I want to make my paper repository a little more readable, so I like to break sections out into separate .tex documents. However, this does not seem to play nice with the IEEE format. How can I get my intro (and subsequent sections) in a separate document and not have a page break before it?

MWE (sorry, just building off their example... super long):

in bare_jrnl.tex:
