Information for Authors
All articles submitted to JSTP must be written in good English and must be prepared following very strictly the format described below. The work should be original work and no part of this work should be under consideration for publication elsewhere. It will be assumed that all co-authors have consented to the submission of the article to JSTP. If the article is accepted for publication in JSTP, the corresponding author will be asked to sign a copyright transfer.
The article may be prepared in MS Word or LaTeX. LaTeX file to be accompanied with corresponding pdf file. All images, graphs, etc. should also be sent as separate files along with the article. Minimum resolution of the images should be 300 dpi. Please take a look at the sample manuscript.
Only the article title, section headings and words such as Abstract, Keywords, Acknowledgement and References should be in bold using Times New Roman 10 pt font. Everything else should use a normal Times New Roman 10 pt font. Typing should be single space throughout, with new paragraphs to begin on a new line. Add a header on each page starting on page 2.
The cover page should include a title for the article typed in bold using a 12 pt font. Only the first letter of main words in the title should be capitalized.
This should be followed by the names and affiliations (including email addresses) of all authors. The first page should also include a brief abstract. The abstract should be followed by a list of AMS Subject Classification and of Keywords. Include a bold line immediately before Abstract and immediately after Keywords. Start Introduction on page 1 itself after one space below the bold line after Keywords
Grant and institutional acknowledgements, if any, should go in the Acknowledgement section towards the end of the article. Size of the abstract should be adjusted so that no information from cover page spills over to the next page.
All equations should be numbered consecutively within each section (1.1, 1.2, 1.3,..., 2.1, 2.2, 2.3,..., 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, etc.). Equations should be left-aligned but Equation numbers should be right-aligned.
Section Headings and Numbering
Section headings should be in bold 10 pt font and should be numbered consecutively (1, 2, 3, etc.). Only the first letter of a section heading should be capitalized. If sub-sections are used, they should also be titled in bold using a 10 pt font. Sub-sections should be numbered consecutively within each section (1.1, 1.2, 1.3,..., 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 etc).
