I am preparing to submit to a journal using a template downloaded from the "LaTeX" hyperlink at (https://academic.oup.com/bioinformatics/pages/submission_online). This downloads a .zip file called cabios.template.zip.
This .zip file contains .sty files, main.tex file, and main.bib file. It also contains a Sample.pdf file. I am unsure how to convert the main.tex file to look like the Sample.pdf file. So, far, I tried this approach:
pdflatex main bibtex main pdflatex main pdflatex main
The bibtex command resulted in two Errors:
I found no \bibdata command---while reading file main.aux I found no \bibstyle command---while reading file main.aux
It seems the main.bbl file is empty. On another part of their site, they state: "If you use bibtex, please use the bibliography style named natbib.bst". So, I also tried:
pdflatex main bibtex natbib pdflatex main pdflatex main
And received a message:
I couldn't open file name `natbib.aux'
When I try the code above, I am able to generate a file main.pdf. However, it looks different than Sample.pdf, especially with text and corner lines in the margins. I am trying to make sure I use the correct conversion of main.tex to main.pdf, so that I am following the expected format correctly.
Any advice is greatly appreciated (and sorry if this is a newbie question).
