Guide for Authors

Thank you for your interest in Journal of Mathematics and Modeling in Finance (JMMF). These instructions will help you prepare your paper and ensure a smooth editorial process. Please take the time to read and follow them as closely as possible, as doing so will ensure your paper matches the journal's requirements.

Please note that this journal only publishes manuscripts in English and all submissions to the JMMF should be made online at the‎ ‎journal official website. ‎New users should first create an‎ ‎account‎. ‎Once a user is logged on to the site submissions should be made via the Author Centre‎.‎

• This style file is for authors who are preparing papers for the JMMF using the LaTex document preparation system and the Class file amsart.cls. The JMMF is an author-prepared journal which means that authors are responsible for the proper formatting of accepted manuscripts by using the style file of the JMMF. ‎Papers prepared in Word files *.doc or out of the style of the JMMF will not be‎ ‎considered‎.

• Thus while you are preparing your paper, please download the template LaTeX manuscript style files (JMMF-sample-file.zip) and take care of the following:

15. References 

The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.

References should be listed in the alphabetical order according to the surnames of the first author at the end of the paper and should be cited in the text as described in 15.1.

 

15.1 In-text citations

 The in-text citation should consist of the author's name and year of publication [e.g., “according to Turing1995,” or “as shown by an earlier study Turing 1995”].

• When there are two or more papers by the same author in the same year, the distinguishing suffix (a, b, etc.) should be added.

If the citation is for a reference with two authors, use both author names [e.g., Neisy and Salmani 2013].

References with three or more authors are always cited as the first author's name followed by "et al." [e.g., De Marchi et al. 2018].

 

15.2 Dataset citations

• Citing dataset references in text

The in-text citations for dataset references should be formatted the same as other publication types, using the author’s name and year of publication [e.g., “dataset produced by Knutti (2014),” or “as shown by an earlier dataset (Knutti 2014)”]. Read more
