Bookdown contest submission: a live example for Elsevier academic journals
<h1>bookdown-elsevier</h1>

<h2>Highlights</h2>

<ul>
<li>Write academic papers of Elsevier journals with R markdown syntax.</li>
<li>A live example is provided. I published it TODAY!</li>
<li>Create multiple file formats, including .pdf, single .html, gitbook, .md, .epub, docx.</li>
</ul>

<h2>Introduction</h2>

<p>It is today that one of my academic manuscripts is published on <em>Agricultural and Forest Meteorology</em>, one of the top journals in my scientific research area. This paper is the first paper of mine written in R bookdown environment from the preparation to the publication. Hooray! Now it is time to share its bookdown files.</p>

<p>Elsevier is one of the world's major providers of scientific, technical, and medical information. Elsevier owns  2500 journals, which is why I would like to share my bookdown manuscript for re-use.</p>

<h2>An Example with Its Repo</h2>

<p>The example is the paper I have just published TODAY. It is open-access. Users could either see it <a href="https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168192318302880">online</a> or download the <a href="https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168192318302880/pdfft?md5=468fc112db3ae34ee56c2bfc1e802739&amp;pid=1-s2.0-S0168192318302880-main.pdf">pdf version</a>. Before the publication, a version with numbered lines is recommended for reviewers, which looks like this:</p>

<p><img src="https://github.com/pzhaonet/bookdown-elsevier/raw/master/showcase/elsevier_01.png" alt="" /><br/></p>

<p><img src="https://github.com/pzhaonet/bookdown-elsevier/raw/master/showcase/elsevier_02.png" alt="" /><br/></p>

<p><img src="https://github.com/pzhaonet/bookdown-elsevier/raw/master/showcase/elsevier_05.png" alt="" /><br/></p>

<p><img src="https://github.com/pzhaonet/bookdown-elsevier/raw/master/showcase/elsevier_08.png" alt="" /><br/></p>

<p><img src="https://github.com/pzhaonet/bookdown-elsevier/raw/master/showcase/elsevier_23.png" alt="" /><br/></p>

<p>It is produced by my bookdown project, which is available on the <a href="https://github.com/pzhaonet/bookdown-elsevier">GitHub Repo</a>. You could view the .docx, .epub, .html, .pdf, and .tex as well.</p>

<p>I should mention that you will fail in creating the book if you only download the repo and build it with R bookdown. You could see that in 'index.Rmd' there is a line which calls an R script:</p>

<pre><code>source('scripts/paper.R')
</code></pre>

<p>paper.R processes my data and creates the data and figures for the manuscript. I would not like to share paper.R at the moment. Anyway, you could get an impression how the pdf is created from the .Rmd files even without seeing paper.R.</p>

<h2>Technical details</h2>

<p>Elsevier provides a <a href="https://www.elsevier.com/authors/author-schemas/latex-instructions">LaTeX template</a> which is free for using. I modified it as 'tex/template.tex', i.e. something was moved from the original LaTeX template to the yaml of 'index.Rmd'. Users could simply compare them and then get an idea how to convert a LaTeX template into a bookdown template.</p>

<p>Any suggestions are welcome. Just PR the repo!</p>
