The Editorial Process

To speed up publication, and to ensure a unified layout throughout the journal, we require the use of LATEX.

Preparation of Manuscripts

The manuscript should be written in LATEX. It must include a title, the author’s name(s), an abstract, and the keywords. The 2000 Mathematics Subject Classification codes should be added, if applicable. Pictures should not be in color, their resolution should be at least 300 dpi, and all used fonts must be embedded.

All authors should give their complete addresses along with an e-mail address, if applicable. Please note that we cannot accept electronic files produced on any other typesetting or word processing system.

Class File

To simplify the transformation process between your documents and the final layout, we provide the LATEX class file birkjour.cls ready for use with the newer LATEX versions (LATEX2e) which can be downloaded from the web page

http://www.birkhauser-science.com/math/downloads

as a small zip file, birkjour.zip (see also link here below).

Then, the first line in your document should be

\documentclass{birkjour}

The class file mainly sets the fonts, margins and spacing. It is based on the standard AMSart class. Hence all of the usual LATEX and AMS-LATEX commands can be used inside your document. A small sample file containing a short documentation and being useful as template is also provided in the zip file. The authors are highly recommended not to modify the class file by introducing personal settings and/or definitions.

English Language Editing

For editors and reviewers to accurately assess the work presented in your manuscript you need to ensure the English language is of sufficient quality to be understood. If you need help with writing in English you should consider:

  • Asking a colleague who is a native English speaker to review your manuscript for clarity.
  • Visiting the English language tutorial which covers the common mistakes when writing in English.
  • Using a professional language editing service where editors will improve the English to ensure that your meaning is clear and identify problems that require your review. Two such services are provided by our affiliates Nature Research Editing Service and American Journal Experts. Springer authors are entitled to a 10% discount on their first submission to either of these services, simply follow the links below.
