#### Open Access

## Overview

Open Mathematics is a **fully peer-reviewed**, open access, electronic journal that publishes significant, original and relevant works in all areas of mathematics. The journal provides the readers with free, instant, and permanent access to all content worldwide; and the authors with extensive promotion of published articles, **long-time preservation**, language-correction services, no space constraints and immediate publication.

Open Mathematics is listed inter alia by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters) - Current Contents/Physical, Chemical and Earth Sciences, JCR and SCIE. Our standard policy requires each paper to be reviewed by at least two Referees and the peer-review process is single-blind.

### Aims and Scope

The journal aims at presenting high-impact and relevant research on topics across the full span of mathematics. Coverage includes:

- Algebra
- Algebraic Geometry
- Category Theory
- Complex Analysis
- Control Theory and Optimization
- Differential Equations
- Differential Geometry

## Submission of Manuscripts

### Instructions for Authors

**MANUSCRIPTS**

Open Mathematics encourages the submission of substantial full-length bodies of work. There are no specific length restrictions for the overall manuscript or individual sections; however, we urge the authors to present and discuss their findings in a concise and accessible manner.

Manuscripts should be submitted to the journal via online submission system Editorial Manager available for this journal at http://www.editorialmanager.com/openmath/. In case of problems, please contact the Editorial Office of this journal at Agnieszka.Bednarczyk-Drag@degruyteropen.com.

**SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS**

Manuscripts have to be written in LATEX, AMS-TEX, AMS-LATEX. We do not accept papers in Plain TEX format. If additionally a PDF file is supplied, the peer review process will be speed up. Authors are encouraged to submit the final version of the paper using the De Gruyter Open LATEX template.

For detailed information, please see Instruction for Authors.

**EDITORIAL POLICYUnpublished 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 when applicable. See Editorial Policy for details.

**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 Editors assume that no conflict of interest exists. Authors are encouraged to fill in the ICMJE Conflicts of Interest Form (available here) and send it in the electronic format to the Managing Editor.

**Copyright:**All authors retain copyright, unless – due to their local circumstances – their work is not copyrighted. The non-commercial use of each article will be governed by the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs license. The corresponding author grants the journal exclusive license for commercial use of the article, by signing the Open Access License. Scanned copy of license should be sent to the journal, as soon as possible.

**Authorship:**Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be named in an Acknowledgement section. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors (according to the above definition) and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the author list of the manuscript, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

**Peer Review process:**The Editors reserve the right to decline the submitted manuscript without review, if the studies reported are not sufficiently novel or important to merit publication in the journal. Manuscripts deemed unsuitable (insufficient originality or of limited interest to the target audience) are returned to the author(s) without review. The Editor seeks advice from experts in the appropriate field. Research articles and communications are refereed by a minimum of two reviewers, review papers by at least three. Authors are requested to suggest persons competent to review their manuscript. However, please note that this will be treated only as a suggestion, and the final selection of reviewers is exclusively the Editor's decision. The final decision of acceptance in made by Managing Editor or, in case of conflict, by the Editor-in-Chief.

**Scientific Misconduct:**This journal publishes only original manuscripts that are not also published or going to be published elsewhere. Multiple submissions/publications, or redundant publications (re-packaging in different words of data already published by the same authors) will be rejected. If they are detected only after publication, the journal reserves the right to publish a Retraction Note. In each particular case Editors will follow COPE's Code of Conduct and implement its advice.
