Focus and Scope

The Art of Discrete and Applied Mathematics (ADAM) is platinum open access, purely electronic journal that will publish high-quality articles in contemporary mathematics that arise from the discrete and concrete mathematics paradigm. It will favor themes from discrete and applied mathematics. It welcomes original interesing important results in a form of articles and notes, preferably not exceeding 15 pages, as well as longer survey papers. Papers covering single topics such as graph theory, combinatorics, algorithmic graph theory, combinatorial optimization, and chemical graph theory that are not preferred by its sister journal Ars Mathematica Contemporanea (AMC) are most welcome here.

It is expected that ADAM will have lesser backlog than AMC.

Peer Review Process

Papers that are not submitted in the correct from are rejected immediately. Submitted papers are normally first sent to an expert in the field for quick assessment by one of the Section Editors. If the submitted paper does not fit within the scope of the journal or it is not of sufficient interest to the readers, the paper is rejected. In case of positive quick review the paper is sent to 1-3 referees. The corresponding Section Editor oversees the refereeing process and based on the reviewers' comments and recommendations, decides whether to reject or accept the paper. In certain cases where the decision is difficult to achieve, e.g. if there are conflicting referee reports, the case is discussed with some other Editors.
