Guide for Authors

Aims and Scope
Communications in Mathematics publishes research and survey papers in all areas of pure and applied mathematics. To be acceptable for publication, the paper must be significant, original and correct. High quality review papers of interest to a wide range of scientists in mathematics and its applications are equally welcome.

Copyright
The copyright-holder for published papers is University of Ostrava who is the Publisher of the journal. Submission of a manuscript implies that the work has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of an academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere, without the written consent of the Publisher. Permission of the Publisher is required for all other derivative works, including compilations and translations.

Preparation of Manuscripts
Manuscripts submitted for publication must be written in English, and produced in (La)TeX. Simple example – Author_Name.tex – would be useful. The first page should contain the title, authors' names and addresses, full contact details of the corresponding author, the abstract, keywords, and 2010 MS classification numbers (http://www.ams.org/mathscinet/msc/msc2010.html).
Footnotes should be avoided if possible, but if they are included they should be brief, and numbered consecutively.
References must be as complete as possible and put in alphabetical order.

Submission
Submission to this journal proceeds totally on-line, and the author is guided stepwise through the procedure. To complete the submission successfully, the author is required to choose one of the Editors whose areas fit as closely as possible with the topic of the manuscript to handle the manuscript.

Authors can submit their manuscripts to only one Editor. The Editor's decision is final. The same manuscript, or a slight variation thereof, cannot be submitted to Communications in Mathematics again. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in authors being forbidden to submit manuscripts to Communications in Mathematics for a long period of time.

All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision, requests for revision, and proofs takes place by e-mail.
