IMPORTANT: Beginning on January 1, 2015 the Monthly will impliment a double blind review process. Please remove your author names and information from all submissions before uploading them to the Editorial Manager system. You will still have to enter your name but that is only for the back office to see.

Submissions to the Monthly are required through the Monthly's Editorial Manager online. Papers submitted by mail or email will not be considered.  The System is capable of handling files in a variety of formats, but at the end of the submission process, your manuscript will be converted to pdf format.  If this is your first time to submit a paper through Editorial Manager, please follow the instructions for First-time users, click on the word "Register" in the navigation bar at the top of the page and enter the requested information. Upon successful registration, you will be sent an e-mail with instructions to verify your registration. After submitting your manuscript, you may track its progress through the system. Revisions to submissions are note permitted until the Editorial Board has reached at least a preliminary decision on your manuscript.

Submission of a manuscript to the Monthly implies that the manuscript has not been published and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
