  • 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
  • Communications and Rapid Communications
  • Reviews and Mini-Reviews
  • Commentaries
  • Letters to the Editor and Amendments

Manuscripts have to be written in LATEX (preferable), AMS-TEX, AMS-LATEX or MS Word - standard DOCUMENT (.DOC). We do not accept papers in Plain TEX format. If additionally a PDF file is supplied, the peer review process will 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.

The journal uses a closed single-blind peer review system.
Unpublished material: Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described is not copyrighted, published or submitted elsewhere, except in abstract form.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 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 acknowledgment is given, the Editors assume that no conflict of interest exists. Authors are encouraged to fill in the ICMJE Conflicts of Inte est 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 License to Publish. Open Access License 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.

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 is made by the 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
