# Extra blank page with Bayesian Analysis journal style file

See the following MWE, which uses the Bayesian Analysis journal style file..

\documentclass[bib]{ba}
\inserttype[ba0001]{article}
\begin{document}
\title[Short Version]{Long Version}

\maketitle
\begin{abstract}
foo
\end{abstract}
\end{document}


This generates a two page PDF for me. If I remove the blank line, or add a % on the blank line, this becomes one page. This seems like surprising behavior to me. Can anyone tell me if this is a bug, and if not, how should I work around it?

• @HarishKumar If you remove the blank line, do you get one page? – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 22:40
• @HarishKumar yes, the question is why it goes from two pages to one page. My MWE may have been a little too minimal. – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:17
• @HarishKumar Sorry, my long and short was transposed. I've fixed it now. – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:19
• You get one page at the beginning with the long title and not much else. Then the second page starts with the short title. – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:21
• @HarishKumar You're right. My bad. Now, when I remove that space, the title disappears altogether. Do you get that too? – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:30

Try this:

\documentclass[bib]{ba}
\inserttype[ba0001]{article}
\begin{document}
\title[Short Version]{Long Version}       %% this line
\author{faheem}

\maketitle

\footnotetext[1]{Affiliation First Author}    %% this added.
\renewcommand{\thefootnote}{\arabic{footnote}}   %% this may be needed.
\begin{abstract}
foo
\end{abstract}

\end{document}


What went wrong?

1. The title should be

\title[Short article title]{Long title for title page of article insert}


Note the brackets around short title.

2. The author should be

 \author{authors}{their details line \snms etc}

3. \ead[label=e1]{faheem@faheem.info}} shouldn't have label but a footnotemark
• I see. So that extra footnote stuff makes a difference? – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:35
• @FaheemMitha Yes don't use labels – user11232 Apr 13 '14 at 23:40
• Ok. I guess this is usage error, then. I was using an earlier style, and I guess I didn't change properly to the style. Sorry for the noise, and thanks for setting me straight. – Faheem Mitha Apr 13 '14 at 23:46
• @FaheemMitha It certainly looks like usage error :( – user11232 Apr 13 '14 at 23:47
