I am creating an internal "toy" journal for the undergraduates of my university. I grabbed a template of a journal available from CTAN in order to make this toy journal.

When trying to build it up, I made a "mother" .tex and put various \include{paper1},...\include{paper i }, ... \include{paper n} to put all submissions together.

However, the titles and authors are being fixed from the first \include{paper1}. Even if I change them in paper 2, they don't display correctly (they display as normal text) and the previous titles/authors keep reappearing on pages.

I would like a way to solve this issue and, if possible, references on how to "build up" something like a journal. Thanks in advance.

    Have you had a look at the combine package? I think that does it. Nov 22, 2016 at 14:33
  • @GarethWalker Thank you for the suggestion. I'm trying to implement the class, but I am having some difficulties. For instance, the following error appears: "! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack size=5000].<to be read again>t \end{align}" whenever I try to include a document. Nov 22, 2016 at 16:22
  • You'll almost certainly need to provide a MWE demonstrating the error before anyone helps. Nov 22, 2016 at 16:36

Based on what's in the combine documentation, the following code includes two papers as a mock-up of conference proceedings with a table of contents:

\title{Proceedings of the ...}
\author{A. N. Editor\thanks{Support ...}}
\section{Editor's introduction} \label{intro} 
In the article by A.~N.~Author on page~\pageref{art1} ...
\coltoctitle{An article}
\coltoctitle{Another article}
Among the many ...

This could be art1.tex:

\title{An article}
My paper.

And this could be art2.tex:

\title{Another article}
My paper.
