http://www.math.ubbcluj.ro/~nodeacj/editorial_manager.htm

  • The papers submitted for publication should not contain elementary definitions or results in fixed point theory (e.g., contraction mapping, Banach Contraction Principle, Caristi mapping, ...).
  • The Abstract of the paper should not contain citation from the References list; if the author(s) want to cite a paper in the abstract, this must be mentioned in full.
  • The papers submitted for publication should have consistent connections to fixed point theory (e.g., not only a trivial application of a fixed point theorem or a constructed example).
  • The papers submitted for publication should contain relevant examples and/or applications of the presented theories.
  • The papers submitted for publication should not exceed 20 pages, while the References list must contain at most 25-30 titles. Of these, no more than 20% may be author(s)’ s previous works. In some special cases (invited papers, synthesis, ...), the main editors may decide on exemptions.
