I noticed that many, if not all, journals have two main type of papers:
- A short self-contained original research article of 10 pages or less, focusing on a particular result that does not provide enough material for a full-length contribution.
- Full-length original research article of more than 10 pages.
What is the actual difference between the two? What does does not provide enough material for a full-length contribution mean? In particular, I have a paper which is (or can be easily made) 10 pages. How should I know if it qualifies as a note or an original article?
Note that in most journals there are original contributions with less pages than some papers appearing as notes.
There are few other related questions, but none really answers (as far as I have checked) these issues. I am talking about applied maths,TCS.
