I am going to submit a paper to Geombinatorics. I found on their web page to know How to Submit a Manuscript the following:

Your essay should be camera-ready in the following format:

paper: 5.5" by 8.5"; hyphen on; left, right, & top margins: 0.35"; bottom margin: 0.5"; font: Times New Roman scaleable 12 pt (if unavailable, use similar font from Times family); line spacing: single; Start with the title in bold, followed on the next line by the author(s)' name(s), followed by the address and e-mail. Please note that thanks to MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS, ZENTRALBLATT FÜR MATHEMATIK, MATHEMATICS ABSTRACTS, many more colleagues throughout the world will learn about our geombinatorial games.

Actually I'm still confused with the above instructions. That would be great if someone could provide me a template latex codes in order get a standard format of Geombinatorics submission. I post here a `minimal example' to describe what format I have at the moment

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra,amssymb,latexsym, amscd,amsthm}


\begin{document}
\title{\textbf{\MakeUppercase{The paper title}}}
\author{Author 1\\
Address of author 1\\
e-mail address: author1@gmail.com \\
Author 2\\
Address of author 2\\
e-mail address: author2@gmail.com 
}

\date{}
\maketitle 
\abstract {Abstract goes here.}\\
\noindent {Keywords: }
\section{Introduction}

\section{Main Result}
\section*{Acknowledgement}
\begin{thebibliography}{99}

\end{thebibliography}
\end{document}

    You can manage the paper size and margins using geometry package. http://www.ctan.org/pkg/geometry – Pouya Jul 14 '14 at 16:38
  • I downloaded the con­tents of this pack­age but still don't how to manage the paper size and margins. Can you give me some codes? – Gooner Jul 14 '14 at 17:19

    \usepackage{mathptmx} for the Times font, \usepackage[rmargin=0.35in, lmargin=0.35in,tmargin=0.35in,bmargin=0.5in,paperwidth=5.5in,paperheight=8.5in]{geometry} for the geometry package – user31729 Jul 14 '14 at 17:30

This could be a possible setup, but I wonder a little bit about the paper size.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra,amssymb,latexsym, amscd,amsthm}
\usepackage{mathptmx}
\usepackage{setspace}%
\usepackage[rmargin=0.35in,lmargin=0.35in,tmargin=0.35in,bmargin=0.5in,paperwidth=5.5in,paperheight=8.5in]{geometry}

\author{Author 1\\

e-mail address: author2@gmail.com

Thanks to the OP's comment, it is better to use article instead of scrartcle class.

  • Many thanks for your help @Christian Hupfer. The problem with format is solved. But other small issue comes out: the page numbers weren't be showed. – Gooner Jul 15 '14 at 17:01
  • @Gooner: One problem is the definitely the very small bottom margin. I try to correct it. – user31729 Jul 15 '14 at 17:52
  • If you use article class then the problem of pagenumbering is solved. – Gooner Jul 16 '14 at 5:44
  • @Gooner: Yes, you are right. I will update my answer. – user31729 Jul 16 '14 at 6:11
