DISSERTATIONES MATHEMATICAE publishes long research papers (preferably 50-100 pages) in any area of mathematics. An important feature of papers accepted for publication should be their utility for a broad readership of specialists in the domain. In particular, the papers should be to some reasonable extent self-contained. The paper version is considered as primary.

The following criteria are taken into account in the reviewing procedure: correctness, mathematical level, mathematical novelty, utility for a broad readership of specialists in the domain, language and editorial aspects. The Editors have adopted appropriate procedures to avoid ghostwriting and guest authorship.

Papers should be submitted by sending a PDF file to email.

**Submission** of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that it will not be submitted elsewhere unless it has been rejected by the editors of Dissertationes Mathematicae.

On the proof stage, the author will be asked to sign the copyright transfer agreement.

To avoid ghostwriting and guest authorship the corresponding author is responsible for informing the editors about the contribution of all coauthors and other institutions or subjects in preparing and financing the submission.

**Manuscripts** in English should be submitted electronically by sending a PDF file to e-mail.

**On acceptance of the paper**, the authors will be asked to transmit the source file.

Recommended **format** of manuscripts: 10-point type, text width 13.5 cm. If possible, use the style file for Dissertationes Mathematicae:

- Style file in Latex2e: dis.cls

- Sample paper: dis-sample.tex

- Sample paper (pdf): dis-sample.pdf

In case of any problems with the use of the style file, or if you need some special features, write to e-mail.

An abstract (in English) of not more than 200 words, the AMS Mathematics Subject Classification and a list of key words and phrases are required.

Figures must be prepared in electronic form, suitable for direct reproduction. The use of very thin lines should be avoided.

References should be arranged in alphabetical order and styled according to the examples given below. Abbreviations of journal names should follow Mathematical Reviews.

Complete **postal addresses** of all authors should be given.

PDF **proofs** will be e-mailed to the corresponding author. If the author's corrections are not received promptly, the article will be printed in a later issue.

The **Online First** version of the article will be sent to the author and published on the journal's web site before the article is assigned to an issue. This version will be freely downloadable for everybody. The author is allowed to post the “Online First” version to his/her personal web site and to any other archives.

When the paper is assigned to an issue, the final print file with all publication data included will also be sent to the author. The latter file will be for the author's personal use only and should not appear on any web site other than IMPAN’s.

If desired, 8 free **offprints** of the article will be sent to the corresponding author. Additional offprints can be ordered when sending the proof corrections.

The article can also be published in **Open Access **(that is, with the final print file also freely downloadable) upon paying a fee of 400 euros. The decision should be communicated at the proof stage; the appropriate invoice will then be sent to the author.
