Author Guidelines

Authors are asked to submit manuscripts prepared in some flavour of LaTeX.  The journal Applied General Topology does not have either article submission charges or  article processing charges (APCs).

Due to publishing constraints, only two submissions per author per year will be considered.

Papers dealing with generalizations or modifications of topological spaces and their basic properties, mappings between (generalized) topological spaces, or separation axioms, will not be considered.

Since Applied General Topology is a generalist journal we will not consider for publication very specialized papers which could not be of interest for a wide audience.

The manuscript should be written in good English and should take into account the following instructions.

Essential title page information
  • Title. It should be concise and informative avoiding abbreviations and formulae where possible.
  • Author names and affiliations. The full postal address and electronic e-mail of each author must be provided.
  • Abstract. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.
  • Keywords. Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords.These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
  • Mathematics Subject Classification. Please provide classification codes as per the standard AMS codes. A full list and information for these can be found at


Graphics and figures files must also be provided after acceptance of the manuscripts. The graphics prepared electronically should be submitted in Encapsulated PostScript (EPS).



Bibliographical references should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper. In the text, the references must be indicated by number(s) in square brackets in line with the text

Please, ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list and vice versa. Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list.

Preparation of accepted manuscripts

Authors will be asked to adapt their manuscripts using AGT’s document class. The AGT style file package (including detailed instructions for LaTeX preparation) can be downloaded from this link. This package contains three files: AGT.cls, template.tex and agtlogo.eps. All files must be placed in the same computer folder. Authors are asked to open the file template.tex in a LaTeX editor and fill in the file with the contents of their paper.

Source Files

Authors will be asked to upload the LaTeX source file of their manuscript written using AGT document class by means of the Online Submission System of the journal (


One set of page proofs (as PDF files) will be sent by e-mail to authors. Please use this proof only for checking the typesetting, editing, completeness and correctness of the text, tables and figures. Significant changes to the article as accepted for publication will only be considered at this stage with permission from the Editor. Authors will be asked to make their corrections within 72 hours.

Authors can annotate their corrections directly in the PDF file; to do this you will need to download Adobe Reader version 7 (or higher) available free from

If you do not wish to use the PDF annotations function, you may list them in a PDF file and send us them by our Online system. Please list your corrections quoting line number.  Please check carefully before replying, as inclusion of any subsequent corrections cannot be guaranteed. Proofreading is solely your responsibility. Note that we will proceed with the publication of your article if no response is received.

Digital Object Identifier

When the editing process is finished, your paper will be assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to provide a resolvable persistent network link to current information about your paper. Therefore, it is an ideal medium for citing a document, particularly 'Articles in press' because they have not yet received their full bibliographic information.
