Author Guidelines

Submission Requirements

Submissions to GAMMAS must be well-structured and written in a clear and concise manner. We strongly encourage authors to provide supplementary materials to ensure the replicability, reusability, and accessibility of their results. This can include raw data or source code as well as videos and further multimedia content.

The main author of a research paper or a technical brief must either be a student or a recent graduate with no more than one year between the time of graduation and submission. Each submission of a research paper or a technical brief must be endorsed by a supervising senior researcher. Note that supervisors may not be named as authors.

Educational articles may also be submitted by senior researchers.

All articles are peer reviewed (double open) to meet the quality standards and to initiate an instructive discussion.

All manuscripts submitted to GAMMAS must be written in English and must be formatted using the unmodified LaTeX Template.  For the initial submission, a PDF version of the manuscript is sufficient. Subsequent submissions need to include all necessary LaTeX source and image files.
