JEMS summary  | Online article submission

Submission of Manuscripts

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

The following information is required with the submission:

  • Name of author(s) together with email address(es)
  • Complete mailing address(es)
  • Name of the corresponding author
  • 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification representing the subjects of the article
  • Key words describing the subject matter of the article
  • Authors may indicate which Editor is closest to the subject of the paper.

Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before and that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Each author should keep a minimal interval of 12 months between submissions of different papers.

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 prepare the article, authors are advised to use the journal's TeX template jems-template.tex (right-click the link and select "save link target as" to download) and follow the sample file: jems-template.pdf.

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.

To avoid distortion from rescaling, figures must not be wider than 125 mm. They should be sent as EPS files (encapsulated postscript), suitable for direct reproduction without major reduction. Authors are advised to use colour with caution, if at all. While the online version will preserve colour, the printed version will appear in black and white. Exceptions will be made only if colour is absolutely essential and must be agreed upon in advance of publication.

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show the preferred house style for references to a book, a paper in a journal, a paper in a proceedings volume, and an unpublished dissertation: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, but no later than when the proofs are returned. Prices are available on request from the publisher (
