Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems - S

Submit an article

Manuscripts should be in English and submitted online in pdf format. One or two editors whose areas are closely related to the paper should be selected in the submission process. Articles may not fit the journal well if no proper editors can be selected.

Line Numbers If your document was prepared using LaTeX, please add \usepackage[pagewise]{lineno}\linenumbers to the preamble, as a courtesy to referees who may wish to provide detailed feedback.

Citations (1) Each citation and reference in your manuscript must play an essential role.  (2) An explanation for each reference must be clearly integrated into the narrative of your manuscript.  (3) Do not cite any reference if your paper is not affected without it.

Submission of a manuscript is a representation that the work has not been previously published, has not been copyrighted, is not being submitted for publication elsewhere, and that its submission has been approved by all of the authors and by the institution where the work was carried out. Furthermore, submission indicates that any person cited as a source of personal communications has approved such citation, and that the authors have agreed that the copyright in the article shall be assigned to the publisher upon acceptance of the article.

Manuscripts style:Number each page. Page 1 should contain the title, authors names and complete affiliations. Place any footnotes to the title at the bottom of Page 1. Each paper requires an abstract not exceeding 200 words. AMS subject classifications and some key words must accompany all articles and must be placed at the bottom of Page 1. E-mail addresses of all authors should be placed at the end of the paper. Each paper requires a running head (abbreviated form of the title) of no more than 40 characters. Titles should be concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems, so they should not contain abbreviations and formulae. Abstracts should be concise and factual, which state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors. You should take particular care to ensure that the information is correct so that links to referenced articles can be made successfully. Material which is really a footnote to the text should not be included in the reference list, which should contain only references to bibliographic data. Avoid any references that are not fully cited in the paper.

Equations should be centered with the number placed in parentheses at the right margin.

Figures must be of high resolution and high contrast.

References should be listed alphabetically, typed and punctuated according to the following examples: 
1.   S. N. Chow and J. K. Hale, "Methods of Bifurcation Theory," Springer-Verlag, New York, 1982.
2.   J. Serrin, Gradient estimates for solutions of nonlinear elliptic and parabolic equations, in "Contributions to Nonlinear Functional Analysis" (ed. E.H. Zarantonello), Academic Press (1971). 
3.   S. Smale, Stable manifolds for differential equations and diffeomorphisms, Ann. Scuola Norm. Sup. Pisa Cl. Sci., 18 (1963), 97--116.

When citing "Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems" and "Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems Series B," the abbreviated form of "Discrete Contin. Dyn. Syst." and "Discrete Contin. Dyn. Syst. Ser. B," respectively, may be used instead. For journal abbreviations used in bibliographies, consult the list of serials in the latest Mathematical Reviews annual index.

Manuscripts typeset using AmS-LaTeX (amsart) can move much more quickly through the production process, hence are strongly recommended to authors for preparing their manuscripts.

Proofs We will contact you by e-mail when the PDF proof of your article is ready. When your manuscript is received by AIMS it is considered to be in its final form. Proofs are not to be regarded as 'drafts.'

Reprints The journal does not offer reprints.

AIMS now offers Gold Open Access publication under our Read and Publish agreement. Please check with your institution to see if you qualify. You may encourage your institution to sign up for this agreement so that you and your colleagues can publish in any AIMS hybrid journal Open Access, but free of charge. For more information, see

At AIMS, we do everything we can to have your article reach as many interested readers as possible, and we encourage authors to do the same. Please consider sharing a link to your article on relevant social media such as ResearchGate and LinkedIn.
