If there are accompanying style files or diagrams, please be sure to include them. Diagrams should be prepared in .ps (postscript) or .eps format, not pdf or other formats. The subject line of your email message should read "Submission to the Journal of Integer Sequences". (Any other header is in danger of being discarded by a spam filter.) If there are multiple files, please consider sending them as a Unix tar or zip file. Be sure that your submission latex'es properly with no errors or warning messages. Check the log files before submission.
Authors may want to suggest two or three names of possible referees.
We regret that we cannot handle submissions in Microsoft Word or Word Perfect formats. Submissions must be in English.
Note to submitters from China: e-mail from many servers in China, such as 163.com, is typically marked as spam. Please try submitting from a different e-mail address, such as gmail.com.
Any submission claiming to solve a significant open problem (e.g., Goldbach's conjecture; Beal's conjecture; infinitely many twin primes; Riemann hypothesis) or a major result such as Fermat's last theorem must be preceded by a physical letter (not e-mail) written and signed by a Ph. D. mathematician, other than one of the authors, with an appointment at a university, on the letterhead of that university, and sent through ordinary postal mail, stating that he/she has read the paper and endorses it.
We do not read e-mail every day. If you do not receive an acknowledgment from us within ten days, then we have not received your paper.
Therefore, publishing a paper in JIS requires a higher standard of manuscript preparation than many other journals, which have a large editorial staff to fix problems. We ask that you read our style guide with care and make a real effort to make your paper conform. This also means that if you are not a native English speaker, you will want to find a native English speaker to proofread your paper.
By submitting you agree to follow the guidelines in our LaTeX style guide in the final version of your paper:
By publishing a paper in the Journal, authors grant the Journal a perpetual, royalty-free license to publish this paper in any collection of Journal papers in any form. Authors retain the copyright of their submitted papers. Authors may, of course, submit their paper to the Arxiv or any other preprint archive.
