Submission

All articles submitted to this journal are peer-reviewed. Representation Theory has adopted a double anonymous peer review model in which both authors and referees of a given article remain anonymous to each other. 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
REPRESENTATION THEORY
201 Charles Street
Providence, Rhode Island
02904-2213 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 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.
