How to create my own paper


This projects allows you to:

How it works

The "Deploy on Netlify" button below will do the following:

  1. Create a Git repository under your GitHub account that will contain the paper template and supporting resources.
  2. Set up a continuous publishing process on Netlify that auto-generates the PDF whenever you commit changes to the repository.
  3. Create a "Dashboard" page for the project.

After that you will be able to access a "Dashboard" page that will give you access to the following functionality:

  1. View the latest generated PDF preview of the paper.
  2. Edit the file online using Oxygen XML Web Author.
  3. Download an archive with the paper and all the supporting files.
  4. Navigate to your GitHub repository that contains the paper XML source.


  • The GitHub repository is public by default. You can make it private afterwards.
  • The "Dashboard" page and the generated PDF will be available at a randomly-generated URL that can only be accessed by people who know it. You can change this URL to make it even harder to guess.

Getting started

Perform the following steps:

  1. Click the following button: Deploy to Netlify
  2. Click "Connect to GitHub". If you do not have a GitHub account, you can create one for free.
  3. Choose a name for the repository that will contain your paper XML source.
  4. Click "Save & Deploy"
  5. You will be redirected to the project's Netlify home page. Meanwhile the PDF version of the paper starts to be generated. In approximately one minute your Dashboard will be deployed at the URL "https://<project-id>". You can change this URL in the "Settings" tab.
  6. Open the Dashboard.
  7. You can use the "View on GitHub" link to access the newly created GitHub repository. The repository is public by default. You can go to the Settings tab and make it private.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
