Author Guidelines

Studies in Applied Mathematics has now adopted ScholarOne Manuscripts for online manuscript submission and peer review.

Manuscript submission

  • Click on the following URL
  • Register for a new account if you have not done so already by going to “Create Account” link (upper RIGHT corner).
  • For review purposes, your paper should be uploaded as a single pdf file.
  • Note: If accepted for publication, source files will be required to be uploaded via your AUTHOR Center.
  • You may include names and emails of co-authors during submission, but you are not required to do so.
  • You may suggest names and emails of potential reviewers, but you are not required to do so. Reviewer suggestions will be used at the discretion of SAPM Editor.
  • Authors for whom English is a second language may choose to have their manuscript professionally edited before submission or during the review process. Authors wishing to pursue a professional English-language editing service should make contact and arrange payment with the editing service of their choice. For more details regarding the recommended services, please refer to:
  • Keep a copy of what you send in case any of the files need to be replaced.

Manuscript preparation

The title page should contain authors, their complete affiliations and contact information, key words, and a short abstract.

Begin with an introductory section that briefly summarizes the main results and explains the paper's significance and contribution to mathematics. Main headings, and all items requiring numbers (e.g., Lemmas, Theorems, Corollaries, and Propositions), should be numbered consecutively throughout the paper. The statements themselves should be in italics. If it is necessary to number display equations, they should be numbered on the right, consecutively throughout the paper. Secondary headings should be double-numbered by section ( e.g., 2.1, 2.2, etc.). Mathematical symbols should be in italics unless, of course, another typeface is necessary (e.g., boldface, roman). A short concluding section may be useful for summarizing the technical results in a qualitative fashion.

The backmatter should appear as follows: acknowledgments, appendix (if any) and references.

References should be cited in the text in order of appearance by number [1]. References at the end of the manuscript should be arranged by number and follow the style of these examples:

1. J. HUNTER and J. B. KELLER. Weakly nonlinear high frequency waves, Comm. Pure Appl. Math. 36:547-569 (1983).

2. J. SMOLLER, Shock Waves and Reaction-Diffusion Equations, Springer-Verlag, New York, 1983.

Status of Manuscript submissions

Authors can track the status of their submission through their AUTHOR center.

In addition, once a paper has been accepted, Author Services enables authors to track their article through the production process to publication online and in print. Authors can check the status of their articles online and choose to receive automated e-mails at key stages of production. Visit for more details on online production tracking and for a wealth of resources including FAQs and tips on article preparation, submission and more.

Author Proof Review

A galley proof will be available for review approximately four weeks after acceptance. An email will be sent to the corresponding author, which will contain a link to the proof. Instructions for returning a proof will also be included in the email notification. One of the options to make galley corrections is by PDF annotations. Instructions for making such annotations can be downloaded by clicking the following link:

Early View Service

Early View articles are complete full-text articles published online in advance of their publication in a printed issue. Early View articles have been fully reviewed, copyedited and typeset. They are the version of record and are available online before being assigned to a specific issue. Because they are in final form, no changes can be made after online publication. The nature of Early View articles means that they do not yet have volume, issue or page numbers, but they can be cited with the Digital Object Identifier (DOI). After print publication, the DOI remains valid and can continue to be used to cite and access the article.
