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.
Please note that the use of a language editing service is not a requirement for publication in this journal and does not imply or guarantee that the article will be selected for peer review or accepted.
If your manuscript is accepted it will be checked by our copyeditors for spelling and formal style before publication.


● 请一位以英语为母语的同事审核您的稿件是否表意清晰。
● 查看一些有关英语写作中常见语言错误的教程。
● 使用专业语言编辑服务,编辑人员会对英语进行润色,以确保您的意思表达清晰,并识别需要您复核的问题。我们的附属机构 Nature Research Editing Service 和合作伙伴 American Journal Experts 即可提供此类服务。


・プロの英文校正サービスを利用する。校正者が原稿の意味を明確にしたり、問題点を指摘し、英語の質を向上させます。Nature Research Editing Service とAmerican Journal Experts の2つは弊社と提携しているサービスです。Springer の著者は、いずれのサービスも初めて利用する際には10%の割引を受けることができます。以下のリンクを参照ください。


영어 원고의 경우, 에디터 및 리뷰어들이 귀하의 원고에 실린 결과물을 정확하게 평가할 수 있도록, 그들이 충분히 이해할 수 있을 만한 수준으로 작성되어야 합니다. 만약 영작문과 관련하여 도움을 받기를 원하신다면 다음의 사항들을 고려하여 주십시오:
• 귀하의 원고의 표현을 명확히 해줄 영어 원어민 동료를 찾아서 리뷰를 의뢰합니다.
• 영어 튜토리얼 페이지에 방문하여 영어로 글을 쓸 때 자주하는 실수들을 확인합니다.
• 리뷰에 대비하여, 원고의 의미를 명확하게 해주고 리뷰에서 요구하는 문제점들을 식별해서 영문 수준을 향상시켜주는 전문 영문 교정 서비스를 이용합니다. Nature Research Editing Service와 American Journal Experts에서 저희와 협약을 통해 서비스를 제공하고 있습니다. Springer 저자들이 본 교정 서비스를 첫 논문 투고를 위해 사용하시는 경우 10%의 할인이 적용되며, 아래의 링크를 통하여 확인이 가능합니다.
영문 교정 서비스는 게재를 위한 요구사항은 아니며, 해당 서비스의 이용이 피어 리뷰에 논문이 선택되거나 게재가 수락되는 것을 의미하거나 보장하지 않습니다.
원고가 수락될 경우, 출판 전 저희측 편집자에 의해 원고의 철자 및 문체를 검수하는 과정을 거치게 됩니다.


Papers which have been published or submitted for publication elsewhere are not acceptable.
English language is preferred, but German and French are also accepted.
Every manuscript considered for publication is passed to a referee for a peer review, and then it
is subject to final approval by the Editorial Board.
The manuscripts must be in their final form, changes at the proof stage will be considered only
The structure of the manuscript should be as follows:
• Title of the paper
• Author's name and city
• Abstract (not exceeding 12 lines; references in the abstract should be given in full form,
e.g. V. Nov\'ak, M. Novotn\'y: Linear extensions of orderings. Czech. Math. J. 50 (2000),
• Keywords
• Mathematics Subject Classification 2010 (see Zentralblatt MATH or AMS)
• Text of the paper
• References with coordinates from the database Zentralblatt MATH
• Author's complete address (possibly also the e-mail address). In case of several authors,
the address for correspondence should be indicated.
References should be listed in the following form:
[1] \v S. Schwabik, I. Vrko\v c: On Kurzweil-Henstock equiintegrable sequences. Math. Bohem.
121 (1996), 189--207. Zbl 0863.26009
[2] R. A. Gordon: The Integrals of Lebesgue, Denjoy, Perron and Henstock. Graduate Studies in
Math., Vol. 4, AMS, Providence, 1994. Zbl 0807.26004
For abbreviations of names of serials see Zentralblatt MATH. References in the text should be
quoted by the corresponding number in brackets, e.g. [1].
The Editorial Office encourages electronic submission of manuscripts. The authors can submit
their papers in PDF, DVI, PostScript, LaTeX, AmSTeX, or Plain TeX formats. After the paper is
accepted, the author(s) are asked to provide the paper in LaTeX, AmSTeX, or Plain TeX format
together with all accompanying files. Included should be all necessary macros which are not part
of the standard TeX formats. Avoid using excessive user-defined macros. In particular, abstracts should contain no user-defined macros at all. E-mail, CD-ROM, or diskette submissions are
The Editors cannot be held responsible for possible loss of the manuscript, therefore the authors
should keep a copy of all files sent to the Editorial Office.
To expedite the processing of their manuscripts, the authors are asked to download the TeX style
file (http://math.cas.cz/IMjournal.sty) and use the template file
(http://math.cas.cz/IMjournal.template). These files should be used in preparing manuscripts for
any of the three journals published by the Institute.
The style file expects the widely used document class amsart:
as shown in the template file. Other AMS-style files can be included provided IMjournal is
included as the last item.
We believe that the template file is fairly self-explanatory. Nevertheless, we consider it useful to
highlight the delimiters it uses. For instance, see the following template
\author{\|FirstName |Surname|, Town,
\|SecondAuthorFirstName |SecondAuthorSurname|, OtherTown, ...}
It is designed to properly typeset the name of the author(s) as in many cases it is uneasy to
determine which part of the name is to be considered as author's surname.
Even if the title is typeset in uppercase, please do not use explicit uppercase text: it is easy to
convert lowercase to uppercase correctly, the opposite is not the case.
The same holds for text typeset in small capitals.
Also notice that displayed formulas are tagged on the left-hand side; if possible, avoid mixing
them with list items.
Figures must be either sent in an electronic form preferably as *.EPS files or drawn clearly in black Indian ink (suitable for scanning and reproduction). If a figure is based on graphed data and prepared in a non-standard way, then the relevant dataset should also be included in the
electronic submission of the accepted manuscript.
For non-electronic submissions, papers should be sent in two copies to the Editorial Office.
Manuscripts should be printed (with usual size of types), double-spaced, on one side of sheets
(A4 size). Mathematical formulas must be clearly readable.
The desired position of figures should be clearly indicated in pencil on the margin of the manuscript.
For any further information concerning the preparation of manuscripts, please feel free to contact
the Editor (applmath@math.cas.cz, czemathj@math.cas.cz, mathboh@math.cas.cz).

    Aims and Scope


    Applications of Mathematics publishes original research papers of high scientific level that are directed towards the use of mathematics in different branches of science. The emphasis of the papers is on a solid mathematical analysis of problems from applications, in the form of proofs of mathematical theorems that are typically of more general use than only for the application under consideration. The journal publishes theorems on solutions to (partial) differential, integral, algebraic and stochastic equations, such as their well-posedness, their relevant properties, and their (numerical) approximation. Also papers on variational (in-)equalities, optimization and probability and statistics are welcomed. All contributions should be well motivated by real-life applications from scientific areas such as engineering, physics, econometrics, and biology.
