For more information about how to write and submit LiveCoMS articles, please visit our our authors guide.

Types of articles

Five types of manuscripts are currently published in LiveCoMS:

Before Submission

Authors must first send a presubmission letter to the section lead editor in the relevant area.

The contents of the letter are described in the Guide for writing articles for LiveCoMS.

Submissions without an approved presubmission letter will be rejected without review.

Once approved for submission, the authors should prepare the manuscript using LaTeX in a suitable public GitHub repository, using our LaTeX template.

Instructions on how to use the templates can be found in the GitHub repository with the template files. Submission is free.

A complete description of how to prepare an article can be found in the guide for writing an article for LiveCoMS.

Submission process

Articles (after approval of the presubmission letter) are submitted on the journal site, from the "Submissions" page

Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the five-step process.
