Geometric Flows

Edited by: Mauro Carfora and Carlo Mantegazza

In recent years, geometric flows have emerged as an indispensable tool for addressing classical problems in geometric analysis, topology, and partial differential equations. They also provide a natural setting for formulating many physical evolution problems in contexts ranging from applied mathematics to quantum field theory and general relativity.  Geometric Flows is an open access electronic journal that publishes cutting-edge research in geometric flow theory and on all areas in which geometric flows, applied mathematics, theoretical and mathematical physics interact with each other. 

Why subscribe and read

Geometric Flows is an open access journal which exposes readers to the research frontier concerning geometric flow theory. It features papers presenting the state-of-the-art of a rapidly developing field lying at the interface between geometric analysis, applied mathematics, theoretical and mathematical physics.

Why submit

Geometric Flows is an open access electronic journal providing an opportunity to publish high quality research papers focused on all areas in which geometric flows, applied mathematics, theoretical and mathematical physics interact with each other. The area of geometric flows theory and of its applications is now very much at the forefront of mathematical research, and Geometric Flows provides high quality peer reviewing and a timely feedback on submitted papers.
The journal also ensures secure archiving by De Gruyter and the independent archiving service Portico.

  • focus on the aims and scope of the journal;
  • be clearly and correctly written - should contain all essential features of a scientific publication that is easy to understand for the target audience;
  • written in English - attention to detail of the language will avoid severe misunderstandings which might lead to rejection of the paper;
  • be delivered in electronic format.

The journal publishes:

  • Research Articles
  • Review Papers
  • Rapid Communications

Formatting Requirements
Our contributors are asked to make sure their submissions comply with rules governing the formatting. Although the journal can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to deliver a properly formatted electronic version of the article.

We accept submission of text, tables and figures as separate files or as a composite file. For your initial submission, we recommend you upload your entire manuscript, including tables and figures, as a single PDF file. If you are invited to submit a revised manuscript, please provide us with individual files: an editable text and publication-quality figures.

Any articles that have been prepared in LaTeX will be accepted for review, but only in PDF format. Post acceptance, text files of the revised manuscript and tables are required for use in the production. Authors are encouraged to use De Gruyter Open LaTeX template file.

Authors should clearly indicate location of tables and figures in the text if these elements are given separately or at the end of the manuscript. If this information is not provided to the editorial office, we will assume that they should be left at the end of the text.

To ensure fair and objective decision-making, authors must declare any associations that pose a conflict of interest in connection with evaluated manuscripts (see Editorial Policy for details). Authors may suggest up to two referees not to use and in such cases additional justification should be provided in the cover letter. Authors are encouraged to recommend up to five reviewers who are not members of their institution(s) and have never been associated with them or their laboratory(ies); please provide contact information for suggested reviewers. The Editors reserve the right to select expert reviewers at their discretion. For further instructions, please carefully follow the guidelines described in Instructions for Authors.

Open Access License
Authors have to sign an Open Access License that is available on the webpage. We encourage the authors to send the signed license along with the manuscript. Please note, that no article will be published unless the Open Access License is signed.
