Scripts and LaTeX files for assistance in writing papers.

Contents

  • bib_update.py Search a bibtex file and query ADS to update arXiv records w/ published references
  • bibcode_convert.py Convert long-form journal names into the ApJ short form requivalents. (IN PROGRESS)
  • check_ms.sh Run through the final manuscript checks (spelling, complete sentences).
  • macro_check.py Figure out which macros to copy from privon_astro.sty into a manuscript for self-contained submission
  • privon_astro.sty A collection of macros for LaTeX documents
  • punctuation_check.py Simple checking for the existence of sentence-ending punctuation at the end of lines in LaTeX files, to catch incomplete sentences.
  • readability.py Compute the Flesch–Kincaid readability tests on a given text. Requires the textstat python module.
  • single_pdf.py Combine multiple pdfs into a single file. (Useful for proposals which lack TeX templates).

check_ms.sh tries to run proselint, so install that if you would like writing commentary.
