I have been looking for modern LaTeX templates, and have found several that I like but only from pdf-finished versions. All the LaTeX templates I could find from previous responses where still with the old LaTeX fonts.

More specifically, does someone knows where can I access the template for a similar kind of design: http://politicalscience.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/documents/KarlEoE.pdf or http://pubs.aeaweb.org/doi/pdfplus/10.1257/jep.27.4.3

If you look closely at these links, you willl notice that these more recent LaTeX publications have been using a more grayish font, does anyone know what font color should I be using to obtain that tone?



  • These documents were not even produced with LaTeX. If you look at the meta data you will find for "Oil-Led Development", that it was made with "3B2 Total Publishing System 7.51c/W" and "A Century of US Central Banking" is created by "PDFplus". May 4 '14 at 15:49

  • @HenriMenke: How is some randomly editable PDF metadata a proof for your claim "These documents were not even produced with LaTeX" ?!? Jul 6 '15 at 9:25

If you search for keywords journal of economic perspectives latex a package called vertex is cited where you can introduce a style file for the link. And also some cite sw55jep.sty.
