About

A generic starting template for writing research papers.

Checkout this repository using the following command to ensure that the git submodules are loaded properly. I use Ben Ransford's excellent Makefile.

git clone --recursive git@github.com:rjwalls/paper-template.git

You'll want to change the remote URL using:

git remote set-url origin git@github.com:USERNAME/NEW-REPO-NAME.git
git push -u origin master

Preparing the Camera Ready

The following are miscellaneous code snippets that might be useful when preparing the camera ready.

Balance Columns

Use \vfill\eject to force content to the next column. This is especially useful for balancing out the references on the final page. Just make sure to edit the .BBL file (you may want to move the BBL contents to the main.tex file because the BBL isn't tracked in the repository).

Embed Fonts

Use:

ps2pdf -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress paper.pdf paper_camera.pdf

Check the results with (look for the emb column):

pdffonts paper_camera.pdf

Note, you can get pdffonts from Poppler and Homebrew using:

brew install poppler

Make PS from PDF

pdf2ps paper_camera.pdf paper_camera.ps

Make single TeX source file

Removes comments too!

latexpand paper.tex > paper_camera.tex

Get latexpand here.

Gotchas

Make sure to have a reference cited in your .tex file (in-text citation, e.g. \cite{Walls:2011a}) otherwise this template will not compile, even if you have entries in your bib file.
