Submitting Your Accepted Article

After your article is accepted for publication in an AMS journal:

  • Send the electronic source files (.tex and .eps) for the final accepted version of the manuscript to the AMS using one of the submission options below.

Note: AMS technical staff process initial submissions quickly upon arrival in our office; therefore, we cannot accept revised submissions unless there is a critical error in the initial submission.   If you find a correction after your initial submission, please indicate the change on the confirmation/proof copy you will receive prior to publication of your paper.

Memoirs is an author-prepared publication. Once formatted for print and on-line publication, articles will be published as is with the addition of  AMS-prepared frontmatter and backmatter.  Articles are not copyedited; however, confirmation copy will be sent to authors.

Sending your Files to the AMS

Preferred:

  • Web
    • Submit ACCEPTED articles via the web.
    • For security and confidentiality reasons, you must have an AMS Web Account. You will be given an opportunity to create an account as you go through the submission process.

Other options:

  • Email
    • Send files via email to pub-submit@ams.org.
    • Include a message indicating the name of the publication in which your article is to appear.
  • FTP
    • Bundle all your files together into a zip file.
    • Transfer files for journal articles and graphics via FTP (see this sample FTP Session for instructions). You must use an FTP client; a web browser will not work.
    • Log in as anonymous and enter your email address as the password.
    • Connect to the incoming directory and transfer the files in binary mode. This is the only directory in the FTP area that is open to write access.
    • After you complete the transfer, you must send mail to pub-submit@ams.org to inform AMS staff of the transfer. The message should include the name of the file(s) transferred and the name of the publication in which the article is to appear.
    • If you have difficulty transferring files to the AMS FTP site, send mail to tech-support@ams.org.
  • CD
    • Electronically prepared manuscripts may also be sent to:

      Electronic Prepress Department
