I'm looking for LaTeX templates to typeset a working paper in a Oxford journal's preprint style. I'm also looking for BibTeX style files (templates) for Oxford Journal about IT science.

I found this link: http://www.oxfordjournals.org/for_authors/latex.html but it doesn't help much, I can't see anywhere any template (or .sty file) but I can download and work with.

Any ideas, links, help? I'm asking about The Computer Journal from Mathematics & Physical Sciences, here: http://www.oxfordjournals.org/our_journals/computer_journal/about.html. Unfortunately I cant see any .tex or .sty file there which I could use.

On the About page, click Instructions to authors in the right margin. Scroll down the page to PREPARATION AND SUBMISSION OF THE MANUSCRIPT, where you'll find the following:

Papers must be clearly written in English. The text should be presented on A4 or an equivalent size. Please submit your manuscript in Computer Journal format using the LaTeX document preparation system in conjunction with the comjnl.cls file. If this is not possible then please ensure that the manuscript is in single-column format and double line-spaced. Margins of at least 25 mm should be left around all sides of the text. Please number each page but provide a short running title on the title page only. Ensure that any unusual symbols or letters are clearly identifiable. Manuscripts submitted in other journal styles may be returned to you for re-formatting.

The manuscript should contain the following information: the full and a short title, and a complete list of authors, their affiliations and addresses; the main text; all figures and tables, and references. The corresponding author should be identified along with both his/her postal and e-mail addresses, and telephone and fax numbers.

So you want to download this:

This ZIP file contains the document class written for the journal (comjnl.cls), a BibTeX style file (comjnl.bst) and an example .tex file, sample.tex.

  • Many, many thanks! Compiled it with TeXMaker and worked :) Thanks again!
