Graphics Guidelines Provides detailed instructions for creating and preparing graphics for inclusion in an article. Following these guidelines will help your article move quickly through production.
- Color Policy The AMS normally does not include color graphics in the print version of its journals, except in special circumstances. (Note, however, that color graphics that appear in black and white in the print version will appear in color in the electronic version as submitted.) When the Managing Editor and Publisher mutually agree that color graphics are warranted, figures should have a resolution of at least 300 pixels per inch when printed at 100%. Ideally, they should be in EPS format; TIFF and JPEG are also acceptable. Note that PostScript is not the same as Encapsulated PostScript; the latter is a subset of the former.
Consent to Publish and Copyright Agreement
- After an article that has been accepted in an AMS green open access journal is received at the AMS, a Consent to Publish form will be sent to all authors of the article. All authors must return a signed consent form before the article can be published.
Creative Commons License
- Articles published in an AMS gold open access journal will be distributed under the terms of either the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial License (CC-BY-NC) or the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC-BY). Authors are required to select a license before an article moves into production. Authors retain copyright to their articles under both CC-BY-NC and CC-BY.
