LaTeX Style Files

Below are the links to download our LaTeX style files for our Foundations and Trends® and Research Journals. Consult the instructions, download the zipped file for the journal you are writing for below, and unpack into your normal LaTeX installation.

Note that there are extra instructions for creating a bibliography file at the bottom of this page.

Bibliography file

It is important that the bibliographic information is entered in the proper, structured format. We recommend using a separate bibliography file (also called “bibliographic database”), instead of entering the references directly in the LaTeX sourcefile. Not only does this make it easier for you to maintain the references it also ensures that they are in a structure that is suitable for our conversion processes.
Please, enter each bibliographic item according to the following structure, in the same order and using the same lettercase:

General syntax
This is the general syntax for entries in the bibliographic database:
@entry_type{key,
field_name={field text},
..
field_name={field text},
}

Example article:
@article{vetracabitari97,
author={J. Ventura-Travesset and G. Caire and E. Biglieri and G. Taricco},
title={Impact of diversity reception on fading channels with coded modulation},
journal={IEEE Trans. on Communications},
year={1997},
volume={45},
number={5},
pages={563-572},
}

In the above example, the first word, prefixed with@@, describes the 'entry_type' (in this case, article). The entry_type is followed by the reference information for that entry, enclosed in curly braces{ }. After the first opening brace { we find the key by which the reference is used in the LaTeX document, referred by the \cite command. This key may be any combination of letters, numerals and hyphens or dots, except commas. Please note that this key is also case-sensitive: if "vetracabitari97" is used in the bibliographic file, and "Vetracabitari97" in the \cite command, problems will arise during conversion and DOI-look-up processes.
