I want to work on template for Journal of Network and Computer Applications journal. On the elsdoc at its last page the two-column pre-print format output is as follows:

enter image description here

Its guide advices to use els-as-template that has cas-dc-template.tex file, I believe that is the template. But I was not able to compile the pdflatex cas-dc-template.tex file in order to generate this pre-print manuscript example.

When I run pdflatex cas-dc-template.tex it gives following errors and exits by unable to generate the pdf file:

*geometry* driver: auto-detecting
*geometry* detected driver: pdftex

! LaTeX3 Error: The key 'stm/author/<options>' is unknown and is being
(LaTeX3)        ignored.

For immediate help type H <return>.
 ...

l.80 \author[<aff no>]{<author name>}[<options>]

When I am able to compile it removing the error lines I get a single-column output as follows:

  • It is template that has to be filled with data replacing every < xxx>. For example \author{John Smith} Commented Nov 4, 2022 at 20:22
  • It also gives following error: ! Missing number, treated as zero < l.165 \maketitle. And it does not generate output pdf as double column :-(

I found the working complete-template at overleaf Elsevier's CAS LaTeX Double-Column Template - Overleaf.

Elsevier's CAS LaTeX Double-Column Template Open as Template View Source View PDF Author Elsevier Last Updated 10 months ago License Other (as stated in the work) Abstract cas-sc.cls and cas-dc.cls are the two new class files created for typesetting Elsevier's journal articles which go through Complex Article Service (CAS) workflow.
