MATH PAPER PRESS
GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS

Math Paper Press has drawn up the following guidelines to facilitate the submission and review of manuscripts. For proper assessment of the manuscript, applicants are advised to submit complete applications to kennyleck@booksactually.com. Incomplete submissions and manuscripts that do not conform to these guidelines may not be reviewed. Please do not send hard copy manuscripts.

As we receive many manuscripts, we may take some time to respond to submissions. Do give our editorial team at least two months to get back to you.
