ggd - Instructions for authors


GGD summary  | Online article submission

Submission of manuscripts

Authors must submit their papers electronically in PDF format, according to the instructions below, using the online submission form.

Authors are strongly encouraged to select, in the online submission tool, a member of the Editorial Board who is an expert in the respective field. Only in exceptional cases should papers be sent to the Editor-in-Chief.

Authors may not submit papers that are under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Format of manuscript

The Journal strongly encourages authors to make available LaTex files for typesetting purposes. Upon final acceptance of your paper you will be asked to upload all source files and macros, together with postscript or pdf files, to a link to be provided. Authors are advised to create their LaTex files in 'article' format with \textwidth=125 mm and \textheight=195 mm.

The title page should include the name, affiliation and address (together with e-mail address) of each author and a short abstract. 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification numbers and key words should also be added. The author to whom proofs should be sent should be marked as the corresponding author.

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), suitable for direct reproduction without major reduction.

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

References should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper. All references in the bibliography should be cited at least once in the text. The following examples show the preferred house style for references to a book, a paper in a journal, a paper in a proceedings volume, and an unpublished dissertation:

Copyright and Offprints

It is a condition of publication in the Journal that authors assign copyright to the European 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 a pdf file of their contribution. Copies of offprints may be purchased in batches of 50 if ordered in advance of production of the corresponding issue.
