I need something that gives me the following functionality:
- 2 column
- journal style
- natbib or other automatic parsing of .bib file with hyperlinks
- numbered bibliography items and citations, i.e. instead of [Author et. al, 2008] I want to see  or [2,5] if there were two citations together for something, etc.
- multiple authors each with multiple affiliations, where affiliation notations (number or symbols) show as superscript after the authors name
- proper keywords notation
- proper abstract section, either 1 column or full width
I know there has to be something out there that fits these requirements, but I have no idea where to look, or what to use as I am fairly new to latex.
I've looked into the
authblk package, but it doesn't seem to work with the only class I was vaguely familiar with, a class that isn't supported and whose successor fails to compile even a simple document I create, so I want to work with something else.
Recommendations would be very much appreciated, thanks!
