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 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; infinitely many twin primes)
or a major result such as Fermat's last theorem
must be accompanied by a letter written
by a Ph. D. mathematician at a university, stating that he/she has read
the paper and endorses it.
If you do not receive an acknowledgment from us within one
week, then we have not received your paper.
