Preparing your paper using LaTeX

If you did not use LATEX before, it may be a good time to learn it. LaTeX is a set of convenient macros to the more general programming language called TEX.
TeX and LaTeX were created specifically to typset scientific documents but evolved and now support vast range of applications ranging from linguistics to music notation. And, frankly, while there are not easy to master, there is nothing else so flexible and powerful to compete with this freely available software.

Elsevier provides a document class (elsart.cls) which extends and slightly modifies the default mark-up used by LaTeX. It is also very well documented in the Elsevier documents at Templates and examples of papers are available for different reference styles. Also BibTeX style files are provided.

Papers to be published in Microelectronics Engineering require small modification of the generic elsart.cls class. This is accomplished by changing the

and the meeths.cls document class will read in the standard elsart.cls automatically. Using the \documentclass{meeauth} will allow you to have a good estimate of the total page count of your paper. For the purpose of review, you are encouraged to submit papers in the doublespaced version using elsart. It will make it easier for reviewers to mark their comments and corrections. Switching between final look ( meeths.cls ) style and the review style is tryvial, just use the
as the first line for doublespaced version and
for final volume estimate. If you do not have privileges to install documentclass files (meeths.cls and elsart.cls) in the default TeX/LaTeX location on your computer, you can always place them in the same directory in which you keep the document to be worked on. The location of important files and examples is given below:

  • meeauth.txt -- short documentation on how to use the documentclass for the journal,
  • meeauth.cls -- document class which slightly modifies the standard Elsevier Science document class: elsart.cls file (you need it too!!!). The markup in your document will be exactly the same as for the popular elsart style used with Elsevier journals,
  • Extensive documentation on how to prepare LATEX documents for publishing with Elsevier is available from:

If you are not comfortable with LaTeX, organizers will help you to convert your manuscript to the form required.
