Directions for authors

Open Systems & Information Dynamics encourages the submission of papers in LaTeX using a  provisional OSID style. However, papers submitted in plain TeX, AmsTeX, RevTeX, etc. are also accepted. The use of nonincluded `exotic’ style files or nonstandard fonts should be avoided. It is advisable that the source file be accompanied by a .ps or .pdf file or a hardcopy (or a reference to an electronic archive) in case anything needs to be checked. The maximum length should be 800 lines of 11 point type of length 14 cm. (This amounts to 20 pages of usual TeX magstep 1 format.) An abstract not exceeding 200 words is required.

Figures:  All graphs and diagrams should be referred to as `Figure' in the text and, if relevant, a detailed caption should be provided for each figure. The approximate required location of figures and tables should be indicated in the text. The figures themselves should be supplied as separate .eps files or as good quality prints on separate sheets of paper.

References  will appear numbered within square brackets in the text, and listed accordingly at the end of the article (e.g. using standard `\cite{}’ and `\bibitem{}’ LaTeX commands). The references should be arranged alphabetically by author’s name. A journal reference should comprise author’s name(s) and initials, AMS abbreviated title of a journal, volume number, year of publication, and the initial page number, e.g.: 

[1] J. H. Schwartz, Lett. Math. Phys. 34 (1995), 309.

A book reference should comprise author’s name(s) and initials, full title of the book, publisher, place of publication, year of publication, e.g.:

[2] V. N. Popov, Functional Integrals in Quantum Field Theory and Statistical Physics, D. Reidel, Dordrecht, 1983.

An edited volume reference should comprise name(s) and initial(s) of author(s), title of paper, name(s) of editor(s), full title of the book, publisher, place of publication, year of publication, inclusive page numbers, e.g.:

[3] J. Evans, and Y. Kawahigashi, Subfactors and conformal field theory, in: H. Araki, K. Ito, A. Kishimoto, and I. Ojima, (eds.), Quantum and Non-Commutative Analysis, Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht, 1993, 341–369.

Proofs:  Authors will receive page proofs in print or as a .pdf file, and are obliged to return corrected proofs to the editorial office without delay. In case when proofs are not returned within a reasonable period of time, the editors will read them and send to print without the authors' comments. 

No page charge will be exacted.

Authors have a choice of 20 free reprints or an official PDF file of their paper upon publication. Additional copies of reprints can be ordered.
