The American Astronomical Society (AAS) has developed a markup package to assist authors in preparing manuscripts intended for submission to all the AAS-affiliated journals. The journals are the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ), the Astronomical Journal (AJ), ApJ Supplements (ApJS), Letters (ApJL), The Planetary Science Journal (PSJ), and Research Notes of the American Astronomical society (RNAAS). The latest LaTeX classfile is AASTeX v6.3.1 and it can be obtained here. The sample631.tex template uses this classfile to illustrate some of the newer features for submissions to the main Journals. Authors should consult the extensive guide for all the features in AASTeX v6.3.1. Once your manuscript is complete, check the AAS journals pre-submission checklist to make sure you're ready to submit. Then use the "Submit to Journal" option in the Overleaf editor to submit your files directly to the journal for processing. Note that you will still need to log on to the submission site to supply additional meta-data. The transfer to the peer review site can take some time so please be patient. The editorial office will contact you when your submission has been processed and is ready for the final meta-data input. If you're new to LaTeX, check out our free online introduction to help you get started, or please get in touch if you have any questions.
This is an example paper for manuscripts for the journal Solar Physics, downloaded from the journal's support page for LaTeX authors. It contains the basic commands to write an article as well as some explanations for defining equations, figures, tables, and references.
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.
A template for submission to the proceedings for the Summer Student Research Symposium of the Keck North East Astronomy Consortium (KNAC) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. Based largely on AASTeX format.
