Download
 imsartprelims.zip

Setup

  • unpack .zip file;
  • install imsartprelims.sty, imslogo.eps, imslogo.pdf in your TeX system (suggested directory: imsart);
  • use the file coll-prelims-template.tex to start your IMS Collections prelim pages as a template;
  • use the file coll-prelims-sample.tex as a reference for how to prepare a frontmatter of your article;

We will assume that .tex filename is coll-prelims.tex in the examples below.

Preliminary steps

The following rules must be kept to prepare ToC and contributors list automatically:

  • all articles must be prepared with imsart package at least version 2006/08/23;
  • the information for the list of contributors must be included in all files:
    \contributor{Author, F.}{Some University}
  • if article was uploaded to arXiv, an arXiv id must be supplied in article .tex file:
    \arxiv{math.PR/0000000}
  • use of hyperref package is recommended;

Title and copyright pages

Code for these pages should look like this:

\documentclass[coll]{imsart}

\volumetitle{Volume Title}
\volume{00}
\pubyear{0000}

\begin{document}

\begin{titlepage}
\editor{Some Editor, Editor}
\end{titlepage}

\begin{copyrightpage}
\LCCN{0000000000}
\ISBN{0-000000-00-0}
\serieseditor{Name Surname}
\end{copyrightpage}

LCCN and ISBN numbers must be obtained from IMS office.

Contents

To prepare a table of contents you must:

  • copy all .aux files of articles to working directory. All articles must be compiled with imsart package version starting from 2006/08/23. We will refer to those files as chapter1.tex, chapter2.tex,...;
  • create a file files.txt with the filenames in correct order (you could do it with simple command dir /b *.aux > files.txt ). The contents of files.txt must be as follows:
    chapter1.aux
    chapter2.aux
    chapter3.aux
    
  • add (or uncomment) the following lines to your .tex file (coll-prelims.tex):
    \begin{files}
    \filelist{files.txt}
    \end{files}
    
  • compile .tex file. A file coll-prelims.tob will appear. Insert contents of this file into your .tex file:
    \begin{contents}[none]
    
    \contentsline{begintocitem}{}{}
    \contentsline{arxiv}{math.PR/0000001}{}
    \contentsline{jobname}{chapter1}{}
    \contentsline{title}{Title of Chapter 1}{1}
    \contentsline{author}{First Author, Second Author and Third Author }{1}
    \contentsline{endtocitem}{}{}
    
    ...
    \end{contents}
    
  • edit contents if required. You could add parts with commands
    \contentsline{section}{Part A}{}
  • pdf linking of contents lines to articles could be obtained by replacing key none with:
    • file - ToC will be linked to filenames;
    • arxiv - ToC will link via arxiv numbers;
    • doi - ToC will link via doi numbers;
  • environment \begin{files}...\end{files} could be removed from the .tex file.

Preface

Code for the Preface should look like this:

\begin{preface}

\begin{frontmatter}
\title{Preface}
\end{frontmatter}
\thispagestyle{plain}

Text...

\end{preface}

Contributors

To prepare a "Contributors to this volume" you must:

  • run a MakeIndex program on the file coll-prelims.idx. You will get file coll-prelims.ind;
  • Insert contents of this file into your .tex file:
    \begin{contributors}
    \begin{theindex}
    
      \item Author, F., \textit {Some University}
      \item Author, S., \textit {Some University}
      \item Author, T., \textit {Another University}
    
    \end{theindex}
    
    \end{contributors}
    

Uploading IMS Collections volume files to the arXiv

The following procedure is suggested for the uploading of entire IMS Collections volume to arXiv:

  • Upload each article of the volume to arXiv;
  • Get the arXiv id for each article, insert it into .tex files with command \arxiv{math.PR/0000000}, recompile the files and reupload the files to arXiv (arXiv id number will appear on copyright lines);
  • Prepare the coll-prelims.tex file as described above. Use the hyperref package and the key arxiv
    \begin{contents}[arxiv]
  • upload the coll-prelims.tex to arXiv;
  • ToC in this file will be hyperlinked to the articles in arXiv;
