Instructions for the editorial board

The associate editor interested in publishing a special issue should send a proposal to the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal Matemática Contemporânea. This proposal should contain the topic, members of the editorial committee and a list of potential submissions for this special issue. The associate editor should also be committed to the entire peer-review process of the special issue. 

After the initial approval by part of the editorial board of the Journal Matemática Contemporânea, the special issue gets under the responsibility of the associate editor of the special issue and its editorial committee, which will evaluate all the contributions, deciding if it is suitable for publication at the journal Matemática Contemporânea. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of one independent expert reviewer to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The associate editor of the special issue and its editorial committee are responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of the articles. 

All accepted articles with their respective reports and the Term of Consent to Publish and Copyright Transfer Agreement (pdf / doc) signed by each author should be submitted to the editorial board of the Journal Matemática Contemporânea for their publication. 

Instructions for the authors
