Submission of Papers

Submission of a manuscript implies (a) that the same work has not been published before; (b) that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; and (c) that its publication has been approved by all co-authors.

Papers must be submitted electronically.  Authors should access the Electronic Journal Management System (EJMS) at If you are a first time user you must complete the registration. You are only required to register once.

After the registration is complete you will have the option to submit your manuscript. After completing the form you will then upload your PDF file.

Note: For instructions on the submission of revisions of papers, please see Contacts.


Manuscripts must be written in LaTeX using AAP’s template. Template will set proper margins and font, sample.pdf and sample.tex files will assist in the preparation of a camera-ready paper in LaTeX. These documents contain useful information regarding the structure of your document, proper tagging style, layout features, etc. Please do not use any packages or commands that affect the layout or formatting of your document.


Journal space is extremely valuable. As indication (2016-2018), submissions had an average of 32 pages with a standard deviation of 13 pages (in the standard style for Annals of Applied Probability, cf. Manuscript Preparation Guideline).

AAP does not have a strict limit on the length of individual papers, but mind that processing times for long papers can be frustratingly long (as it is difficult to find competent and willing reviewers for such papers, in addition to the extra time required by editors and reviewer). It is furthermore our editorial view that ultimate acceptance of a long paper basically requires a significant breakthrough that can be expected to reshape its field for the foreseeable future. This is not very common.

For all these reasons, please consider very carefully the length of your submission. Whenever appropriate, consider optimizing your presentation. You may also place part of the work as supplementary material before you submit it, but this should only concern standard material and variations thereof that the experienced reader would typically skim over. This supplementary material should be attached to the submission. You will be asked to make it easily accessible if the paper is accepted and to quote explicitly the corresponding download link in the final AAP version of your work.
