Author Instructions


Read our scope of research to ensure that your work is relevant to our community. If do not find your topic of interest in the list, and you still think it is relevant to our community, please reach out to us.

Types of Papers

Anoma R&D publishes papers that may:

  • describe original technical work,
  • survey a particular area of interest, or
  • present a tutorial on subjects within our scope.

Our ART repository not only values novel contributions but also accepts preliminary findings. As a pre-print server, it provides researchers the opportunity to share their initial results, which may later be refined for submission to peer-reviewed journals or academic conferences.

In academic publishing, a preprint is a version of a scholarly or scientific paper that precedes formal peer review and publication in a peer-reviewed scholarly or scientific journal.

Technical Papers

Technical papers articulate a clear goal which could range from presenting a technical concern, idea, or model pertinent to programming languages, compiler optimizations, cryptographic protocols, and more.

These papers should be well-informed, up-to-date, and accurate reflections of the knowledge base of Anoma researchers.

Examples of technical papers include:

Survey Papers

Survey papers provide an accessible overview of a topic, compiling ideas in a manner which illuminates their relations. Although they do not necessarily present new scientific findings, we value survey papers that offer novel perspectives on existing work and aid a reader in navigating the existing literature.

Examples of survey papers include:

Tutorial Papers

Tutorial papers focus on applying existing software tools or libraries to tackle relevant problems. These papers, while not required to offer new scientific insights, should weave together concepts in a compelling way that engages readers and provides a comprehensive guide to recent developments.

Examples of tutorial papers include:

Article Length

We do not impose strict limits on the length of submissions. However, the length of your submission should be dictated by clarity and conciseness. To give you a rough idea:

  • Typical papers range from 5-10 pages.
  • Survey papers often span 15-25 pages.
  • Tutorial papers might be between 10-20 pages.

For Technical Reports with Artifacts

Authors are encouraged to supplement their documents with web-accessible supporting materials, including but not limited to:

  • Source code
  • Jupyter notebooks

A good artifact is a minimal working example to demonstrate the key ideas presented in the document. In coding, this means that the code should be written cleanly, documented clearly, and compile and run successfully.
