Author Guidelines

  • DMTCS covers Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science as domain of interest.
  • DMTCS is a scientific journal. This requires that your work is
    original
    The main results of your paper must not have appeared elsewhere in a journal, neither by yourself nor by somebody else.
    There is no excuse for plagiarism, not even self-plagiarism. We have a good record in tracking such things down, be warned.
    important
    Your results must be of importance to a wider public and should be of interest for more readers than just the referees.
    self contained
    Other than for conference proceedings, we don't have any restrictions on the number of pages for an article. So there is no excuse to suppress proofs or not to give verbose examples. On the other hand, self contained short notes are highly welcome.
    complete
    Your work must relate to the current state of the art of the domain in question. In particular, foreign and own results external to the manuscript must be correctly credited and complete reference to such related work must be given.
    legible
    The journal's language is English, all conventions for scientific work in that language apply.
    correct
    Your work must be mathematical correct and its quality of writing must be such that the referees will agree upon this fact.
    Your writing must be grammatically correct. Be ensured, that especially authors that are non-native speakers of English will receive all possible help to correct flaws. But also have in mind, that incorrect grammar might be the cause of severe misunderstandings and finally result in a rejection of the paper.
  • DMTCS is
    no
    circular letter, and
    no
    preprint server.
    If you are looking for that, please consider the wide possibilities that the web offers nowadays.
