The corresponding author listed in Editorial Manager, whose responsibilities are described below, does not have to match the corresponding author designated on the manuscript title page. If appropriate, based on the responsibilities below, a different author can be listed on the manuscript title page of the submission and will be identified on the final publication if the manuscript is accepted.
The one exception is for submissions included in a Read & Publish agreement. The corresponding author from an institution with a Read & Publish agreement with AMS must be the designated corresponding author within the Editorial Manager tracking system (using their institutional email address in their user account) and the same author must also be the designated corresponding author on the manuscript title page.
The corresponding author who submits the manuscript in Editorial Manager, and is designated in the tracking system as the corresponding author, will be contacted by AMS staff throughout the peer review and production process. This is the only user who will be able to access the manuscript in the tracking system (including viewing the manuscript status) and should be the individual who will be submitting any invited revisions.
The corresponding author who is specified on the manuscript title page will be responsible for receiving any inquiries or requests from readers of the article (or AMS) after publication.
Any individuals who contributed significantly to the manuscript and meet the guidelines of an author as described in item 11 of the Author Disclosure and Obligations should be individually named in the author list.
Treatment of Working Groups
A working group cannot appear in the author list. Any individuals who contributed significantly to the manuscript and meet the guidelines of an author as described in item 11 of the Author Disclosure and Obligations should be individually named in the author list. If the contribution of the group should be recognized, the name of the working group and its membership can be added in the acknowledgments section in full or as a URL link to the group membership.
