 Submission Type: Final Submission If this is the final submission, be sure to include the Latex File as well. You may also mention the name of the Handling Editor, Initial Submission Date and Final Submission Date in the Comments Field.
 Paper Title: Negative Sum P^2 GraphsDo NOT use all CAPITALS or all small.
 Previous Submission ID: 14If the paper is being re-submitted after corrections, mention the ID of the previous submission. 
The previous submission ID should be mentioned for final submissions as well if the paper had been submitted earlier.
 SubjectChoose the subject which is the nearest match to the subject of your paper from the drop-down list. Please follow the guidelines HERE. Having this correct speeds up the process.
 Paper (PDF)Submit your paper in PDF format only. Other file formats are not accepted. If you do happen to upload your paper in the doc/docx format then there could be inordinate delays in the process. You are requested to resubmit in PDF in such a case.
 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.
