A new version of the KJM article style has been released, starting from 18th January 2016 all submissions should be prepared using the new template.

Kragujevac Journal of Mathematics is an international journal devoted to research concerning all aspects of mathematics. Requirements for acceptance of papers include originality, scientific significance and clarity of presentation.
Submissions are accepted with the understanding that the article is the original work of the authors and that the same, or a substantially similar paper, has not been published, nor is under consideration for publication, in another journal.
When preparing the manuscript, please read the following instructions.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Submission declaration

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis or as an electronic preprint, see KJM policy), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere including electronically in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the copyright-holder.

Authorship

All authors should have made substantial contributions to all of the following: (1) the conception and design of the study, or acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data, (2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content, (3) final approval of the version to be submitted.

Changes to authorship

This policy concerns the addition, deletion, or rearrangement of author names in the authorship of accepted manuscripts.
Before the accepted manuscript is published online: Requests to add or remove an author, or to rearrange the author names, must be sent to the Journal Editor from the corresponding author of the accepted manuscript and must include: (a) the reason for the change to the list of authors and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, fax, letter) from all authors stating that they agree with the addition, removal or rearrangement. In the case of addition or removal of authors, this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed.
After the accepted manuscript is published online: Any requests to add, delete, or rearrange author names in an article published online are not possible.


PREPARATION

Language

Please write your paper in good English. American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these.

Latex

It is necessary that your manuscript is prepared in TeX or LaTeX. Also, all figures used in the manuscript have to be uploaded as separate EPS or PDF files.

You should use the KJM article class kjm.cls  to prepare your manuscript.  Also, a template for the Kragujevac Journal of Mathematics is available here.

References need to be in KJM style (see below ).
We recommend to use the KJM BibTeX style to generate your bibliography.

FORMATTING REQUIREMENTS

All manuscripts should contain the essential elements needed to convey your manuscript, for example Abstract, Keywords, Classification Codes, Introduction, Results, Conclusions and References. If your article includes any videos and/or other supplementary material, this should be included in your initial submission for peer review purposes.
Divide the article into clearly defined sections.

Article structure

You are recommended to use the template of the Kragujevac Journal of Mathematics available from template, when preparing your manuscript; this will ensure that your article satisfies the journal’s style requirements.

Subdivision - numbered sections

Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2,…), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.

Figures

Please ensure that the figures included in the single file are placed next to the relevant text in the manuscript. Figures need to be in EPS or PDF format and uploaded when submitting the article.

Figure captions

Ensure that each illustration (figure) has a caption. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration.

Essential title page information:

• Title. Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems;
• Author names and affiliations Provide the full postal address of each author’s affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author;
• Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing, publication, and post-publication. Contact details must be kept up to date by the corresponding author.

Abstract

A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone.

Keywords

Provide a maximum of 6 keywords. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.


Classification Codes

Please provide classification codes as per the standard AMS codes. A full list and information for these can be found at http://www.ams.org/msc.

Acknowledgements

Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.). This section should not be numbered.

Math formule

Please submit math equations as editable text and not as images.


Footnotes

Footnotes should be used sparingly. Number them consecutively throughout the article.

Tables

Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed either next to the relevant text in the article, or on separate page(s) at the end. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Please ensure that each table has a caption.

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.

Always use the standard abbreviation of a journal’s name according to the ISSN List of Title Word
Abbreviations, see ISSN.org LTWA

Citation in text

Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full.
Text: Indicate references by number(s) in square brackets in line with the text. The actual authors can be referred to, but the reference number(s) must always be given.
Example: '(…) as demonstrated [1,15]. James and Jones [3] obtained a different result (…)'

 

Reference style

You are recommended to use the KJM BibTeX style  to generate your bibliography.
Where applicable, author(s) name(s), journal title/book title, chapter title/article title, year of publication, volume number/book chapter and the pagination must be present. The use of DOI is highly encouraged.
References need to be in KJM style.

Examples:
Reference to a journal publication:
[1]  M. Arsenovic and R. F. Shamoyan, On zero sets and parametric representations of some new analytic and meromorphic function spaces in the unit disk, Filomat, 25 (3) (2011), 1–14. 

Reference to a book:
[2] H. Hedenmalm, B. Korenblum and K. Zhu, Theory of Bergman Spaces, Springer-Verlag, New York,
