Here's a useful and readable guide for would-be authors of journal articles If every author followed this advice they would save themselves, and the IJAM Editor, a great deal of time and effort.  And, in some cases, disappointment:  http://getalifephd.blogspot.hu/2014/05/how-to-publish-article-in-academic.html

Even better is  How to get your writing published in scholarly journals by Linda Olson, a free download from Proofreading Services:  www.proof-reading-services.org/guide/index.html  This is stuffed full of good advice, written by someone who understands the frustrations of being a journal editor.  I particularly like the emphasis on careful observance of the guidance for contributors - very few submissions to IJAM get this right, and some get it so wrong that they bite the dust immediately.  If you want your article to have the best chance of publication, and your Editor to stay sane, read this book!
