Instructions to Authors


Temporary suspension of new paper submissions

As of December 1, 2022, we are temporarily suspending new paper submissions until we are able to process the large backlog of manuscripts received in 2022. We expect to reopen submissions in February 2023.

See the NNTDM Newsletter for the full announcement.

Email submission

We encourage manuscript submission to “Notes on Number Theory and Discrete Mathematics” by email: . Please send your manuscript in PDF format, formatted according to the Journal requirements and templates (see below), and accompanied by a cover letter with a signed declaration of originality and authorship.

In response, the Journal’s technical editor will notify you about your submission’s ID number. Please refer to this number in future correspondence.

Submissions that fail to comply with the above requirements will not be handled by editors and not assigned for peer review, until the authors do the needful. Additional details regarding the antiplagiarism checks of the submissions are given below.

Submission templates

Authors are requested to prepare their manuscripts in LaTeX (.tex) or MS Word (.docx) in the following templates. We highly recommend the use of LaTeX.

Antiplagiarism check

As of September 2022, Journal “Notes on Number Theory and Discrete Mathematics” has been provided access to a popular plagiarism detection software tool to verify the originality and authorship of the manuscripts submitted to the Journal.

In due time after the submission, a Technical Editor will perform the antiplagiarism check. Depending on the manuscript’s similarity scores produced by the tool, the manuscript will either be returned to the authors for correction, or it will be desk rejected on the basis of the Journal’s Publication Ethics Policy.

Note: Submissions that have been deposited in preprint repositories prior to the check tend to exhibit very high similarity scores and thus invalidate the quality plagiarism check process. For this reason, while we do not forbid that submissions get deposited in preprint repositories or institutional websites, we require authors to do so only after making the submission to NNTDM and after being informed about the results of the antiplagiarism check.

Peer review process

Manuscripts submitted to “Notes on Number Theory and Discrete Mathematics” are subject to peer review by at least two independent referees. Final decision is taken by the Editors-in-Chief in consultation with members of the Editorial Board.

Papers will only be considered if the content is substantially new, original material which has not been published elsewhere, has not been submitted concurrently elsewhere, nor is likely to be published substantially in the same form elsewhere.
