ACS Publications


American Chemical Society (ACS) Publications allows authors to submit their manuscripts formatted in LaTeX to any of their journals. For this, they provide a demo template which contains the structure and reference style they would like for submissions.

The demo template provided here includes the achemso class, bibliography style, documentation and an example template with associated bibliography. While the demo template is extensively commented, any additional configuration options you need or problems you may experience are likely to be solved by reading the included achemso.pdf documentation. The demo template features a single-column layout for easy reviewing and all of the document elements that are typically found in journal articles: article information, author information, tables, figures, equations, references and more.

ACS Publications has two options for submitting to their journals. The first involves submitting your compiled PDF as the manuscript along with the TeX files used to compile it in a ZIP archive. Alternatively, you can submit the TeX files only and have their automated system create the manuscript PDF for you. For more information on this and other guidelines see the Preparing and Submitting Manuscripts Using TeX/LaTeX page on their website.
