As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission has been formatted in LaTeX using the journal style files indicated in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

Manuscripts must be written with the Algebraic Combinatorics LaTeX style file.  The relevant source files available here:

- model LaTeX file: https://ac.mersenne.fr/downloads/sample.tex
- model bibliographic file: https://ac.mersenne.fr/downloads/biblio.bib
- class file: https://ac.mersenne.fr/downloads/cedram-alco.cls
- gzipped archive with all files: https://ac.mersenne.fr/downloads/alco-examples.tar.gz

We ask authors to respect the following instructions when preparing their articles :

  • - for internal references use the commands \label, \ref, \eqref etc of LaTeX (no manual numbering !).
  • - the list of bibliographic references must be placed in a specific file, in BibTeX format (extension .bib).
  • - in the LaTeX file (extension .tex), references to citations must use the \cite command.
  • - if a URL is cited, use the \url command like this : \url{http://msia.cedram.org/}.

The file sample.tex (in which authors may copy the body of their article) contains an example of an article showing the use of different proposed environments. these environments must not be changed. Many comments are included to explain the commands. Users must use the functionalities of LaTeX for automatic updating of internal references (\cite, \ref, etc). 


The file biblio.bib (in which authors can place the bibliography of their article) shows how to write a reference list in "BibTeX" format. 

The file cedram-alco.cls must not undergo any changes or alterations. It must be put as is in the same directory as the article and the bibliography. 

Remark : the file sample.tex requires the AMS font package, as indicated in the comment lines. this package is available on the AMS website. The system is conceived to be used with pdflatex, to produce directly a PDF : All image formats must be compatible (do not use tools such as PStricks, psfrag, etc.). 

To obtain a file "sample.pdf" from the sample.tex file, after downloading the file cedram-alco.cls into the current directory, type (in this order) the following commands :
  • pdflatex sample.tex
  • bibtex sample.aux, or simply bibtex sample
  • pdflatex sample.tex
  • pdflatex sample.tex
