Submission of manuscripts

All papers must be submitted electronically using http://pm.spm.pt.

The PM class file for LaTeX2e

To prepare your article, use the journal’s prepared LaTeX document class file PM.cls (right-click the link and select ‘save link target as’ to download) and follow the sample file: example.tex, example.dvi, example.pdf.

Please prepare graphical items for inclusion in your article as eps (encapsulated PostScript) files and include them by using the graphicx package.

Footnotes should be avoided.

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.

Please use the 2010 MSC Codes when submitting your paper and provide key words.

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 30 free offprints, to be shared between authors of joint papers. Extra copies of offprints may be purchased if ordered on the form sent to the corresponding author with the proofs.
