All articles submitted to this journal are peer-reviewed. Communications of the AMS has a single anonymous 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.
Authors are asked to include brief discussions at the beginning of their paper that places their results in a broad mathematical context. It should be written at a level comparable to the first 10 or 15 minutes of a colloquium talk for mathematicians of all backgrounds. CAMS covers the full scope of pure and applied mathematics and aims to disseminate even the most technical results in a way that a broad range of mathematicians can appreciate.
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

- 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 2020 Mathematics Subject Classification representing the primary and secondary subjects of the article.
The AMS Author Resource Center provides TeX Resources, the AMS Style Guide, the Mathematics Subject Classification, and further useful tools for preparing your manuscript. Journal abbreviations used in bibliographies are available for download.
Once a paper has been accepted for publication, authors should follow the online Submission Instructions.
All authors must submit the Consent to Publish. All authors must agree regarding the Copyright Agreement. If the article is to be published in one of the AMS Open Access journals, authors must agree which Creative Commons License will be selected.
