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

Graphical items should be prepared as eps (encapsulated PostScript) files and included by using the graphicx package.

The BibTeX style file for the journal is QT.bst. 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, a preprint, and a dissertation:

Copyright and Offprints

It is a condition of publication in the Journal that authors assign copyright to the European Mathematical Society. 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, but no later than when the proofs are returned. Prices are available on request from the publisher (info@ems-ph.org).
