Preparing documents with LaTeX
Welcome to the Elsevier LaTeX pages. These pages are intended to support journal authors who are writing their manuscripts in LaTeX. Please note that not all journals accept LaTex submissions and you should check the Guide for Authors of your journal before proceeding.
The first linked page is a general introduction to preparing journal articles with LaTeX. This includes the support provided during the manuscript submission and review process. Authors are advised to read this page first.
The next page is a full description of Elsevier's own journal document class, elsarticle.cls, its supporting packages and the many features that this class offers to authors. While use of elsarticle.cls is not mandatory, it is recommended.
The final page is a description of additional features that can be used when preparing camera-ready copy (CRC) articles.
Note: authors of IFAC meeting papers should visit the IFAC website for instructions and relevant resources.
