About the Journal

Aims and Scope

The Journal of Nepal Mathematical Society (JNMS) is the official journal published by the Nepal Mathematical Society (NMS). It covers wide spectrum of the field of mathematics and its real-world applications.

This journal will be publishing the high-quality theoretical results, new mathematical models and algorithms, efficient computational studies in any field of pure and applied mathematics. The journal also emphasizes the original mathematical papers devoted to the mathematical sciences with mathematical treatment of questions arising in the real-life problems, like computer science/informatics, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, engineering, management and all applied sciences. The article should have significant contributions on conceptual development of pure or applied mathematics or on their current developments and practices where the applicability can be explicitly materialized.

The journal JNMS publishes full-length original research articles, state-of-the arts surveys, high standard short notes in any field of mathematics. The pure and applied fields include, but is not limited to, algebra, mathematical analysis, complex analysis, functional analysis, topology, algebraic topology, geometry, algebraic geometry, differential geometry, differential equations, dynamical systems, continuous and discrete optimization, operations research, scheduling theory, graph theory, biomathematics, industrial mathematics, financial mathematics, mathematical modeling, computational mathematics, number theory, control theory, mathematical statistics, and any area of mathematical sciences.

Publication Frequency

The journal publishes two issues a year.

Editorial Policy

The JNMS welcomes high-quality original papers and the state-of-arts surveys in all areas of applied and pure mathematics. The authors should have justified that the outcome they claim really contribute to mathematical sciences analytically or in applications to real-life. Theoretical as well as computational results are equally acceptable.

The authors are advised to limit the paper length up to 20 pages including the clearly drawn Latex figures and tables as mentioned in the paper Template. However, substantial deviations from the page limit require that the referees, editor, and editor-in-chief be convinced that the increased length be essential for the submitted manuscript.

Submission of a manuscript to the JNMS should be explicitly authenticated by the corresponding author that the manuscript has not been published or submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. Papers included in a conference proceeding should be clearly mentioned and cited.
Papers authored by the editorial board members will be edited by an area editor directed by the editor-in-chief and papers authored by the editor-in-chief itself will be handled by specific area expert of the editorial board. 

Review Policy

Only the manuscript electronically submitted to JNMS through the editor-in-chief will be processed for further review process. Submissions to the JNMS authored by the editorial board members will be directed to the editor-in-chief who proceeds for the further review process. However, the papers authored by the editor-in-chief itself should be submitted to the area specific member of the editorial board who directly proceeds for the review process.

Hard-copy submissions will not be considered for further evaluation. As soon as a board member in the respective areas of research accepts the request, the editor-n-chief will direct the manuscript to him/her for further review process. The authors will be acknowledged the recipient of submitted manuscript. The communicating editor has a right to communicate back to the chief-in-editor that the manuscript is not within the aim and scope of the journal and be rejected, or should be rewritten and resubmitted for further review process or forward for the review process.

If the manuscript is forwarded for the review process, the authors will be notified by the communication editor for the specific purpose. The reviewing processes will be informed to the corresponding author by the communicating editor. The communicating editor associated for a specific manuscript will proceed forward for further evaluation process within the list of experts recommended by the author itself or any other independently. The editor will assign two to three referees for reviewing the manuscript. The same rule applies to the papers authored by the editor-in-chief and editorial board members.

Generally, paper lengths are limited to 20 pages including all figures and tables. However, this can be extended with the acceptances of the respective referees, communicating editor and the editor-in-chief. The submitted manuscript should meet the standard of the JNMS.

The evacuation process does not automatically mean that the paper should be accepted. The reviewers will write a report to the communicating editors as their recommendations accepted or to be accepted with minor revision or to be considered with major revision or be rejected lacking the standard of the journal. The final recommendations made by the communicating editor will be forwarded to the editor-in-chief and the authors will be informed accordingly.

It is planned that the overall review process will be completed within three months of a submission. The communicating editors and the referees will be requested and reminded accordingly. The reviewers are informed about the authors through the paper submission; however, authors do not know the reviewers.

The submitted manuscript can be withdrawn if authors request it with sufficient reason and the paper is not forwarded to a reviewer yet. Authors may also claim for withdrawal in case the review process fails to complete even after extended time periods.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
