I am employing LaTeX to draft a scientific manuscript for publication.

The journal specifications are that main text be double-spaced (\linespread{2}) and that references and figure/table captions be single-spaced (\linespread{1}).

However, when I do this, references are not single-spaced.

I am using the ACM bibliography style.

Any thoughts?

  • 1) double-spaced is not equivalent to \linespread{2} – see the commented code of setspace . (2) It's better to load setspace and use \doublespacing and singlespacing directives (or the singlespace environment). – Bernard Mar 4 at 15:56
  • @Bernard Thanks! Worked like a charm. – compbiostats Mar 4 at 16:06
