Initial Submission for Peer Review

All articles submitted to this journal are peer-reviewed.  The AMS has a single blind peer-review process in which the reviewers know who the authors of the manuscript are, but the authors do not have access to the information on who the peer reviewers are. The AMS uses Centralized Manuscript Processing for initial submissions to AMS journals.  The preferred method of submission is to upload a PDF file using the Initial Manuscript Submission form.

An alternate method is to send one copy of the paper to the following address:

Centralized Manuscript Processing
JOURNAL OF THE AMS
201 Charles Street
Providence, Rhode Island
02904-2294 USA

If a paper copy is being forwarded to the AMS, the following information is required with the submission (note that all contact information, particularly email addresses, must be supplied to avoid delay):

- Name of the journal to which the paper is submitted
- Name of the corresponding author
- Contact information including email address and mailing address
- The author should suggest an appropriate Editor to review the paper

No paper that has been previously published, or is being considered for publication elsewhere, should be submitted to the American Mathematical Society, nor may a paper that is under consideration by the American Mathematical Society be submitted elsewhere.

Included with the footnotes to the paper should be the 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification representing the primary and secondary subjects of the article. The classifications are accessible from

http://www.ams.org/msc

The Mathematics Subject Classification footnote may be followed by a list of key words and phrases describing the subject matter of the article.
