How to submit an article


Manuscripts should be sent by e-mail to :

  • Abstract:   submissions should include an abstract.
  • Language:  the two accepted languages are French and English.
  • Submission Format:  the submission has been formatted in LaTeX. Upon submission, authors are asked to provide PDF and TeX files of their contribution.

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items.

  • The submission is an original work, has not been previously published, and is not under consideration for publication by any other journal (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • No part of the submission is copied from any other work.
  • The content of the submission contains nothing which infringes on anyone's copyright, right of privacy, or other rights.
  • All required permissions for any material used from other copyrighted publications have been obtained.


Peer Review Process


Each submission will be assessed by Editors, who will send them to one or more reviewer(s). The Peer Review Process of AFST is single blind.


Preparing articles after acceptance


1. LaTeX files  
  • Preparing article: upon acceptance, we ask authors to send one (or more) TeX source file(s), a BibTeX file for the bibliography and the corresponding PDF file. A specific TeX class and a 
    configuration file for the bibliography are available together with a sample file to guide authors. All articles should be prepared using the journal format, with as few macros as possible. Examples of BibTeX entries are available on zbMATH Open.

  • Publication of TeX sources: Authors will be asked to publish their TeX source files for accessibility reasons. If the author accepts, please be aware that the TeX source files of the articles published by AFST are made available online.  This is for the benefit of blind or visually impaired people using software such as screen readers, which work better with TeX source files than with PDF.  Comments left in files make sources harder to read, so we request that authors remove all comments from their TeX source files before submitting the final version.


2. Other files

Authors should not forget to join their macro files and all necessary files.

Note that figures in the paper version of the AFST use only greyscale colour.
