The geographic scope of this journal is on a par with but disjoint from endeavors such as the Australian Journal of Advanced Nursing, the European Journal of Operational Research, the African Journal in Conflict Resolution, or the American Mathematical Monthly (not to mention Wissenschaftliche Zeitschrift der Pädagogischen Hochschule Halle/Köthen, Revista de la Universidad Nacional de Tucumán, the Moscow Journal of Combinatorics and Number Theory, or the Chicago Journal of Theoretical Computer Science) but is of course subordinate to periodicals such as the Universal Journal of Computer Science.
On the other hand, as regards the thematic coverage, we will publish manuscripts from all areas of science and beyond, including Fuzzy Sets, Cybernetics, Taxiplanie, and Geometric Pattern Matching. Every paper will be reviewed. Instructions: Please stick to the following formatting guidelines. The first line of the title should start 42 millimeters below the top margin. A margin of 1.2 inches must be left between the text and the sides of the paper, except for wide figures and other material that sticks out into the margins. Authors are kindly requested to use a nine-point font for the footnotes. References to the literature should listed at the end, sorted alphabetically by author and numbered consecutively in increasing order starting from 1. Manuscripts must be sent in quadruplicate to the Editor-in-Chief, The Lunatic Journal of Sciences, Günter Rote, Freie Universität Berlin, Institut für Informatik, Takustraße 9, 14195 Berlin, Germany, accompanied by a digital version in Microsoft Word on a 5 1/4 inch diskette. Failure to put the double-dots in the address into the correct places over the letters will immediately disqualify papers without further consideration of their merits. Submissions must include a cheque over 31 (thirty-one) European Union Currency Unit Euros, payable to The Lunatic Journal of Sciences, c/o Professor G. Rote, Institut für Informatik, Takustraße 9, 14195 Berlin, Germany, in order to defray processing and manipulation costs. In this matter, we will practice a more lenient attitude towards spelling errors. A larger sum will expedite the handling of the paper. Submitted material will not be returned in any case. Authors should therefore kindly keep a backup copy of their manuscript if they want to consult it while it is being reviewed, or when they plan on still wanting to read the paper even if it is rejected from this journal.
For accepted papers, printing charges on a per-page basis will be levied, which are up to negotiations. The first-named author gets 16 free offprints, the second-named author will get 8 offprints, the third-named author would get 4 offprints, and so on. All authors beyond the fifth have to share the remaining offprint. Thirty-two offprints of anonymous papers will be given away to a charitable purpose.
