Here we provide a selection of academic journal templates for articles and papers which automatically format your manuscripts in the style required for submission to that journal. Thanks to the partnerships we're building within the publishing community, you can also now submit your paper directly to a number of journals and other editorial and review services via the publish menu in the editor.
This is a template and guide for preparing papers for Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society using the 'mnras' LaTeX package.
See the mnras_template.tex file (included and used by default when opening the template) for a simple template to help you get started.
The mnras_guide.tex file (also included) provides instructions for using the additional features in the document class. This is not a general guide on how to use LaTeX, and nor does it replace the journal's instructions to authors.
Overleaf and Oxford University Press (OUP) have created this template for authors submitting manuscripts to Gigascience, an open access, open data, open peer-review journal focusing on ‘big data’ research from the life and biomedical sciences.
This template allows authors to prepare and edit their manuscripts in the OUP 'contemporary' layout used by Gigascience and other OUP journals.
To begin writing, simply click the Open as Template button, above. Additional guidelines for preparing your submission are included within the template itself. Once your manuscript is ready for submission, simply click "Submit to Journal" in the top bar of the Overleaf editor and follow the instructions provided.
