guide how to publish
Our basic rules
- Electronic paper submission and processing
- LaTeX format following a special AMCS style
- License to publish
- Page charges.
Paper proposals may be submitted only through our electronic submission system. There are no deadlines or calls for papers - proposals may be submitted continuously.
The style of papers submitted to AMCS is determined by a special LaTeX class, which is described in detail in our instructions for authors - please follow these closely to prepare your work properly. Note that NO OTHER FORMATS are accepted! Also, be aware that, if accepted, a paper will be subject to copyediting for conformity with the journal style and clarity.
Papers submitted for possible publication in AMCS are initially evaluated by the editors with regard to their suitability for the journal. This refers most of all to the content and its scientific quality. Papers with insufficient contribution to our fields of interest and/or poor organisation and/or not prepared in the required style are rejected without delay so that the authors can improve or submit their work elsewhere. The manuscripts that are ultimately registered are submitted to 3-4 qualified, impartial reviewers for half-blind thorough scientific evaluation via the AMCS online editorial system. Papers are accepted unconditionally if the reviewers agree that they may be published in their present form. Otherwise, the reviews are forwarded to the authors for paper revision and comments on the reviewers' remarks. Paper revisions are submitted for re-review if requested by the reviewers or justified by the editors. The final decision on paper publication (accept/reject) is made by the editors and is not subject to appeal nor justification. The full review process takes approximately 4 months, but the editors do not set a deadline for the final decision. A general list of all reviewers for a given volume will be published on the journal website and in the closing issue.

AMCS publishes only full-length research papers that are original and have not been submitted elsewhere. Also, we require that any and all contributions of institutions and/or individuals to the submitted work be clearly stated in the paper. Any cases of ghostwriting or guest authorship will be disclosed and properly reported.
License to publish
The authors must sign the license to publish upon paper acceptance. The license governs in detail the commercial and non-commercial use of papers published by our journal, and determines user and author rights.
As of 2015, all authors are expected to pay page charges, which cover the costs of the publishing process and will be invoiced upon paper acceptance. Note that we charge for papers of the required length (8-12 pages) and additionally apply excess page charges (13+ pages). The current fees (per page) are given below:
One sample copy of the journal and the electronic version of the paper are provided for authors once the issue has been published.
