Title page. The title page should start with the title of the article, authors' names (no degrees). It should contain Keywords (no more than 10), Subject Classification (AMS Mathematics Subject Classification (2010) with primary (and secondary) subject classification codes), and Abstract (no more than 150 words with minimal use of mathematical symbols).
Figures. Figures should be prepared in a digital form suitable for direct reproduction.
References. Bibliografical references should be listed alphabetically at the end of the article. The authors should consult Mathematical Review for standard abbreviations of journals' names.
Authors' data. The authors' affiliations, addresses and e-mail adresses should be placed after References.
Proofs. The authors will receive proofs only once. Late return of proofs may result in publishing a paper in a later issue.
Offprints. The authors will receive offprints in the electronic form.
The procedure of reviewing a manuscript, established by the Editorial Board of the
Eurasian Mathematical Journal
1. Reviewing procedure
1.1. All research papers received by the Eurasian Mathematical Journal (EMJ) are subject to mandatory reviewing.
1.2. The Managing Editor of the journal determines whether a paper fits to the scope of the EMJ and satisfies the rules of writing papers for the EMJ, and directs it for a preliminary review to the Editor-in-chief who checks the scientific content of the manuscript and assigns a specialist for reviewing the manuscript.
1.3. Reviewers of manuscripts are selected from highly qualified scientists and specialists of the L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University (Doctors of Sciences, professors), other universities of Kazakhstan and foreign countries. An author of a paper cannot be its reviewer.
1.4. Duration of reviewing in each case is determined by the Managing Editor aiming at creating conditions for the most rapid publication of the paper.
1.5. Reviewing is confidential. Information about a reviewer is anonymous to the authors and is available only for the Editorial Board and Committee for Control of Education and Science (CCES). The author has the right to read the text of the review.
1.6. If required, the review is sent to the author by e-mail.
1.7. A positive review is not a sufficient basis for publication of the paper.
1.8. If a reviewer overall approves the paper, but has observations, the review is confidentially sent to the author. A revised version of the paper in which the comments of the reviewer are taken into account is sent to the same reviewer for additional reviewing.
1.9. In the case of a negative review the text of the review is confidentially sent to the author.
1.10. If the author sends a well reasoned response to the comments of the reviewer, the paper should be considered by a commission, consisting of three members of the Editorial Board.
1.11. The final decision on publication of the paper is made by the Editorial Board and is recorded in the minutes of the meeting of the Editorial Board.
1.12. After the paper is accepted for publication by the Editorial Board the Managing Editor informs the author about this and about the date of publication.
1.13. Originals reviews are stored in the Editorial Office for three years from the date of publication and are provided on request of CCES .
1.14. No fee for reviewing papers will be charged.
2. Requirements for the content of a review
2.1. In the title of a review there should be indicated the author(s) and the title of a paper.
2.2. A review should include a qualified analysis of the material of a paper, objective assessment and reasoned recommendations.
2.3. A review should cover the following topics:
- compliance of the paper with the scope of the EMJ;
- compliance of the title of the paper to its content;
- compliance of the paper to the rules of writing papers for the EMJ (abstract, key words and phrases, bibliography etc);
- a general description and assessment of the content of the paper (subject, focus, actuality of the topic, importance and actuality of the obtained results, possible applications);
- content of the paper (the originality of the material, survey of previously published studies on the topic of the paper, erroneous statements (if any), controversial issues (if any), and so on);
- exposition of the paper (clarity, conciseness, completeness of proofs, completeness of bibliographic references, typographical quality of the text);
- possibility of reducing the volume of the paper, without harming the content and understanding of the presented scientific results;
- description of positive aspects of the paper, as well as of drawbacks, recommendations for corrections and complements to the text.
2.4. The final part of the review should contain an overall opinion of a reviewer on the paper and a clear recommendation on whether the paper can be published in the Eurasian Mathematical Journal, should be sent back to the author for revision or cannot be published.
