Manuscripts should be sent by e-mail to the editorial office
in Budapest firstname.lastname@example.org
preferably in PDF format, but submissions in other formats, like
PostScript, are also possible.
Short notes are welcome, we process them separately.
In order to facilitate refereeing, copies of those papers (whether by the
author or someone else), which are essentially referred to and are not
conveniently accessible, should also be sent by e-mail to the
Form of Manuscript
- The length of the paper should not exceed 25 pages
(in 11-point LaTeX format on US letter-size paper with 1-inch margins).
Authors of longer papers are advised to submit a 25-page version
to Combinatorica with a link to a full version on arXiv.
- In a paper divided into sections, it is desirable to number theorems, lemmas, definitions,
corollaries, examples, etc. consecutively using double Arabic numerals. (E.g., Section 3 may start
with Definition 3.1 followed by Remark 3.2 and Theorem 3.3).
- Mark the end of proof by . The same symbol, placed at the end of a statement, indicates
the absence of proof.
In the e-mail with the submission,
please include the following:
- Title of the article.
- Name(s) of the author(s).
- E-mail of the author responsible for correspondence
The manuscript should be accompanied by a brief abstract. Bear in mind that this
might be the only part of the paper read by most of the readers.
Clarity of the presentation is paramount. The results should be made
accessible to the nonspecialist reader. Authors should give
clear motivation, background, exact references, and all definitions which are not generally known.
If the paper is accepted, the following should be submitted:
- The final of the paper in TeX, LaTeX or AMS-TeX format, with
a separate file for each figure in Encapsulated Postcript (eps)
format. It is best to avoid complicated macros; our typesetter will
convert the files to produce the format of the journal, and this is
easiest and safest to do from a "vanilla" version.
- Affiliation(s) and e-mail address(es) of the author(s).
- An abbreviated form of the title (at most 35 characters), to be
used as the running head.
- Mathematics Subject Classification codes (primary and secondary).
The classifications are listed in the annual Index of the
Mathematical Reviews and on the web site of
the American Mathematical Society.
