How to Write Journal Articles Using LaTeX

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

I want to write journal articles with a different text editing software because I understand that they are much more able to do more complex and mathematical things better than Word or other common text-editing software. It seems LaTeX will be an ideal candidate. Could you please give me a brief guideline to follow when writing journal articles in LaTeX? This will get me off to a good start, and then I will continue from there to more advance features.

How to Write Journal Articles Using LaTeX


Hello Alex!

LaTex is not a word processor like MS Word.  It doesn’t focus on the formatting. It focuses more on getting the right content. This is a document preparation system for high quality typesetting. We can also use this for publishing or clerical works.

Same procedure in creating a new document in MS Word.

1. Go to File >> New >> create file name (i.e. First and it will give .tex extensions)

2.  You just need to type these codes in the window (in our scenario First.tex).

documentclass[lipt] {article}              

begin {document}

                This will produce textit{italicized} text.

                This will produce textbf{bold-texts} text.

                This will produce textac{small-texts} text.

begin {document}

***Then look for and click “QuickBuild” to show output.

LaTex is similar to programming languages IDE (integrated Development Environment). If you’re familiar with Java-Eclispe or Visual Basic there’s a button to execute to show the output of the project.
