Information  for  Authors


It is understood that when submitting a manuscript the author confirms that it has not been previously published or is being considered for publication elsewhere. Please visit the copyright page for more details. 

Manuscripts may be submitted to any of the editors. In addition, you must send a copy of your manuscript to the assistant editor along with a covering note telling us which editor your manuscript is with. You may of course send the manuscript directly to the assistant editor and the Editor-in-Chief can decide on the appropriate editor.

The editorial office prefers electronic submission, but we will accept four typed copies. The intending author should check with their preferred editor regarding submission to them.

The publisher strongly encourages the electronic submission of manuscripts written in LaTeX or AMSLaTeX.  An accompanying DVI, PS or PDF file should also be included.

Contributions will be reviewed in 100 working days.  If a manuscript is re-submitted, the author will be notified within 45 working days. 

The author will be provided with a proof for correction after acceptance. The paper will be published within two weeks of the editorial office receiving the proof readings by the author/s.


Article Preparation

Manuscripts must be written in English.

The front-matter should include the title of the article, author's name, affiliation, e-mail, web page address and postal address. A running head of less than sixty characters should also be given.  You should also include Mathematics Subject Classification codes (MSC2000) as well as a  list of keywords.

The manuscript must be accompanied by a brief abstract no longer than two hundred words. The use of mathematical symbols and displayed formulae must be kept to a minimum.   References to theorems, equations etc. must not appear in the abstract.  Bibliographic references, if vital, should be written in full.

All figures and tables must be centred and labeled.  The position of figures should be clearly indicated in the manuscript and attached in a form suitable for direct reproduction.   Preference is given to figures produced in EPS or PDF format.  Bitmap formats may be acceptable (in this case we would prefer JPG or PNG)  if their resolution does not preclude high quality print reproduction.

All equations, theorems, tables, figures should be referenced as in "Refer to Figure 3.2", or ".. this concludes the proof of Theorem  3.1".  Bibliographic references should be numbered and listed alphabetically at the end of the article. Authors are advised to consult Mathematical Reviews for the standard abbreviations of journal names

Like other journals, JIPAM has its own style for numbering of theorems, etc. which, it is assumed,  that authors will accept once they submit their papers to this journal.

Click here to download a sample article.  You will need AMSLaTeX and the LaTeX graphics package to compile the TeX source code.  DVI, postscript (PS) and PDF versions of the paper are also included.  Refer to this sample for examples of our required formats.

Submission should also be accompanied by a signed "Transfer of Copyright" form. The transfer of copyright will come into affect upon acceptance of the manuscript. Visit the copyright page for more details.



JIPAM would like to encourage the submission of manuscripts of the highest quality. To this end, JIPAM will award an annual prize to the best published paper. The Editor-in-Chief together with a panel of international experts will judge the papers.  The winner will be announced on the following issue of the journal, on the RGMIA web page and the RGMIA mailing list.

Further details will be provided in due course.


Other Information

Authors of published papers without e-mail facilities will be sent thirty off-prints of their published article. Authors will also have the right to use the electronic version of the JIPAM article on one personal web page.
