Preparing Electronic Manuscripts


  • 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.
