# IEEE Documents as book Chapters

I use the \documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran} which produces neat double-column papers but would like to make a book/monograph that way (a book collection of papers in which individual papers are chapters). Is there a template for that? Thanks.

• The option twocolumn will produce double-column documents in virtually all of the major document classes. – jon May 18 '14 at 18:17
• It doesn't work the same way in other classes. I prefer to retain the IEEE template format. – Nero May 18 '14 at 18:27
• And what is "it"? I assume you can mimic the IEEE format in all the important respects ... and probably with greater ease than forcing a style-option pair meant for a conference paper to turn into a book. (However, I've not used the class myself, so I'm only thinking in terms of the headers/footers and styles for sectional divisions; maybe there are other features you want.) – jon May 18 '14 at 18:36
• @jon, thanks for the help but I am looking for someone familiar with the IEEE template. – Nero May 18 '14 at 20:08
• The reason is that I can have a book yet publish chapters as separate papers on ArXiv. – Nero May 19 '14 at 1:09

If I understood the question correctly, then you can use combine package. This is the sample code to create collection of papers...[deleted].

Edited

redefine section command to behave like a chapter.

Main document

\documentclass[colclass=IEEEtran,12pt, a4paper]{combine}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{ifthen}

\renewcommand{\section}[1]
{ %
\refstepcounter{section}
\ifthenelse{\equal{\thesection}{I}}{}{\cleardoublepage}
\twocolumn[ %
\begin{@twocolumnfalse} %
\huge \textbf{Chapter \thesection. \\ [0.5\baselineskip]#1\\ [\baselineskip]}
\end{@twocolumnfalse} %
]
}

IEEEtran documents

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\section{IEEEtran section 1}
\lipsum[1-5]

\section{IEEEtran section 2}
\lipsum[1-5]

\section{IEEEtran section 3}
\lipsum[1-5]
\end{document}


• How about a Book in that format with the sections as chapters? Thanks. – Nero May 20 '14 at 13:04
• I still not clear about your problem. I've modified the answer – Pattisahusiwa May 21 '14 at 1:09
• Thanks! But not quite it: you need the title of the paper to become chapter not sections. – Nero May 21 '14 at 11:34
• you have mentioned in the previous comment that the section as a chapter. Do you need the chapter in format Chapter xx. Article title or just Article Title like in my previous answer. – Pattisahusiwa May 21 '14 at 13:51
• This is not working at all. I have a structure, \documentclass{book}, with its pagination, tables etc., but would like to integrate all the robustness of IEEE tran. Thanks. – Nero Jun 10 '14 at 8:32
