Potentially Offensive Material
There is no general rule on what material is appropriate for publication in SIAM publications. However, if an editor believes that the use of some material (text, images, etc.) may offend SIAM readers, there will be an exchange with the author(s) on the need for the particular material and whether alternatives can be identified to express the same results. Unless the author(s) can make convincing arguments that the particular material is essential to convey the scientific contribution, it is expected that the material be replaced prior to review and further consideration for publication.
