Submission of a manuscript acknowledges that the manuscript is original 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 journal.
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.
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 of the
abstract must be included, one in the language of the article and one in English. Also required are keywords and a
Mathematics Subject Classification code for the article, and, for each author, postal address, affiliation (if appropriate), and email address. A homepage URL is optional.
Submissions in any language will be considered; but keep in mind that
languages other than English may exclude some potential readers.
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.
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.
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
