Preparing and submitting the manuscript

1. Preparing the manuscript

Manuscripts for ETNA must be developed using the LaTeX style files in the SIAM LaTeX package siamltex. The version of this package used by ETNA is available in our LaTeX directory.
The files docultex.tex and lexample.tex in this directory contain a documentation and an example for the use of the SIAM LaTeX style, respectively. The example also illustrates how to provide the mandatory keywords and AMS Subject Classification.

ETNA specifics are described in our Guidelines for ETNA manuscripts. To facilitate the editing process, we ask authors to prepare their manuscript following these guidelines.
Thank you very much!

Please note that it may be necessary for the paper's author to revise or reconstruct the paper's PostScript illustrations. Accordingly, authors are advised to save the data and the programs that produced the data until their papers are published. Normally, PostScript files produced by such programs as MATLAB or Maple can be processed without difficulty.

Authors are encouraged to take advantage of ETNA's capabilities to have supplements to the papers with additional material such as movies or interactive programs. See for example: Vol. 32, pp. 49-62, Vol. 30, pp. 128-143, Vol. 26, pp. 385-420, Vol. 8, pp. 15-20, Vol. 7, pp. 124-140.

2. Submissions

When a manuscript is submitted to ETNA, the paper is entered in the ETNA log. Questions regarding the manuscript can be sent to

Once the paper is accepted, the author will be asked to submit the source files, including any figures, bibliographies, and nonstandard LaTeX packages. The author also will be sent a form for transfer of copyright to ETNA.
