Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Format of manuscript

In case the paper is accepted for publication, the Journal strongly encourages authors to make available LaTeX files for typesetting purposes. Authors are advised to create their LaTex files in 'article' format with text width set to 125 mm and the page depth to 185 mm (without headers, 195 mm including headers).

The title page should include the name, affiliation and address (together with email address) of each author and a short abstract. The abstract should be written as one paragraph, mathematical formulas should be avoided, and it should not contain displayed mathematical equations or tabular material.

Footnotes should be avoided.

To avoid distortion from rescaling, figures must not be wider than 125 mm. They should be sent as EPS file (encapsulated postscript).

All figures, tables, etc. should be numbered, with the insertion place clearly indicated.

References should be listed at the end of the manuscript in the form: author(s), title of paper, journal title (abbreviated in accordance with Mathematical Reviews), volume number, year of publication in parentheses, and page numbers. For books, indicate also the publisher. The reference list should be arranged in alphabetical order. Items not cited in the text should not appear in the list.

Copyright and Offprints

It is a condition of publication in the Journal that authors assign copyright to the Swiss Mathematical Society. This ensures that requests from third parties to reproduce articles are handled efficiently and consistently and will also allow the article to be as widely disseminated as possible. In assigning copyright, authors may use their own material in other, non-commercial publications provided that the Journal is properly acknowledged as the original place of publication.

Authors of papers published in the Journal will be entitled to 30 free offprints, to be shared between authors of joint papers. Extra copies of offprints may be purchased if ordered together with the permission to print.
