Aims and Scope of the Journal
The journal is primarily concerned with publishing original research
papers. However, a limited number of carefully selected survey or
expository papers will also be included. The mathematical focus of the
journal will be that suggested by the title, research in topology. It
is felt that it is inadvisable to attempt a definitive description of
topology as understood for this journal. Certainly the subject
includes the algebraic, general, geometric, and set-theoretic facets
of topology as well as areas of interaction between topology and other
mathematical disciplines, e.g., topological algebra, topological
dynamics, functional analysis, category theory, etc. Since the roles
of various aspects of topology continue to change, the non-specific
delineation of topics serves to reflect the current state of research
The journal occasionally publishes "Special Issues." Typically these are
centered around a particular topic, research related to the works of an
individual, or papers presented at a focused research conference.
There is a list of
Submission of manuscripts is welcome provided that the manuscript, or
any translation of it, has not been copyrighted or published and is not
being submitted for publication elsewhere. In order to facilitate the
editorial process, authors are asked to submit manuscripts to the editor
listed below whose area of expertise most closely matches the research
topic of the author's manuscript.
In case it is necessary to reassign a paper from
one editor to another, the author will be informed accordingly.
Papers may be submitted to one of the following editors using electronic
Online Submission on the Author's Gateway page for TAIA . This is generally the prefered
method for submissions. Alternately one may
send a PDF or DVI file directly to the relevant editor

Preparation of Manuscripts
Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the instructions
- Manuscripts must be in English.
- If possible, manuscripts should be prepared in a current form of TeX
(currently Latex2e and TeX are preferred), and the PDF, (DVI or PS) files
submitted electronically (the TeX file will be used by the printer). The
Elsevier-LaTeX style package is mainly useful if one wishes to see ╩what
an article might look like when published.
- If a printed (hardcopy) document is submitted, a readable duplicate copy of the manuscript must also be
submitted, and the author should retain a copy of the manuscript.
- Manuscripts must include
- The author's postal address, e-mail address, telephone number and
fax number (if available) also should be included.
- References should be listed alphabetically.
- Individual editors (listed above) may have indicated additional requirements or
information concerning submissions to them.
