Information for authors

Revista de la Unión Matemática Argentina is receiving submissions electronically at this website.

Revista de la Unión Matemática Argentina publishes original research articles in all areas of pure and applied mathematics. To be published in this journal, a paper must be new, correct and nontrivial. Further, it must be of interest to mathematicians. Manuscripts submitted for publication should not be already published nor submitted simultaneously for publication in another journal.

All articles submitted to this journal are peer-reviewed under a single-blind review process. Contributions are initially assessed by the editors for suitability for the journal; those deemed suitable are then sent to at least one independent expert reviewer to assess their scientific quality. The Editor-in-chief and the Managing Editors are responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of all articles.

Authors retain copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal.

Submitted articles are screened for plagiarism using web searches and the expertise of our editors and reviewers. The journal may retract the paper after publication if clear evidence is found that the findings are unreliable as a result of misconduct or honest error.

No charges are applied at any stage of the publication process, and there are no fees for readers either.

Manuscripts should be written in English.

Articles must be initially submitted using a PDF file.

Upon acceptance, authors are required to submit their final manuscripts using LaTeX with the amsart document class, which is present in any standard LaTeX installation. The following fragment should be pasted at the very beginning of the .tex file:

  \geometry{paperwidth=176mm, paperheight=250mm, textheight=189mm,
            tmargin=35mm, lmargin=30mm, rmargin=20mm, headsep=8mm,
            headheight=11.0pt, footskip=30pt, twoside=true}

Any modifications to the main font size or the page layout (e.g. page size, margins, etc.) that might have been present in your manuscript should be removed. Then you should generate the new PDF file and examine it. Note that after applying the geometry parameters above, some elements of your article (equations, tables, figures) may exceed the dimensions of the page. Modify these elements as necessary and recompile, to ensure that they fit the specified page width and height. In you final submission, the PDF should correspond exactly to the .tex file.

Authors should follow as closely as possible the conventions for writing documents with the amsart class, such as:

  • Top matter: Use the command \title. Do not add centering or boldface to the title. For each author, use the commands \author, \address, \email. Do not use footnotes for affiliations.
  • Wrap proofs using the proof environment (i.e., \begin{proof} ... \end{proof}).
  • Control the alignment of equations using the environments provided by the amsmath package (e.g., equation, split, align, multline, gather, etc.). Avoid the obsolete environment eqnarray.
  • Use \label and \ref commands to create automatic cross-references. Cite equations using \eqref.

Bibliographic references should be arranged in alphabetical order by first author's surname. It is important to check the correctness (both in form and in content) of all the references; we strongly recommend the use of the following tools:

Submissions in other formats are accepted, but may experience delays in the publication process. In any case, once the paper is accepted for publication, a final version in LaTeX will be required. Authors who do not use LaTeX with the amsart document class should follow these guidelines (for further layout details, refer to the latest issue of this journal):

  • The title of the manuscript should be four lines below the top of the writing area.
  • The name of the author(s) should follow the title, then the institutional data, and finally the abstract in English, which shall not exceed 200 words.
  • Keywords and/or acknowledgments of financial support should be included in a footnote on the first page.
  • The concepts that are defined shall be written in italics.
  • Figures and tables, with correlative numbering, shall be inserted in the text. In case of appendices, they shall be included at the end of the text, before the references.
