About The Fibonacci Quarterly
The Fibonacci Quarterly
is normally published four times a year: in February,
May, August, and November.
The primary function of the journal is to serve as a focal
point for widespread interest in the
Fibonacci numbers (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89,...)
and related numbers, especially with respect to new results,
research proposals, challenging problems, and innovative
proofs of old ideas.
The Fibonacci Quarterly
seeks articles that are intelligible, yet stimulating, to its readers,
most of whom are university teachers and students.
These articles should be lively and well motivated,
with new ideas that develop enthusiasm for number sequences
or the exploration of number facts. Illustrations and tables
should be wisely used to clarify the ideas of the manuscript.
Unanswered questions are encouraged, and a complete list of
references is absolutely necessary.
The journal contains two problem columns, one for Elementary
Problems and one for Advanced Problems.
Problems from the elementary column are maintained in an
Solutions can be found in the printed issues of the journal,
approximately one year after the appearance of the problem,
together with the names of the people who solved the problem
correctly. The best solution to each problem from those submitted is published
in the journal.

Submitting an Article
Articles should be submitted in the format of the current issue
of The Fibonacci Quarterly. They should be typewritten or reproduced
typewritten copies, that are clearly readable, double spaced with wide margins
and on only one side of the paper. The full name and address of the
author must appear at the beginning of the paper directly under the title.
Illustrations should be carefully drawn in India ink on separate sheets of
bond paper or vellum, approximately twice the size they are to appear in print.
Since the Fibonacci Association has adopted standard
definitions for the Fibonacci and Lucas
sequences, these definitions must be used and need not be a part of the paper.
One to three complete
AMS classification numbers
must be given
directly after the references or on the bottom of the last page.
Papers without classification numbers will be returned.
