Manuscript Submission

Submission of Papers

Submission of a manuscript implies (a) that the same work has not been published before; (b) that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; and (c) that its publication has been approved by all co-authors.

The IMS uses The Electronic Journal Management System (EJMS) for submission and handling of papers by the editorial board and reviewers for its journals. Hard copy submissions are acceptable only in the rare cases that computer facilities are not available to an author. Authors should access the EJMS at http://www.e-publications.org/ims/submission/. If you are a first time user you must complete the registration. You are only required to register once.

After the registration is complete you will have the ability to submit your manuscript. After completing the form you will then upload your PDF file.

Note: For instructions on the submission of revisions of papers, please see Contacts.

Submission of Reference Papers

Unpublished or not easily available papers cited in the manuscript should be submitted with the manuscript. This information may be sent as supplementary files.

Preparation of Manuscripts

Please see detailed instructions on Preparation of Manuscripts.

LaTeX files of accepted papers

After a paper is accepted, you will be asked to provide Mattson Publishing Services with a LaTeX file of the final version of the paper, if one is available. Other forms of TeX are acceptable if LaTeX is not available. You will also be asked to supply source files for figures (.eps or .jpg are preferred) along with a PDF file.

Galley Proofs

The corresponding author will receive email regarding galley proofs. This email will also include instructions for returning corrections as well as links to forms required for publication.
