Instructions to Authors

The papers to be submitted to the Journal of The Indian Mathematical Society (JIMS) must be typed using LaTeX format and a Pdf copy of the paper must be submitted online at:

However, once a paper is accepted for publication, the author(s) will be asked to submit the Latex file along with files of all the figures and diagrams as well as the pdf file of their accepted paper. Use of the following LaTeX preamble is recommended

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper,twoside, reqno, tbtags]{amsart}

\usepackages{amsfonts, amssymb, amscd, amsmath, enumerate, verbatim}









Sections should appear in the following order : Title Page, Abstract, Text, Notes and References.

Title Page:

The Title page should include the manuscript title, authors’ names affiliations. The author, who submits the paper will be considered as the corresponding author and all the correspondence (including pdf reprint of accepted papers) will be made with him The Title should be precise and concise.

The text of the manuscript be divided in sections using LaTeX command \section{}, with introduction as section 1. The definitions/Theorems/Lemmas/ equations etc. should be numbered consecutively section wise using the command


Only relevant and significant references should be provided. Unnecessary references should be avoided. Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the Authors. References in the body of the text should be in cross-reference style ((\cite{}) mode in LaTeX). Example: “… as mentioned in (\cite{}, \cite{}), Ramanujan (\cite{}) obtained the following result …”. references In the list at the end should be in alphabetical order of last name (not initials) and should be in bibliographic cross references mode/style.

Illustration Style: Originals for illustrations should be sharp and of good contrast. Each Figure and Table should be mentioned in the text and numbered consecutively using Hindu-Arabic numerals. For each Figure and Table, its desired location in the text should be clearly specified. Each Figure and Table must have a caption. Example of proper style for captions : “Figure 1” or “Table 1”. Preferred formats for drawing figures are TIKZ AND PSTRICTS. However, EPS, JPG, PDF, PS formats are also accepted.
