The simplest (but not recommended) way to use imsart package is to replace line
\documentclass{article}
with
\documentclass[aap]{imsart}
in your LaTeX document.

Recomended usage of imsart package

Use ims-template.tex as a template. The preamble of your Latex document should look like this:


%Possible keys: aap,aop,aos
\documentclass[aap]{imsart}

\arxiv{math.PR/0000000}

\begin{supplement}[id=suppA]
  \sname{Supplement A}
  \stitle{Title}
  \slink[doi]{COMPLETED BY THE TYPESETTER}
  \sdatatype{.pdf}
  \sdescription{Some text}
\end{supplement}

Reference (hyperlink) to the supplement could be done by the command \ref{suppA}.

Note when preparing the supplementary materials if you are using imsart class you could suppress text Submitted to... with command \setattribute{journal}{name}{}.

Comments

  • option preprint must be used to produce the final version:
    \documentclass[aap,preprint]{imsart};
  • labels T1,t2 are used for thanks;
  • labels e1,e2,e3,u1 are used to print electronic addresses. If hyperref package is used, they will be made into hyperlinks;
