Originality


Submission of a manuscript acknowledges that the manuscript is original and is not, in whole or in part, published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. It is understood also that the manuscript will not be submitted elsewhere while under consideration for publication in this journal.


Language


Articles in IJAS are usually in English.


Required items


A brief abstract of about 150 words or less must be included. It should be self-contained and not make any reference to the bibliography. Also required are keywords and subject classifications for the article, and, for each author, postal address, affiliation (if appropriate), and email address if available. A home-page URL is optional.


Format


Authors are encouraged to use LaTeX and the standard article class, but submissions in other varieties of TeX, and exceptionally in other formats, are acceptable. Initial uploads should normally be in PDF format; after the refereeing process we will ask you to submit all source material.


References


Bibliographical references should be complete, including article titles and page ranges. All references in the bibliography should be cited in the text. The use of BibTeX is preferred but not required. Tags will be converted to the house format;however, for submission you may use the format of your choice. Links will be provided to all literature with known web locations and authors are encouraged to provide their own links in addition to those supplied in the editorial process.


Figures


Figures must be of publication quality. After acceptance, you will need to submit the original source files in vector graphics format for all diagrams in your manuscript: vector EPS or vector PDF files are the most useful.


Most drawing and graphing packages Mathematica, Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, MATLAB, etc.  allow the user to save files in one of these formats. Make sure that what you are saving is vector graphics and not a bitmap. If you need help, please write to  editorial_office@m-sciences.com  with as many details as you can about how your graphics were generated.


Bundle your figure files into a single archive (using .zip, .tar, .rar or other format of your choice) and upload on the link you been provided at acceptance time.


Each figure should be captioned and numbered so that it can float. Small figures occupying no more than three lines of vertical space can be kept in the text (the curve looks like this:). It is acceptable to submit a manuscript with all figures at the end, if their placement is specified in the text by means of comments such as Place Figure 1 here. The same considerations apply to tables.


White Space


Forced line breaks or page breaks should not be inserted in the document. There is no point in your trying to optimize line and page breaks in the original manuscript. The manuscript will be reformatted to use the journal's preferred fonts and layout.


Page Charges


Page charges are required for publication in the International Journal of Algebra and Statistics. These cover some of the costs of publication ( Five  US Dollar per page). The invoice will be sent automatically on acceptance of an article for publication in the journal. We thank you for your prompt submission of completed page charge payment so that we can publish your paper more quickly and efficiently. Please be advised that we cannot publish papers until we have received publication fee.


Proofs


Page proofs will be made available to authors (or to the designated corresponding author) at a Web site in PDF format. Failure to acknowledge the receipt of proofs or to return corrections within the requested deadline may cause publication to be postponed.


Reprints


The corresponding author, at no cost, will be provided with a PDF file of the article via e-mail. The PDF file is a watermarked version of the published article and includes a cover sheet with the journal cover image and a disclaimer outlining the terms and conditions of use.
