Revision Requirements

Author Requirements

All revisions must be uploaded to the publication’s Editorial Manager website. Select the journal from the list or click the URL in your decision letter and log in as an author. Locate your submission in the Submissions Needing Revision queue. Under Action Links, click Revise Submission. Do NOT send revisions by e-mail.

  1. Adhere to all specified manuscript guidelines.
  2. In your manuscript file, include a complete list of figure captions after the references section and before the individually captioned figures. 
  3. In Editorial Manager, be sure to select the correct item types for each file you upload.
  4. Upload a separate response to reviewers file with detailed responses to the reviewer comments. This file must be uploaded before you are able to build a PDF of your revision in Editorial Manager. An optional cover letter accessible by the editor ONLY may be used to provide additional information.
  5. Upload the source file(s) used to create your revision (Word, LaTeX, Rich Text, etc.). LaTeX users must upload all files (.tex, .bib, .bst, .sty, etc.) associated with the submission (see the AMS Submission Information for LaTex Authors).
  6. Upload figure source files that meet the requirements for journals and BAMS. The files must be formatted for publication and included with all revisions. To avoid extra charges, graphics MUST be uploaded as one complete figure per file. Enter the figure number in the description field when uploading your figure files (or on the Attach Files page after upload) even if the figure number is in the file name.
  7. The manuscript submitted for peer review must be identical to what you intend to publish, including the use of black and white and color figures. If color figures in the manuscript will be published in black and white, make the change to black and white before uploading the revision. Ensure that related manuscript text and captions are correct.
  8. Answer the required questions on the Additional Information page in Editorial Manager. If you do not wish for your manuscript to be posted as an AMS Early Online Release (EOR), you must opt out on this page before approving your revision.
  9. Review the manuscript and the built PDF for errors. The quality of your revision should be acceptable for posting as an EOR and for processing for final publication. Any postacceptance changes will add time and expense to processing.
