With this Living Reviews LATEX Template we want to address the following two issues which on occasion show up when the authors write their articles, and the Living Reviews Editorial Staff prepare and process the submitted articles for publication:
They would also like to have a template at hand which they can actually base their article upon by just using it as a skeleton for their own article. For this they are free to download the source code of this template.
Therefore we list here some of the environments which are known to be digested by the converter without problems, and also known sources of problems. If the authors are aware of these restrictions, they can – with little effort – adapt their LATEX code and (in most cases) still get the results they want.
However, this template does not and cannot replace a thorough introduction to the LATEX system. But it shows the structure of a complete article and gives examples of LATEX source code for environments which show up naturally in a typical Living Reviews article. The equations, tables, figures, etc. are written in a way to meet both the requirements of the processing software and the style guidelines of Living Reviews.
In order to demonstrate how the results were produced, we list the actual LATEX code next to the results.
A note for the following: If we call an environment supported, we mean that it has proven to be processed by the converter without problems. It does not mean that alternative environments will not be converted correctly. However, they might as well be rejected by the converter which may make revisions of the code by the author or editors necessary. Environments which have shown to cause converter problems are explicitly mentioned.
We also do not want to set restrictive guidelines regarding the actual format of equations etc., and give instructions about grammar, punctuation and spelling. If the author needs some guidance in that respect, especially in the context of scientific articles, we refer to the Physical Review Style and Notation Guide, which can be downloaded from the APS webpages:
