Guide for Authors

Authors Guide

Article submission:

All researchers are requested to send a LaTeX and PDF file of their article via the journal website (ajmc.aut.ac.ir) in accordance with the manuscript guidelines. The AUT Journal of Mathematics and Computing accepts articles written in English. The submitted articles are not accepted if they have been formerly published or under consideration for publication anywhere else. Furthermore the authors of the article are held responsible for the validity of the contents of the article.

The AJMC tries to make the decision within 4 months after submission. 

Peer review of an article:

Highly acclaimed reviewers assess all the articles. Prompt response of the authors to the corrections and revision requested by the reviewers will result in shorter evaluation time. It is necessary to highlight all the corrections applied to the article in yellow so that the reviewers are able to assess the revised article within the shortest time possible. Please note that the type of review is "Single Blind Peer Review" and reviewers comments are considered highly confidential and the authors will view reviewers comments, questions and requests under the anonymous titles of “reviewer1” and “reviewer2”

The general format of the article:

The size of the pages should be A4. The text should be written in a single column.

Main parts of the manuscript:

Each article should consist of the following main parts:

  • Title page
  • Introduction
  • Main body
  • References

The details of each part are provided in the following subsections. It is worth mentioning that in addition to above necessary parts, the paper may contain one or more appendices. Providing the appendix is optional and if there is any, it should be placed at the end of the paper, after the section of references.

Title page:

The title page should include five main parts: 1-the title of the article, 2-the name and academic information of the authors, 3-the abstract, 4-the keywords, and 5-the Mathematics subject classification (MSC) code. In what follows, the aforementioned elements are described in more details.

Title of the article:

The title of the article should include a maximum of 15 words and contain all the characteristics of the conducted research. In the title, usage of abbreviations should be avoided.

Name and academic information of the authors:

The authors’ names should be written in one line after the title of the article separated by commas. In addition, the information about the authors including their scientific degree, faculty, university, city, country, should be written in one line for each author. Additionally, the authors should mark the corresponding author using an asterisk (*) on the top of his/her name in the list. It is advised to nominate the most acclaimed author as the corresponding author and for articles that are the result of academic research, selecting a faculty member as the corresponding author is of great importance.

Abstract and keywords:

 The abstract should clearly state the subject and the results of the research conducted in a 150 to 250 -word paragraph. In other words, the significance of the subject, the necessity of carrying out this research and a summary of the method and significant results of the research should be stated in the abstract. Including details, tables, illustrations, mathematical equations and formulas should be avoided. The number of keywords at the end of the abstract should be five words or phrases, separated by commas. The abstract should not include undefined abbreviations. In addition, referencing in the abstract should be avoided.

MSC Codes:

The 2010 MSC codes should be mentioned on the title page after the keywords. A typical MSC subject class line on the article may look like:

2010 MSC: Primary: 46M20; Secondary: 46M18, 46H25

Introduction of the article:

In this section, primarily the general aspects of the subject should be stated and afterwards, a summary of the history of the subject and the studies carried out accompanied by their features should be explained (in a way which clarifies the importance of it for the reader.) Then, the innovation and contribution of the research should be explained in one or two paragraphs.

Main body:

Each article should include at least one section placed after “Introduction” and before “References”. Herein, we refer to these sections as “main body”. The main body may contain the description of the problem proposed, the necessary notions and definitions, the solution methods, the theoretical or experimental results, conclusion, acknowledgement, etc. The title and arrangement of those sections constructing the main body of the article can be determined with respect to the authors’ preferences.

References:

The references may include books, articles from scientific journals, patented inventions, conference articles, theses, technical reports, educational workshops, valid websites and other reliable sources. Referring to unpublished reports, rejected articles and other invalid sources should be avoided.

The list of references should be included at the end of the article in English in order of appearance in the text. Therefore, if Persian sources have been used, their information should be translated into English and the term (in Persian) should be written at the end.

All the references should be referred to in the main text of the article only by using their number in the reference list in brackets (e.g. [1]) and it is not needed to mention the word “reference” before it (e.g. reference [1]) unless a sentence starts with these words ( e.g. in reference [1] ….). In order to refer to two references or several references with nonconsecutive numbers, authors should use commas. For referring to several references with consecutive numbers, they should use a dash (e.g. [1, 2], [12-15], [2, 9, 6] or [1, 3-4]).

The Figures:

The schemata, charts, and images used should all be titled “illustration” and be centered in the text. The figures used in the article should be of acceptable quality. After the peer review process and acceptance of the article, the illustrations should be sent separately with a quality of at least 300 pixels/inch and in the TIFF or JPEG format. The label of each axis in the charts should be mentioned with the measurement unit written in parentheses after it separated by a comma.

The tables:

The contents of the tables should be written in English in the center and if captions are used in the tables, they should be located under the corresponding table. The tables should not be presented in the image format.

Mathematical equations:

MathType is a highly practical tool for writing math equations and all the equations in the article should be written using this editor. The explanation of all the variables, components and new symbols used in the equations (if not explained earlier in the text) should be written immediately after the equation without any gaps. All variables must be typed Italic while their units must be typed as normal. 

Measuring units:

The accepted measuring unit is the SI system and if necessary the equivalent in another measuring system may be mentioned in parentheses.
