ENGINEERING LEADERSHIP REVIEW — LATEX TEMPLATES & SCRIPTS

This repository contains information on the LaTeX templates used to compile articles and whole issues of ELR.

Requirements

  • A LaTeX distribution. This contains the basic programs that process LaTeX source files, as well as packages, styles, classes and other add-ons. The recommended distribution is Tex Live [1], but others may also work.
  • The following LaTeX packages, which will either be installed with the LaTeX distribution, or can be installed using a package manager:
    • bibunits
    • calc
    • caption
    • changepage
    • charter
    • fancyhdr
    • fontenc
    • geometry
    • hyperref
    • lmodern
    • multicol
    • natbib
    • tikz
    • titlesec
    • titletoc
    • watermark
  • The contents of this repostitory, especially:
    • elr.cls : the file defining the ELR document class.
    • elr-issue, elr-proof : scripts for compiling an issue or article.
    • images : a directory with images required by all issues of ELR.

Other files

  • example : an example issue of ELR, with three articles.
  • article-01 : an example article, 3000 words long.
  • lipsum-1000 : 1000 words of 'lorem ipsum' placeholder text.

Usage

Run the script elr-issue or elr-proof to generate a PDF. For documentation on what these scripts do, see the comments in them, or run them without any arguments.

Structure

elr.cls defines a new LaTeX document class named 'elr', based on the standard LaTeX 'book' class. In this arrangement, each article in ELR corresponds to a 'chapter' in the book.

For a full issue, a number of items (front-matter before the articles, and back-matter after them) are included or generated automatically. For a proof or preprint, the entire document consists of one article (= LaTeX chapter) with no front- or back-matter
