Rendiconti del Seminario Matematico della Università di Padova

Submission of manuscripts

Manuscripts presented for publication can be written in English, Italian, or French. A summary in English is required if the paper is not written in English.

Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before and that it has neither been submitted to another journal, nor will it be before receipt of the answer from the Board of the Rendiconti.

Authors must submit their papers electronically in PDF format, according to the instructions below, using the online submission form.

Format of manuscripts

The Journal strongly encourages authors to make available LaTex files for typesetting purposes. Upon final acceptance of your paper you will be asked to upload all source files and macros, together with postscript or pdf files, to a link to be provided.

Authors are advised to create their LaTex files using the journal's LaTeX style files rsmup_macros.zip (right-click the link and select ‘save link target as’ to download), which may facilitate the production procedure. The folder contains:

There is also, for advanced users, a file fonts.zip that includes the fonts used by the class. This is however optional.

The title page should include the name, affiliation and address (together with e-mail address) of each author and:

The author to whom proofs should be sent should be marked as the corresponding author.

Graphical items should be prepared as eps (encapsulated PostScript) files and included by using the graphicx package.

To avoid distortion from rescaling, figures must not be wider than 125 mm. They should be sent as EPS file (encapsulated postscript), or as fair copy on paper, suitable for direct photographic reproduction without major reduction. All figures, tables, etc. should be numbered, with the insertion place clearly indicated.

References should be listed at the end of the manuscript in the form: authors' name initials followed by surnames, title of paper, journal title (abbreviated in accordance with Mathematical Reviews), volume number, year of publication in parentheses, and page numbers. For books, indicate also the publisher. The reference list should be arranged in alphabetical order. Items not cited in the text should not appear in the list.

Proofreading

Authors will be granted an opportunity to correct the galley proofs once before publication. Excessive changes will be charged.

Copyright

If an article is accepted for publication, the authors must waive any right concerning the publication of their article to the Rendiconti in the person of its Editor-in-Chief (a waiver form will be sent along with the letter of acceptance). In assigning copyright, authors may use their own material in other, non-commercial publications provided that the Journal is properly acknowledged as the original place of publication.

Offprints

Authors of papers published in the Journal will be entitled to a pdf file of their contribution. Copies of offprints may be purchased in batches of 50 if ordered in advance of production of the corresponding issue, but no later than when the proofs are returned. Prices are available on request from the publisher (info@ems-ph.org).
