Aims and Scope
Studies in Nonlinear Dynamics & Econometrics (SNDE) recognizes that advances in statistics and dynamical systems theory can increase our understanding of economic and financial markets. The journal seeks both theoretical and applied papers that characterize and motivate nonlinear phenomena. Researchers are required to assist replication of empirical results by providing copies of data and programs online. Algorithms and rapid communications are also published.
- Type of Publication:
A peer-reviewed journal since 1996, Studies in Nonlinear Dynamics & Econometrics (SNDE) is at the forefront of statistical and theoretical approaches to economics. The journal studies ways in which econometrics and dynamical systems theory increase our understanding of economic and financial markets. The journal disseminates authors' algorithms, programs, and data sets, allowing other scholars to replicate empirical results. Authors include econometricians such as Clive Granger, James Hamilton, and Halbert White, and theorists Jess Benhabib, Alan Kirman, and Kazuo Nishimura. The journal is ranked in the Thomson/ISI Journal Citation Reports: its 2010 impact factor is 0.765, and it ranks 147th out of 304 economics journals and 23rd out of 42 mathematical methods social science journals.

What scholars are saying about Studies in Nonlinear Dynamics & Econometrics
Studies in Nonlinear Dynamics & Econometrics provides issues, data, and codes for empirical research so that one can test and learn the nonlinear model by himself (or herself). I really appreciate this Journal, in that it gives me a chance to study nonlinear models and apply them in my research.

Submission of Manuscripts
Instructions for Authors
Manuscript Preparation Guidelines
This document provides authors with details on policy, copyediting, formatting, and layout requirements pertaining to final manuscript submission to this journal. All manuscripts must have correct formatting to be considered ready for publication.
The entire manuscript submission and review process is handled through an online system named ScholarOne. All manuscripts should be submitted to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/dgsnde
Unpublished material: Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described is not copyrighted, published or submitted elsewhere, except in abstract form. The corresponding author should ensure that all authors approve the manuscript before its submission.
Ethical conduct of research: The authors must describe and confirm safeguards to meet ethical standards.
Conflict of interest: When authors submit a manuscript, they are responsible for recognizing and disclosing financial and/or other conflicts of interest that might bias their work and/or could inappropriately influence his/her judgment. If no specified acknowledgement is given, the Publishers assume that no conflict of interest exists.
Copyright: Manuscripts are accepted on condition of transfer of copyright (for U.S. government employees: to the extent transferable) to Studies in Nonlinear Dynamics & Econometrics. Once the manuscript is accepted, it may not be published elsewhere without the consent of the copyright holders.
The ScholarOne system has been designed to improve the scholarly publication process for authors. Among the many improvements we offer over traditional journals, the most significant is that we have dramatically shortened the period between the initial submission and the final publication of a peer-reviewed article. Much of this time savings is due to the innovative use of electronic publication. These innovations, however, require certain changes in the way authors need to prepare accepted manuscripts for electronic publication.
De Gruyter does provide a light copyedit of manuscripts for this journal, but authors remain responsible for being their own copyeditors.
All manuscripts must be written in clear and concise English. If you have reasons to doubt your proficiency with respect to spelling, grammar, etc. (e.g., because English is not your native language), then you may wish to employ—at your expense—the services of a professional language editor.
Please get in touch with the Language Editors directly to discuss details.

CONTENT and STRUCTURE
- Manuscripts should be submitted as LaTex files whenever possible. However, Word, docx, or rtf files are also accepted. For the LaTeX formatting guide, please download the LaTeX template zip file, located under the LATEX TEMPLATE heading below.
- If your manuscript contains special characters, equations, etc. please make sure to also supply a PDF version as a reference file. This will be used to ensure any formatting issues introduced during the submission process can be corrected accurately.
- Write your article in English
- Use the following document structure:
- Introduction (titling this section is optional)
- Subsequent sections which include tables, references to figures and figure captions.
- Appendices (if any).
- Explanation of symbols mentioned in the text.
- References - Include a proper bibliography following the guidelines in the References section below.
- Please supply figures in separate files, not embedded in the text. Please see the "Tables, Figures, and Graphs" section below for more detailed instructions regarding figure submission.
This is fine for us --- having the figures at the end is OK for refereeing purposes.
- Book reviews must start with the citation of the book at the top of the first page.
For authors working with LaTeX files, please see the related files and documentation at http://www.degruyter.com/staticfiles/pdfs/DeGruyter_LaTeX_template_package.zip, including a template for author use and instructions for working with the files.
- Only use Unicode fonts (e.g. Times New Roman, Arial)
- Set the font color to black for the majority of the text. De Gruyter encourages authors to take advantage of the ability to use color in the production of figures, maps, images, and graphs. However, you need to appreciate that this will cause some of your readers problems when they print the document on a black and white printer. For this reason, you are advised to avoid the use of colors in situations where their translation to black and white would render the material illegible or incomprehensible.
EMPHASIZED TEXT, TITLES, and FOREIGN TERMS
- To indicate text you wish to emphasize, use italics rather than underlining. The use of color to emphasize text is discouraged.
- Foreign terms should be set in italics rather than underlined.
- Titles of books, movies, etc., should be set in italics rather than underlined.
The use of abbreviations and acronyms is permitted provided they are defined the first time they are used.
Headings (e.g., title of sections) should be distinguished from the main body text:
- Clearly indicate the heading hierarchy.
- Be consistent in whether or not you use headline case, or you capitalize the first word and leave the rest in lower-case.
- Footnotes must appear at the bottom of the page on which they are referenced rather than at the end of the paper.
- Excessively long footnotes are better handled in an appendix.
TABLES, FIGURES & GRAPHS
- General requirements: All illustrations must be of reproduction-ready quality and in EPS, TIF, or JPG format. They will be reduced in size to fit, whenever possible, the width of a single column. Lettering of all figures within the article should be uniform in style (preferably a sans serif typeface like Helvetica) and of sufficient size (ca. 8 pt.).Uppercase letters A, B, C, etc. should be used to identify parts of multi-part figures. Cite all figures in the text in numerical order. Indicate the approximate placement of each figure. Do not embed figures within the text body of the manuscript; submit figures in separate files. Only figures (graphs, line drawings, photographs, etc) should be labeled as ‘figures’, not tables or equations.
- Halftone figures (grayscale and color) should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and be of good contrast. Authors are welcome to submit color illustrations. We are pleased to offer both Print and Online publication of color figures free of charge.
- Line drawings must be of reproduction-ready quality. Please note that faint shading may be lost upon reproduction. When drawing bar graphs, use patterning instead of grey scales. Lettering of all figures should be uniform in style. A resolution of 1200 dpi is recommended.
- Figure legends: Provide a short descriptive title and a legend to make each figure self-explanatory on separate pages. Explain all symbols used in the figures. Remember to use the same abbreviations as in the text body.
- Permissions: It is the authors’ responsibility to obtain permission to reproduce original or modified material that has been previously published. Any permissions fees are the responsibility of the author(s).
- Offprints: The electronic files of typeset articles in Adobe Acrobat PDF format are provided free of charge; corresponding authors receive notification that their article has been published online. Paper offprints can be ordered in addition; an offprint order form will accompany the page proofs and should be completed and returned with the corrected proofs immediately.
- Please do not embed figures in the text. Instead, they should be referenced in the text and submitted in separate files.
- Number tables consecutively using Arabic numerals. Tables should appear in the document near where they are referenced in the text. Provide a short descriptive title, column headings, and (if necessary) footnotes to make each table self-explanatory. Refer to tables in the text as Table 1, 2 etc. Use Table 1, etc. in the table legends.
- Tables must not be displayed as images.
MATHEMATICS and EQUATIONS
- Roman letters used in mathematical expressions as variables must be italicized. Roman letters used as part of multi-letter function names should not be italicized. Subscripts and superscripts must be a smaller font size than the main text.
- Type short mathematical expressions inline.
- Longer expressions must appear as display math, as must expressions using many different levels (e.g., such as fractions).
- Ensure that Equations are typed or created with a plug-in, such as Word Formula Editor or MathType. Mathematical expressions must not be displayed as images
- Important definitions or concepts can also be set off as display math.
- Number your equations sequentially.
- Insert a blank line before and after each equation.
- Whether equation numbers are on the right or left is the choice of the author(s). However, make sure to be consistent in this.
- When proofing your document, pay particular attention to the rendering of the mathematics, especially symbols and notation drawn from other-than-standard fonts.
Please use the Chicago Manual of Style author-date system for parenthetical citation in the text and the related reference list entry. For more specific details please visit: http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html and click on the Author-Date tab.
