Where to Send Files for Accepted Papers

Papers should be submitted in final form. Only typographical errors should be corrected in proof; composition charges for any major deviations from the manuscript will be passed on to the author.

Submission of electronically prepared manuscripts is required, with a strong preference for AMS LaTeX. To assist authors in preparing electronic manuscripts, the AMS has prepared author packages. The author package includes instructions for preparing electronic manuscripts, the AMS Author Handbook, samples, graphic creation instructions, and a style file. Electronic manuscripts must be submitted in either AMS LaTeX (preferred) or AMS TeX. For more technical information, please visit

Electronically prepared manuscripts


  • ACCEPTED papers can be submitted via the web
  • For security and confidentiality reasons, this system requires that you have an AMS Web Account. You will be given an opportunity to create an account as you go through the submission process.


  • Can be sent via email to
  • Include a message indicating the paper is to appear in Quarterly of Applied Mathematics


  • Files for journal articles and graphics can also be transferred via FTP (see this sample FTP Session for instructions). You must use an FTP client; a web browser will not work.
  • Bundle all your files together into a zip file.
  • Login as anonymous and enter your email address as the password. Once logged in, connect to the incoming directory and transfer the files in binary mode. This is the only directory in the FTP area which is open to write access.
  • After the transfer is complete, mail must be sent to  informing the 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 paper is to appear.
  • If you have difficulty in transferring files to the AMS FTP site, send mail to


  • Electronically prepared manuscripts may also be sent to the AMS at:

Quarterly of Applied Mathematics
Electronic Prepress Department
American Mathematical Society
201 Charles Street
Providence, RI 02904-2294 USA

or to the Managing Editor.
