Instructions for authors
Applications of Mathematics publish peer-reviewed research articles complying
with the scope of the journal. Acceptance of the manuscripts is subject to
final approval by the Editorial Board. Submitted manuscripts must comply with
the following conditions. Violation of at least one of them may lead to
rejection of the manuscript without any peer-review.
- Submitted manuscripts must not be published or submitted for publication
- Any kind of plagiarism is not acceptable. Our journal will refuse all
subsequent submissions of authors convicted of plagiarism or other serious
offence against publication ethics. Word-by-word copies
or close imitations of texts from other sources (journals, books, internet, etc.)
without proper citation are considered as plagiarism even if it concerns short
parts (usually at least seven consecutive words) of the manuscript.
- Manuscripts should not exceed 20 pages using the required style. Rare
exceptions are possible subject to prior approval of the Editor-in-Chief.
- Manuscripts must be in good English and language style.
- Manuscripts must be of good typographical quality. Authors are encouraged
to use the template file
containing detailed instructions and to download the TeX style file
Manuscripts in MS-word will not be accepted.
Authors are invited to submit their papers as a single PDF file using the
for online manuscript submission and management.
The authors will be asked to supply the title of the paper, abstract, keywords
and AMS classification.
The person who initially uploads the manuscript in the Journal System is considered
by default the corresponding author responsible for the manuscript as it moves
through the journal’s submission process. All correspondence pertaining to the
manuscript will be sent to him/her via the system.
After the paper is accepted, the corresponding author is asked to provide the paper
in LaTeX, AmSTeX, or Plain TeX format together with all accompanying files.
These files have to match exactly the accepted PDF.
Accepted manuscripts are considered to be in their final form.
Essential changes in the content at the proof stage will be considered only exceptionally.
The Editors cannot be held responsible for possible loss of the manuscript,
therefore the authors should keep a copy of all submitted files.
Preparation of manuscripts
The structure of the manuscript should be as follows:
References should be listed in the following form:
- Title of the paper
- Author's name and city
- Abstract: 7 to 12 lines optimum. We advice to avoid references in
abstract. If necessary they should be given in full form, e.g. J. Haslinger,
I. Hlav\'a\v cek: Contact between elastic perfectly plastic bodies. Apl. Mat.
27 (1982), 27--45.
- Mathematics Subject Classification 2010 (see
- Text of the paper
- References including coordinates from the database
and from MathSciNet,
if the Zentralblatt number is not available.
- Author's complete address including the e-mail address.
 J. Haslinger, I. Hlav\'a\v cek: Contact between elastic perfectly plastic
bodies. Apl. Mat. 27 (1982), 27--45. Zbl 0495.73094, MR0640138
 I. Hlav\'a\v cek, J. Chleboun, I. Babu\v ska:

North-Holland Series in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, Vol. 46,
Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, 2004. Zbl 1116.74003, MR2285091
For abbreviations of names of serials see
MATH. References in the text should be quoted by the
corresponding number in brackets, e.g. . Only references actually cited
in the paper should be included.
To expedite the processing of their manuscripts, the authors are asked to use
the template file
containing detailed instructions and to download the LaTeX style file
files should be used in preparing manuscripts.
Figures must be provided in an electronic form preferably as EPS files.
Please, ensure that the widths of used lines and sizes of used fonts are
sufficiently large. If the EPS files are produced by a graphical or
mathematical software (e.g. Matlab or Maple), please, include also the
corresponding source files (e.g. *.fig).
