Focus and Scope

Journal of Mathematical Extension(JME) is a monthly journal which is dedicated to the publication of original and survey articles in pure and applied mathematics. All submitted manuscripts are checked by iThenticate plagiarism checker software and then will be peer reviewed critically by referees. This influential publication covers a wide spectrum of subjects including nonlinear analysis and its applications, general theory  and special classes of linear operators, approximation theory, ordinary and partial differential operators, integral equations, optimization and mathematical programming, applied commutative algebra and algebraic geometry, groups and semi groups of linear operators, their generalizations and applications and other areas.  Currently, the journal's acceptance rate is around 18-22%

This journal does not charge publication/processing fees from the Author(s). We also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs and a liberal copyright policy.

Please see our Guide for Authors for information on article submission.

Peer Review Process

All submitted manuscripts will be blind peer reviewed critically by referees. A manuscript can be sent to referees only when it meets the JME's standard requirements; otherwise, it will be returned to author(s) for revision to meet journal's requirement. The editor usually informs the author(s) regarding comments from the referees. If necessary, the author(s) would be asked to revise the manuscript according to the referees' suggestions. A cover letter that addresses the issues, point by point, raised in the suggestions should be included. This revision will be forwarded to the referee who will recheck the same. Revised manuscripts returned at most after 14 days will be considered as a new submission.

It normally takes 10 working days to inform authors whether their submission proceeds to the reviw stage or not. It should be noted that the whole review process averagely takes 4 months.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.


Plagiarism Policy

All submitted papers are checked by iThenticate plagiarism checker software. Authors should always take great care to distinguish their own ideas and knowledge from information derived from sources. The term “sources” includes not only primary and secondary material published in print or online, but also information and opinions gained directly from other people. Proper acknowledgements to other works must be given (this includes material that is closely copied (near verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marks are used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions are secured for material that is copyrighted.

If there is a suspicion of misconduct, the journal will carry out an investigation. If, after investigation, the allegation seems to raise valid concerns, the accused author will be contacted and given an opportunity to address the issue. If misconduct has been established beyond reasonable doubt, this may result in the Editor-in-Chief’s implementation of the following measures, including, but not limited to:

If the article is still under consideration, it may be rejected and returned to the author.
The author’s institution may be informed.
If a case of plagiarism comes to light after a paper is published in this journal, the journal will conduct a preliminary investigation. If plagiarism is found, the journal will contact the author's institute and funding agencies. A determination of misconduct will lead the journal to run a statement, bidirectionally linked online to and from the original paper, to note the plagiarism and to provide a reference to the plagiarised material. The paper containing the plagiarism will also be obviously marked on each page of the PDF. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted.
If you come across a case of plagiarism in this journal  please do inform our editorial office and give them title of manuscripts, name of authors, volume number, issue number, year of publication and any other information you may have. The editorial office will handle the cases immediately.


Conflict of Interest

When an investigator, author, editor, or reviewer has a financial/personal interest or belief that could affect his/her objectivity, or inappropriately influence his/her actions, a potential conflict of interest exists. Such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties. To ensure objectivity and transparency in research and to ensure that accepted principles of ethical and professional conduct have been followed, authors should include information regarding sources of funding and potential conflicts of interest (financial or non-financial).

Authors must disclose all relationships or interests that could have direct or potential influence or impart bias on the work. Although an author may not feel there is any conflict, disclosure of relationships and interests provides a more complete and transparent process, leading to an accurate and objective assessment of the work. Awareness of a real or perceived conflicts of interest is a perspective to which the readers are entitled. This is not meant to imply that a financial relationship with an organization that sponsored the research or compensation received for consultancy work is inappropriate. Examples of potential conflicts of interests that are directly or indirectly related to the research may include but are not limited to the following:
  • Research grants from funding agencies (please give the research funder and the grant number)
  • Honoraria for speaking at symposia
  • Financial support for attending symposia
  • Financial support for educational programs
  • Employment or consultation
  • Support from a project sponsor
  • Position on advisory board or board of directors or other type of management relationships
  • Multiple affiliations
  • Financial relationships, for example equity ownership or investment interest
  • Intellectual property rights (e.g. patents, copyrights and royalties from such rights)
  • Holdings of spouse and/or children that may have financial interest in the work
In addition, interests that go beyond financial interests and compensation (non-financial interests) that may be important to readers should be disclosed. These may include but are not limited to personal relationships or competing interests directly or indirectly tied to this research, or professional interests or personal beliefs that may influence your research.The corresponding author collects the conflict of interest disclosure forms from all authors. In author collaborations where formal agreements for representation allow it, it is sufficient for the corresponding author to sign the disclosure form on behalf of all authors. Authors can email and ask the managing editor to receive these forms.

The corresponding author will include a summary statement in the text of the manuscript in a separate section before the reference list, that reflects what is recorded in the potential conflict of interest disclosure form(s). See below examples of disclosures:

Funding: This study was funded by X (grant number X).

Conflict of Interest: Author A has received research grants from Company A. Author B has received a speaker honorarium from Company X and owns stock in Company Y. Author C is a member of committee Z. If no conflict exists, the authors should state: Conflict of Interest: The authors declare that they have no conflict of interest.
