Initial Submission for Peer Review
All articles submitted to this journal are peer-reviewed. The AMS has a single blind peer-review process in which the reviewers know who the authors of the manuscript are, but the authors do not have access to the information on who the peer reviewers are. The AMS uses Centralized Manuscript Processing for initial submissions to AMS journals. The preferred method of submission is to upload a PDF file using the Initial Manuscript Submission form.
An alternate method is to send one copy of the paper to the following address:
