Guide for authors
(1) Each citation and reference in your manuscript must play an essential role. (2) An explanation for each reference must be clearly integrated into the narrative of your manuscript. (3) Do not cite any reference if your paper is not affected without it.
Manuscripts should be in English and must meet common standards of usage and grammar.
Submission of a manuscript means the author(s) assure 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; and furthermore, 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 exclusively to the publisher upon acceptance of the article. The manuscript will not be returned. Articles should be prepared using some flavour of LaTeX. For submission purposes authors may use any format for the article that they wish provided the page size is 8.5 X 11 inches (21.5 X 28 cm). Please see Tex file preparation for detaied information.
After a paper is accepted:
Author(s) should prepare the final Tex file following the instructions by click Tex file preparation.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Graphics should be in eps format and of high resolution. References should be listed alphabetically, typed and punctuated according to the following examples:
1. C. E. Shannon, A mathematical theory of communication, Bell Systems Tech. J., 27 (1948), 379--423.
2. N. Bourbaki, "Elements of Mathematics," Ch. Commutative Algebra, Addison Wesley, Reading, MA, 1972.
3. O. Kounchev, Stable range for noetherian rings, J. Algebra, 20 (1983), 97--116.
For journal abbreviations used in bibliographies, consult the list of serials in the latest Mathematical Reviews annual index.
Contributions to this journal are published free of charge.
Please also note that MFC 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.
