JSARA is formatted for publication using the emulateapj package.
We've modified the .sty file to give JSARA headers, and call it jsara.cls. Here is the AASTeX sample
file that authors may wish to start with, here modified to call
in jsara.cls and other smaller changes.
Figures should be submitted in encapsulated postscript, and should
be suitable for publication. Do not include titles on figures. The
Astrophysical Journal Instructions
to Authors does a nice job of describing how to prepare effective
manuscripts and plots, and we recommend authors read those instructions
before beginning to prepare their manuscripts and plots. If unsure
if your plots are suitable for publication, authors are encouraged
to email email@example.com.
The Astrophysical Journal Instructions
to Authors applies for JSARA, so we simply link to that source.
PyPlot is a good, free system for preparing publication quality
- plottest.py (simple Python code to
read file test.dat, make plot fig1.png)
- test.dat (data file - 2 column ASCII
- fig1.png (figure created with above files)
