Please change the length of \leftmargini (for first level of the list),
\leftmarginii (for second level), \leftmarginiii (for third level), so on
and so forth so that it shall start without indentation.  The default
values in article class for single column documents are

 \setlength\leftmargini  {2.5em}
 \setlength\leftmarginii  {2.2em}
 \setlength\leftmarginiii {1.87em}
 \setlength\leftmarginiv  {1.7em}

and the \labelsep is 0.5em.  Better to write your own list macros if you
want problem free typesetting of your serial publications.
