Instructions to Authors

Submitting a manuscript

Extracta Mathematicae (E.M.) accepts original research papers in any of the areas listed in Covered areas. E.M. is also open to consider the publication of high-quality survey papers.

To submit a paper, authors are requested to send their contributions in a single PDF file to or to, including a covering letter and a suggestion about which member of the Editorial Board the author feels could handle the paper.

Manuscripts must be written in English, although the Editors may exceptionally consider manuscripts written in other languages. Papers must contain an abstract, the AMS 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification and some keywords. Moreover, it is expected that articles contain a good introduction and an up-to-date bibliography.

Selection process

The selection process will follow the COPE Code of Conduct. In particular, it is understood that a paper submitted to E.M. has not been published previously and that the same work is not simultaneously under consideration in any other journal. Moreover, all the authors listed in the paper must have significantly contributed to the research, and they will provide retractions or corrections of mistakes, if necessary.

All papers submitted to E.M. will be refereed. After an initial screening process performed by the Executive Board, each submission to E.M. is assigned to either a member of the Editorial Board, or to an independent referee under the supervision of a member of the Executive Board. If the process concludes with a positive recommendation accepted by the Executive Board, the final published (online and printed) copy will contain a declaration “Presented by” stating the member or members of the Executive or Editorial Board (or, eventually, an independent referee) which have managed the process. Upon acceptance, a LaTeX version of the submitted document will be required to the authors.

In case of conflict of interest, the members of the Executive or Editorial Board in conflict are excluded of the process.

Publication in E.M. is free from processing, submission or page charges.
