF. If your submission is
accepted you will then need to supply source files, which may be in
any variety of TeX or LaTeX, or in other software such as Word.
Bibliographical references should be
complete, including article titles and page ranges.
All references in the bibliography should be cited in the text. The use of BibTeX is
preferred but not required. Tags will be converted to the house format,
however for submission you may use the format of your choice.
Links will be provided to all literature with known web locations and authors
are encouraged to provide their own links in addition to those supplied in the
Figures must be of publication quality.
After acceptance, you will need to submit the original source files in vector
graphics format for all
diagrams in your manuscript: vector EPS or vector PDF
files are the most useful.
Most drawing and graphing packages — Mathematica, Adobe Illustrator,
Corel Draw, MATLAB, etc. — allow the user to save files in one of
these formats. Make sure that what you are saving is vector graphics
and not a bitmap. If you need help, please write to
with as many details as you can about how your graphics were generated.
Bundle your figure files into a single archive (using zip, tar, rar or
other format of your choice) and upload on the link you been provided at
Each figure should be captioned and numbered so that it can float. Small figures
occupying no more than three lines of vertical space can be kept in the text
(“the curve looks like this:”). It is acceptable to submit a
manuscript with all figures at the end, if their placement is specified in the
text by means of comments such as “Place Figure 1 here”. The same
considerations apply to tables.
Forced line breaks or page breaks
should not be inserted in the document. There is no point in your trying to
optimize line and page breaks in the original manuscript. The manuscript will
be reformatted to use the journal's preferred fonts and layout.
Page proofs will be made available to
authors (or to the designated corresponding author) at a Web site in PDF format.
Failure to acknowledge the receipt of proofs or to return corrections within
the requested deadline may cause publication to be postponed.
