Guide for authors

Initial Submission

Click EditFlow to submit an article. Here are more Instructions. Contact editflow@msp.org with technical problems.

Consideration of a submission requires that it has not been previously published, is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and will not be submitted for publication elsewhere while ERA is considering it nor after it is accepted for publication by ERA.

For each submission, the handling editor is to make a recommendation based on referee’s reports and either editor in chief will make decisions.

Manuscript Preparation

AIMS strongly prefers that authors use the AMS-LaTeX macro package. All author-created TeX macros and macro packages used in the paper must be included with the submission. Only standard TeX fonts can be used: Computer Modern, AMSFonts, and LaTeX symbol fonts. PostScript graphics in EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) format can be included and should be sent as separate files. The preferred macro package for including EPS graphics files is the LaTeX graphicx package. A LaTeX document can invoke this package by using


followed by


for each EPS graphic file. Additional graphics instructions are also available.

Each paper requires an abstract not exceeding 200 words summarizing the techniques, methods and main conclusions. To facilitate key words searching and indexing, all manuscripts shall contain AMS subject classification information and key words. In order to read the changes suggested by our copy editors, you may need to use the latest Adobe Reader
