Where can I find the template for an article with the structure of the IJF?

Attached the link to see an example


You just click on top "download pdf" and automatically will download the article with the format and structured I am looking for.

I tried all the latex templates pages but couldn't find a similar one with the article info and abstract in two columns, the content in full width and again the article in two columns.

Thanks for the support!!!

  • they do list an email-address in the .pdf. Maybe you should contact them?

This guide for authors wishing to submit a paper to the IJF says that is recommended to use elsarticle.cls. There's a link to a LaTeX dedicated page as well.

  • Thanks for the answer but the guidelines for authors and additional info was already checked. No way to find out the exact template.

  • @José elsarticle will not produce the exact output as in the journal, but that's how things work: the copy editors will change some details and produce the final output.

  • On the LaTeX dedicated page it says "Although elsarticle.cls supports most journal styles, it is not possible to match the journal's layout exactly.", so you won't find the exact layout/class/template. If you want to submit an article, you shouldn't even try because "Custom layout will be removed." and " The text should be in single-column format.". If you want it for something else, it's not that much of a problem to replicate the layout.

The preferred template is given on the journal website at https://forecasters.org/ijf/authors/
