Philosophy of CODEE Journal

For more information, please see CODEE Journal Aims and Scope page.

Who Can Submit?

Anyone may submit an original content to be considered for publication in CODEE Journal provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors are the owners of the copyrights to their works (an exception in the non-academic world to this might exist if the authors have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer). There are no author processing charges, submission fees, or publication charges associated with publication in CODEE.

General Submission Rules

Submitted material cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Note that inclusion in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to CODEE Journal, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at CODEE Journal. If you have concerns about the submission terms for CODEE Journal, please contact the editors.

To begin the submission process, click on the Submit Article link in the navigation bar on the left. This web site will walk you through a four-step process to submit your manuscript. Only one primary submission file (your compiled PDF file) is accepted during part four of this process. However, after clicking on the Submit button, you will have the opportunity to upload additional files to accompany your manuscript. These files could be videos, animations, handouts, homework questions, assessment questions, software (for example, Mathematica notebooks, Maple notebooks, Matlab m-files, ODEToolkit save-files) to accompany your manuscript. Where possible, the file format for these types of attachments should allow for other instructors to easily use and adapt them. For example, if set of homework questions is created using LaTeX, the original TeX source file should be uploaded instead of the compiled PDF version.

Formatting Requirements

To be considered for publication, all submissions must be formatted using the CODEE Journal LaTeX style files. These style files and sample documents for the CODEE Journal are located here. Additional formatting guidelines are provided in a sample document that accompanies the Scholarship @ Claremont LaTeX style file.

During the submission process, only the compiled PDF file will be uploaded to this site. If the paper is accepted for publication, the editors will request all of the LaTeX source files and graphics files that were necessary to generate the finished PDF document.

The use of color graphics, images and other visual elements is strongly recommended. However, color graphics should be designed with appropriate contrast so that they can be rendered well on black and white printers. All graphics files should be uploaded together with the manuscript during the submission process (see below). Vector art formats such as encapsulated PostScript (EPS) or Adobe Illustrator (AI) are preferred to raster art formats such as JPEG, GIF or TIFF. For more information, please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vector_art.

See Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for details on how your final manuscript should be prepared and formatted. Although bepress can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to produce an electronic version of the article as a high-quality PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) file, or a Microsoft Word, WordPerfect or RTF file that can be converted to a PDF file.

It is understood that the current state of technology of Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) is such that there are no, and can be no, guarantees that documents in PDF will work perfectly with all possible hardware and software configurations that readers may have.
