The author(s) are required to submit their manuscripts by sending an e-mail, including a cover letter to the Editorial Board, and PDF file of the manuscript compatible with the TeX style of MTJPAM, to the following e-mail address: mtjpamath@gmail.com.

During the preparation of the manuscript, the authors must also follow the items stated in CHECKLIST which summarizes both the publication policy and the writing rules of our journal.

To summarize, some basic information that should definitely be included on the first page of the article are listed below:

  1. The first page should contain the full title in sentence case (namely involving capitalizing only the first word and any proper nouns).
    • The title of the manuscript must be concise, descriptive and informative.
    • The title do not include special mathematical symbols and characters.
  2. All authors’ full names and surnames (without any abbreviation) must be given separately.
    • The corresponding author must be specified.
    • If the manuscript was prepared jointly with different authors, Corresponding Author is responsible for ensuring that each author is informed about all other forms, correspondence, interviews.
    • All authors have seen and approved the manuscript as submitted.
    • Affiliation, mailing address, and e-mail addresses of each author should be included into the manuscript.
    • If any, the ORCID iDs of all authors should also be inserted into the manuscript, or the cover letter.
  3. The abstract should be written to include the main purpose, results, motivation and method of the article and should not exceed 300 words. In other words, the abstract should be organized to stay in the first page of the manuscript.
  4. 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC2010) numbers, involving the annual index associated with MathSciNet/Mathematical Reviews and Zentralblatt MATH (zbMATH). (see: https://mathscinet.ams.org/mathscinet/msc/msc2020.html).
  5. At most 8 and at least 2 keywords and/or phrases.

Other rules to be followed throughout the article are listed below:

  1. Figures and graphics, if included, should be prepared suitable for photographic reproduction.
  2. The MTJPAM prefers graphics produced electronically and compiled in the EPS format.
  3. All authors may express their thanks for the financial support and etc. in the section “Acknowledgments”.
    • The authors must write author contributions in the section “Author Contributions”.
    • If available, the authors may write the conflicts of interest in the section “Conflicts of Interest”. All authors should disclose any conflict of interest that may have influenced either the conduct or the presentation of the research.
    • In the section “Funding (Financial Disclosure)”, names of funding organizations should be written in full (if available).
  4. The items in the reference section should be ordered according to the alphabetical order of the family names of the authors and numbered numerically as [1], [2], …
    • In the references list, during arranging the form of the references, the journal’s abbreviations must be organized compatible with the list entitled “Abbreviations of Names of Serials” published by MathSciNetAmerican Mathematical Society (see: https://mathscinet.ams.org/msnhtml/serials.pdf). If there is no abbreviation of the relevant journal in the list, you can write the abbreviations announced on the web page of the relevant journal.
    • The citations should be given via “\cite{label}” command during the preparation of LaTeX file, not given in square brackets manually.
  5. Manuscripts that are not prepared using the TeX style of the journal will not be considered for publication. Thus, manuscripts must be prepared and submitted in PDF format which is prepared compatible with the TeX style of the journal. (The authors may download the TeX style here).
  6.

Corresponding Authorship

Our recommendation, but not necessarily, the Montes Taurus Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics require to list authors’ surnames in alphabetical order. The use of alphabetical authorship is most common in mathematics. By the unique nature of mathematics, the MTJPAM does not consider the concept of the first author in mathematical papers, and the MTJPAM does not infer about the relative contribution made by the different authors of a publication.

In addition, the selection of corresponding author will be taken into consideration directly in the manuscript.

Assigning the article’s registration number and Reviewing Process

Assigning the article’s registration number:

As soon as the article is submitted to our journal with the title of the article and the cover letter including the authors, it is put into pre-evaluation. The article is examined and evaluated in terms of form and content by the relevant editors. After this result is approved by the editor-in-chief, the registration number of the article is assigned by the journal secretary to the article that seems appropriate within 1 week at the latest. This registration number is also notified to the author. After that, the editor of the article is appointed, and the peer review process begins.

On the other hand, articles that do not seem suitable are immediately directed to the author or sent back to the authors in the effort to make the necessary corrections and additions. It may be suggested to send the article again in accordance with the journal.

As for Reviewing Process:

(1) The article is sent to at least two Reviewers. The period given to the Reviewers is 75 days.
(2) After reviews from Reviewers are submitted their reports, the Managing Editor will make a final decision involving accepted for publication, minor revision, major revision and rejection. After that the corresponding author, but also all the author will be notified by email of Editor-in-Chief.
(3) Furthermore, papers approved for publication will be analyzed on the rules of Research Ethics, after which the author will also be notified.

As for peer review process;

MTJPAM is a single-blind refereed journal. Namely, MTJPAM follows one of the most widely used traditional review process. In this type of review, the names of the referees are absolutely hidden from the author.

Therefore, the reviewers consider the following important statements while following single anonymized review:

  • MTJPAM ask the reviewers for a scientific review report written without adding their name inside of their report.
  • Since the referee knows that he/she is anonymous, he/she can review impartially and therefore, he/she will not be affected by the authors in his/her decision.
  • Authors may feel that reviewers in their field may delay publication. However, by sending their reports to the journal within 75 days at the latest, the referees will not have given the authors such a feeling of concern.
  • Reviewers must not use their anonymity as a justification for being unnecessarily critical or harsh when commenting on authors’ work, and should write more scientifically based reports.
  • Proofs
    There are two procedures for accepted manuscripts:

    The first procedure: As soon as the accepted article is notified to the author, it is immediately added to the list of ACCEPTED PAPERS along with the article’s ID number.

    The second procedure: In order to prepare the galley proof of accepted articles for publication, authors must submit LaTeX files written in the style of the MTJPAM and Copyright Release Form signed by the corresponding author. After the next process is prepared galley proof by the Publishing Editor, and the Technical Editor. After that the authors will receive only one galley proof for correction. No modification or corrections beyond corrections on minor typographical errors, and mistyping variables will generally be accepted once the galley proof is issue.  Authors will be asked to do them by giving 2 days (48 hours).

    As soon as the galley proof will be received from the author, it is immediately added to the IN PRESS list along with the article’s ID number.

    After the paper being added to the IN PRESS list, its authors are informed by an email including the link and PDF file of the paper, and after keeping the paper in the IN PRESS list (for possible extra corrections) for 7 days, the latest version of the paper is published by assigning to the forthcoming issue. No corrections can be made on the paper added to the forthcoming issue list.
