Manuscripts accepted for publication must be typeset by the author in AMS-LaTeX . The handling editor of each submission is responsible for obtaining expert opinions and referee reports. If these are favorable, the editor might ask the authors to revise their manuscript. Based on the recommendation of the referees, the handling editor may propose the manuscript to the full Editorial Board. The Board will vote either to accept or reject the manuscript. Board members may also seek further reports or revisions.
Authors should also supply the Editor with an email address (if available) and current postal address (if applicable) with their affiliation on the last page of the manuscript. These will be printed at the end of each article. To help avoid delays in publication, authors are encouraged to send changes in postal and email addresses to email@example.com , especially before proof has been sent to authors. Articles are electronically published after proof is returned from authors and before appearing in an issue. Once an article is published electronically, author information, such as postal and email addresses, cannot be updated.
- Languages: Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts written in English.
- Author names: All author names must be in First-Middle-Surname order.
- Abstract: An abstract is required for every paper. The abstract should be at least one complete sentence and at most 300 words. The Journal of Algebraic Geometry offers free worldwide access to the electronic abstracts.
- Style: To eliminate unnecessary delay or difficulties in printing, authors may be guided by Mathematics into Type, updated edition, Amer. Math. Soc., 1999.
- Footnotes: Except for a possible acknowledgment of assistance or financial support on the first page, footnotes should be avoided.
- References: References will be published as submitted. For the best presentation, the list of references must be in alphabetical-chronological order; abbreviations of names of journals and references to books should follow the standard form established by Mathematical Reviews®. Journal abbreviations used in bibliographies are accessible here
