1. Manuscripts, hard copies in quadruplicate and in English,should be submitted by regular, unregistered mail, to the Editor in Chief.
Authors may want to recommend an associate editor most related to the submission to possibly handle it. In addition, to assist the Editor and speed the decision process, authors may include a PDF file of the paper on disk with the submitted copies of the manuscript.
Also authors may want to submit a list of six possible referees, to be used in case we cannot find related referees by ourselves.
2. Manuscripts should be typed using any of TEX,LaTEX,AMS-TEX,or AMS-LaTEX and according to EUDOXUS PRESS, LLC. LATEX STYLE FILE. (Click HERE to save a copy of the style file.)They should be carefully prepared in all respects. Submitted copies should be brightly printed (not dot-matrix), double spaced, in ten point type size, on one side high quality paper 8(1/2)x11 inch. Manuscripts should have generous margins on all sides and should not exceed 24 pages.
3. Submission is a representation that the manuscript has not been published previously in this or any other similar form and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. A statement transferring from the authors(or their employers,if they hold the copyright) to Eudoxus Press, LLC, will be required before the manuscript can be accepted for publication.The Editor-in-Chief will supply the necessary forms for this transfer.Such a written transfer of copyright,which previously was assumed to be implicit in the act of submitting a manuscript,is necessary under the U.S.Copyright Law in order for the publisher to carry through the dissemination of research results and reviews as widely and effective as possible.
4. The paper starts with the title of the article, author's name(s) (no titles or degrees), author's affiliation(s) and e-mail addresses. The affiliation should comprise the department, institution (usually university or company), city, state (and/or nation) and mail code.
The following items, 5 and 6, should be on page no. 1 of the paper.
5. An abstract is to be provided, preferably no longer than 150 words.
6. A list of 5 key words is to be provided directly below the abstract. Key words should express the precise content of the manuscript, as they are used for indexing purposes.
The main body of the paper should begin on page no. 1, if possible.
7. All sections should be numbered with Arabic numerals (such as: 1. INTRODUCTION) .
Subsections should be identified with section and subsection numbers (such as 6.1. Second-Value Subheading).
If applicable, an independent single-number system (one for each category) should be used to label all theorems, lemmas, propositions, corrolaries, definitions, remarks, examples, etc. The label (such as Lemma 7) should be typed with paragraph indentation, followed by a period and the lemma itself.
8. Mathematical notation must be typeset. Equations should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in parentheses placed flush right,and should be thusly referred to in the text [such as Eqs.(2) and (5)]. The running title must be placed at the top of even numbered pages and the first author's name, et al., must be placed at the top of the odd numbed pages.
9. Illustrations (photographs, drawings, diagrams, and charts) are to be numbered in one consecutive series of Arabic numerals. The captions for illustrations should be typed double space. All illustrations, charts, tables, etc., must be embedded in the body of the manuscript in proper, final, print position. In particular, manuscript, source, and PDF file version must be at camera ready stage for publication or they cannot be considered.
Tables are to be numbered (with Roman numerals) and referred to by number in the text. Center the title above the table, and type explanatory footnotes (indicated by superscript lowercase letters) below the table.
10. List references alphabetically at the end of the paper and number them consecutively. Each must be cited in the text by the appropriate Arabic numeral in square brackets on the baseline.
References should include (in the following order):
initials of first and middle name, last name of author(s)
title of article,
name of publication, volume number, inclusive pages, and year of publication.
Authors should follow these examples:
1. H.H.Gonska,Degree of simultaneous approximation of bivariate functions by Gordon operators, (journal name in italics) J. Approx. Theory, 62,170-191(1990).
2. G.G.Lorentz, (title of book in italics) Bernstein Polynomials (2nd ed.), Chelsea,New York,1986.

3. M.K.Khan, Approximation properties of beta operators,in(title of book in italics) Progress in Approximation Theory (P.Nevai and A.Pinkus,eds.), Academic Press, New York,1991,pp.483-495.
11. All acknowledgements (including those for a grant and financial support) should occur in one paragraph that directly precedes the References section.
12. Footnotes should be avoided. When their use is absolutely necessary, footnotes should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals and should be typed at the bottom of the page to which they refer. Place a line above the footnote, so that it is set off from the text. Use the appropriate superscript numeral for citation in the text.
13. After each revision is made please again submit four hard copies of the revised manuscript. And after a manuscript has been accepted for publication submit four hard copies of the final revised manuscript. Additionally, two copies of the final version of the TEX/LaTex source file and a PDF file, are to be submitted to the Editor's Office on personal 3.5 inch computer disks. Label the disks individually with clearly written identifying information, e.g. :
