I have just completed work on certain problem that was ignored in applied mathematics but is well developed in pure mathematics for almost 40 years. I mean there are certain formulations that were developed 40 years ago but nobody seriously used them in applied mathematics, I have used those formulations and derived very decent results. To me this is not original work as I have just shown application of certain formulations those were ignored by many.

My papers is of 9 page length and I am confused that in which category should I use it to publish, article or letter ?

    What does it say in the journal's instructions to authors? – ff524 Jun 22 '16 at 2:27
  • @ff524: The journal(Applied Mathematics Letters) use word novelty, but as I said I have shown application of certain formulation which was ignore earlier, so I don't think my work is novel one, but when I look at publications in that journal, my work seems to be better one. – IgotiT Jun 22 '16 at 3:00

  • I don't believe that we can guess which category your particular paper should be categorized into without knowing quite a lot of details about both the paper and the journal. – jakebeal Jun 22 '16 at 7:45

    @IgotiT Have you talked with your advisor? Other colleagues? The journal editor? – jakebeal Jun 22 '16 at 8:31
