RLM summary

Submission of manuscripts

Authors are strongly encouraged to submit their manuscripts, according to the instructions below, either directly to a member of the Advisory Committee who is an expert in the respective field or to:

Rendiconti Lincei - Matematica e Applicazioni
Via della Lungara, 10
I-00165 ROMA (RM)

Only in exceptional cases should they be sent to the Editor-in-Chief. Articles may be submitted electronically, and also in hard copy by sending four clear copies, together with the original of any illustrations. Original illustrations will be returned to the authors only if requested. To ease review authors may also send two copies of their own unpublished work to which relevant reference is made in the paper submitted. The Author must also indicate, before the title, to which scientific chapters the matter discussed in the paper belongs.

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 e-mail all source files and macros, together with postscript or pdf files, to the editorial office at rendmat@lincei.it. 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.

The title page should include the name, affiliation and address (together with e-mail address) of each author and a short abstract. The author to whom proofs should be sent should be marked as the corresponding author.

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), or as fair copy on paper, suitable for direct photographic reproduction without major reduction.

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: authors' name initials followed by surnames, 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 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.
