Guide for Authors 

The Journal of Linear and Topological Algebra (JLTA) is published quarterly. There are no page charges for submission or publication. All manuscript submissions to the Journal of Linear and Topological Algebra (JLTA) should be made online via the website of the journal ( Submissions should be converted to PDF format and should be uploaded. The source files in "LaTeX"  is acceptable (with any associated high quality graphics files, if any) too. 

New users should first create an account. Once a user is logged on to the site, submissions should be made via the "Submit New Manuscript tab". "Guide for Authors" can be found at "Online Submissions". Authors should ensure that their figures are suitable (in terms of lettering size, quality, etc.) for the reductions they intend.

The authors who are preparing papers for the Journal of Linear and Topological Algebra, can use the LaTeX document preparation system and the Class file jltatex.cls, which is available via the journal homepage on the JLTA website. Authors planning to submit their papers in LaTeX are advised to use jltatex.cls as early as possible in the creation of their files. The layout design for JLTA has been implemented as a LaTeX Classfile. The JLTA class file is based on article.cls. JLTA don't accept none of the Word-office versions (for submitted paper or accepted paper) and come back directly the manuscript.

At the beginning of your article, the title should be generated in the usual way using the make title command. Immediately following the title you should include an abstract. The abstract should be enclosed within an abstract environment. References cited in the text should be quoted by their number as they are listed in the alphabetical References list towards the end of the document (e.g. [24], [2,5,18], [16-19], not [12][19] ). To produce the References list, the bibliographic data about each reference item should be listed in the bibliography environment in alphabetical order. Each bibliographical entry has a key, which is assigned by the author and used to refer to that entry in the text. The references with more than three authors begin with the first-named author initials and surname followed by et al.
