Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted by sending an email (including a cover letter to one of the guest editors, PDF and TeX files of manuscript) to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manuscripts may also be submitted by sending an email to the email address of the guest editors. While submitting your manuscript, do not forget to notify the guest editor by a cover letter which states that your manuscript is for the special Issue: “Dedicated to Professor Themistocles M. Rassias on the occasion of his 70th Birthday” of Montes Taurus Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics (ISSN 2687-4814).
Manuscripts must be compatible with the TeX style of the journal. The authors may download TeX style here.
Remark that the following sentence: “This paper is dedicated to Professor Themistocles M. Rassias on the occasion of his 70th Birthday.” must be inserted in the “Acknowledgements” section of the manuscript.
All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 300 words, see also (FOR AUTHORS section)) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on
The Montes Taurus Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics is published at least twice a year and also this journal is free of charge (For details, see: https://mtjpamjournal.com/). Consequently, this special issue will be published as a 3rd issue regardless of the regular issues of our journal.
