All papers should be submitted via the online system.

IRJMS considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that they have been submitted only to IRJMS, that they have not been published already (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), nor are they under consideration for publication or in press elsewhere.
