Instructions to the Contributors

  • Manuscripts submission to this journal proceeds totally online.
  • The manuscript should be prepared with TEX or LATEX. Please make sure that the paper is submitted in its final form. The TEX and figure files are not required at submission stage, but will be required upon acceptance.
  • All papers are fully refereed. Submission of a manuscript to Indian Journal of Discrete Mathematics implies that the paper has not been published elsewhere, is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere, and, if accepted by Indian Journal of Discrete Mathematics, will not be published elsewhere.
  • Each contribution should have a brief abstract, a few key-words and the American Mathematical Society subject classification of the paper.
  • References should be listed alphabetically, as in the sample citation given below.
    • For a book:  M.C. Golumbic, Algorithmic Graph Theory and Perfect Graphs, Academic Press, New York, 1980
    • For a paper in a journal: B.D. Acharya and P. Gupta, Domination in Graphoidal covers of a graph. Discrete Math., 206 (1999), 3-33.
    • For a paper in a contributed volume: L. Lovász, Perfect Graphs, in : L.W. Beineke and R.J. Wilson Ed., Selected Topics in Graph Theory 2, Academic press, London (1983),  55-87.
  • Abbreviations for the titles of the journals should conform to the world list of Scientific Periodicals.
  • For each published paper, the corresponding author will be provided with a PDF of the article via e-mail.
  • Before you submit please go through the guidelines.


  • Ensure you have followed the typesetting guidelines.
  • Ensure that you have named the file as per the File Naming guidelines.
  • Ensure that you have access to the email you registered. The registered email will be used for all communication with the journal. This email is also your Username.It is important to choose the subject nearest to the paper you are submitting from the drop down to help expedite the review process.6. Please specify the email of the corresponding editor if any (not the name). Please note that this field is for the corresponding "editor" and not the "corresponding author". The corresponding author is taken to be the one whose details are used to upload the paper.
  • If it is a final submission (after all the corrections have been made as suggested by the editors) then it is mandatory to upload the PDF as well as TEX file as the publication process will start. We recommend you submit the TEX file even if it is a re-submission and not yet a final submission. To keep delays to the minimum upload the TEX file always.
  • Please allow 3-4 months before inquiring the status of a paper. Direct all such communications to admin@adma.co.in.
  • Below is an example of how to fill the Submission form after login.

 Example  Guideline
 Name: Prithviraj Chauhan Do NOT use all CAPITALS or all small. For example, for Full Name use - First Middle Last. For example:
-prithviraj chauhan - wrong
-Prithivraj Chauhan -right
 Email: prithvi@example.com Use the Email you constantly monitor.
 Paper Title: Negative Sum P^2 Graphs Do NOT use all CAPITALS or all small.
 LaTeX file upload
Normally, the LaTeX file is required when you submit the final manuscript. However, in case your paper is accepted 'as is' without the need for any corrections then it would be better to have the LaTeX file also - in which case you will not be required to resubmit. Take your best call whether to upload the LaTeX file for your paper in the first go itself.
Use the style files of IJDM to ensure you follow the typesetting guidelines of the journal before submitting to it. The typesetting guidelines are found HERE.
Ensure that the \author tag is used in the .tex to list all the authors in the header of the paper.
If the paper is a Final Submission, then the .tex is mandatory to upload. The .tex must also contain the \author tag.


Authors are requested to follow the typesetting guidelines specified by the journal. Provided here are the style files in latex and pdf which can be downloaded for reference and use.

File Naming

The title of your paper should be the name of your file without the whitespaces and special characters. Refer examples provided here:
  • Title: Domination in Graphoidal covers of a graph. FileName: DominationInGraphoidalCoversOfAGraph.pdf, DominationInGraphoidalCoversOfAGraph.tex
  • Title: On p^2 si-graphs. FileName: OnP2Sigraphs.pdf, OnP2Sigraphs.tex
  • Title: Interesting properties of a domination matrix. FileName: InterestingPropertiesOfADominationMatrix.pdf, InterestingPropertiesOfADominationMatrix.tex
-File names do not have whitespaces, each word starts with a capital letter and there are no short forms used.
-If you are re-submitting with a changed title, please use the "original" title as the file name.

Peer Review Policy

To maintain a high-quality publication, all submissions undergo a rigorous review process. Characteristics of the peer review process are as follows:
  • Simultaneous submissions of the same manuscript to different journals will not be tolerated.
  • Manuscripts with contents outside the scope will not be considered for review.
  • Papers will be refereed by at least 2 experts as suggested by the editorial board.
  • In addition, Editors will have the option of seeking additional reviews when needed. Authors will be informed when Editors decide further review is required.
  • All publication decisions are made by the journal's Editors-in-Chief on the basis of the referees' reports. Authors of papers that are not accepted are notified promptly.
  • All submitted manuscripts are treated as confidential documents. We expect our Board of Reviewing Editors and reviewers to treat manuscripts as confidential material as well.

Ethical Policy

Authors must be honest in presenting their results and conclusions of their research. Research misconduct is a harmful for knowledge. It could mislead other researchers. Research misconduct can appear in many forms:
  • Fabrication involves making up results and recording them as if they were real;
  • Falsification involves manipulating research processes or changing or omitting data;
  • Plagiarism is the appropriation of other people's material without giving proper credit;
  • Other forms of misconduct include failure to meet clear ethical and legal requirements such as misrepresentation of interests, breach of confidentiality, lack of informed consent and abuse of research subjects or materials. Misconduct also includes improper dealing with infringements, such as attempts to cover up misconduct and reprisals on whistleblowers;
  • Minor misdemeanours may not lead to formal investigations, but are just as damaging given their probable frequency, and should be corrected by teachers and mentors.
All those who have made a significant contribution should be given chance to be cited as authors. Other individuals who have contributed to the work should be acknowledged. Articles should include a full list of the current institutional affiliations of all authors, both academic and corporate.

Reproducing text from other papers without properly crediting the source (plagiarism) or producing many papers with almost the same content by the same authors (self-plagiarism) is not acceptable. Submitting the same results to more than one journal concurrently is unethical. Exceptions are the review articles. Authors may not present results obtained by others as if they were their own. Authors should acknowledge the work of others used in their research and cite publications that have influenced the direction and course of their study.

The primary responsibility for handling research misconduct is in the hands of those who employ the researchers. If a possible misconduct is brought to our attention, we will seek advice from the referees and the Editorial Board. If there is the evidence, we will resolve the matter by appropriate corrections in the journal; by refusing to consider an author's future work, for a given period, and by contacting affected authors and editors of other journals.
