Authors may not submit papers that are under consideration for publication elsewhere, and, if an author decides to offer a submitted paper to another journal, the paper must be withdrawn from IMAJNA before the new submission is made.

Supplementary material Manuscripts may include supplementary material to be made available by the publisher as online-only content,linked to the online manuscript. Manuscripts accompanied by online Supplementary material are designated with an ' S ' in the Table of Contents in the print edition. For a definition of Supplementary material and guidelines for submitting it click here .

Colour reproduction All figures provided in colour will automatically be published online in colour, with no charge. Authors are charged £350/$700 per figure for colour reproduction in print if this is requested. However, some print colour figures may be reproduced for free at the discretion of the Editors.


The title page should include the name, affiliation and address of each author, and a short abstract. Each section, including the introduction, should be numbered, with equations numbered, for example (2.1), (2.2), etc. in section 2, on the right-hand side of the page. Nonstandard notation should be explained in the text. Footnotes should be kept to the minimum.

For specific information regarding style, please refer to the IMA style guide.


The Harvard system of references, giving the surname of the author(s) and year of publication in the text, should be used. Each listed reference should begin with the authors' surnames followed by initials, the year, and the title of the work. Then, for a journal article, the journal name (abbreviated in accordance with Mathematical Reviews ), volume number, and inclusive page numbers should follow, while, for a book, the title, the editor (if applicable), the place of publication, and publisher should be stated.


Authors of accepted papers will be asked to provide the LATEX source files of their paper.



 In preparing the paper, please follow the instructions available at http://www.oxfordjournals.org/imanum/for_authors/guide_to_ima_latex_class_and_sty.html . If you have any questions about the use of the class files, please contact the production editor Victoria Bache at victoria.bache@oup.com

Please carefully follow all of the usual instructions to authors as detailed above and ensure that your references follow the correct referencing system.


It is a condition of publication in the Journal that authors complete a copyright licence form. Upon receipt of accepted manuscripts at Oxford Journals, authors will be invited to complete this.

Please note that by submitting an article for publication you confirm that you are the corresponding/submitting author and that Oxford University Press ("OUP") may retain your email address for the purpose of communicating with you about the article. You agree to notify OUP immediately if your details change. If your article is accepted for publication OUP will contact you using the email address you have used in the registration process. Please note that OUP does not retain copies of rejected articles.

This ensures that requests from third parties to reproduce articles are handled efficiently and consistently and will also allow the article to be as widely disseminated as possible. In assigning copyright, authors may use their own material in publications provided that the Journal is acknowledged as the original place of publication, and Oxford University Press is notified in writing and in advance. In consideration of this, the publisher will supply free electronic access to the corresponding author of an article. Authors will get a free URL link to their article online.
