Information for authors

Preparing the manuscript

We recommend that authors prepare their manuscript with Latex. Once the article is accepted for publication, the final version will be formatted in the journal's style sheet .

Submission procedure

The procedure consists of the following steps:

  • upload the article on an open archive (HAL or arXiv);
  • log in on the journal website by clicking on the button on top right of the screen (this step requires to have/create an Episciences or HAL account);
  • click on the button "Submit an article" and follow the instructions. Please note that the Document identifier field has to be filled in with the number of the HAL/arXiv identifier only (e.g. 1601.00000 instead of arXiv:1601.00000).

Detailed information is available here.

Once the article has been submitted, and until the final decision has been taken by the editorial board, the authors can see its status through "My account / My submissions". All exchanges between the authors and the journal go through the platform, which keeps track of them.
