Instructions to Authors

All topics related to differential equations and their applications (ODE's, PDE's, integral equations, functional differential equations, etc.) will be considered for publication. Research articles must contain correct, new, and nontrivial results. Please emphasize what ideas, methods, or results are new in your manuscript. Articles will be refereed under the same standards used by the printed journals.

Proceedings of conferences are accepted by the conference editors who will arrange their publication with the EJDE editors. Long expository papers and textbooks are accepted as monographs at the discretion of a special issue editors.

Authors should write their manuscripts in English. We recommend following the guidelines "How to write mathematics" published by Paul Halmos, Enseignement Math. (2) 16 1970 123--152. Please

Manuscript should be formatted as LaTeX files. AMS-TeX and plain TeX files may be submitted. However, once the manuscript is accepted, it will be formated as AMS-LaTeX file and the author may be asked to help with the reformatting.
Please keep the number of macros (\def, \newcommand) to the minimum possible, please use standard TeX macros rather than your personal macros (i.e., use \omega instead of \om).

Graphics can be included as PNG or JPG or PDF or EPS files. Also using the picture environment in LaTeX. From the main document input figures through the commands \usepackage{graphicx} \includegraphics{fig1} . Please do not use PSFRAG, because pdflatex does not recognize its commands.

The references in the bibliography, should be listed in alphabetical order. Also co-authors will be listed in alphabetical order, unless there is some other agreement with the editors.

In order to aid in dissemination, please include the following: Mathematics Subject Classification numbers, key words, author's e-mail address, and an abstract no longer than twelve lines. Since the abstract is going to be sent as an e-mail message, whenever possible use words rather than symbols.

Please submit the PDF and Latex files of your manuscript electronically to an EJDE editor who has worked in the topic of the manuscript. Please submit your manuscript TO ONLY ONE editor. If we do not confirm that your manuscript was received (within two weeks), please send it again.

Submitting a manuscript is representation by the author that the manuscript has not been copyrighted, published, or submitted elsewhere. If the paper appeared in a preliminary form in a conference proceedings, etc., this must be clearly indicated in a footnote on the title page.

Following a favorable referee's report, the manuscript will be accepted and modified to agree with our journal style. The authors will be asked to proofread the final version before posting the article.

The authors will be asked to send photograph(s) to be displayed with the abstract. Photographs can be scanned to create a JPG file, and then sent to the managing editor. Authors may also mail a paper photograph to the managing editors, who will scan the photo.

Once articles have been published by the EJDE, no further alteration will be allowed. However, authors may provide additional information by setting pointers to their web pages, or by attaching addenda/corrigenda to their articles.
