LaTeX Submissions

Please read the documentation accompanying the AMS LaTeX files and the instructions below. If your question is not answered in the documentation, instructions, or FAQs, please contact

The AMS LaTeX support team is available to help resolve issues related to the use of AMS LaTeX files for submissions to the AMS and the submission of AMS LaTeX files to the Editorial Manager system. Please note that we are unable to devote resources to answering other general LaTeX questions or to troubleshoot issues with non-AMS templates.

Most common problems when submitting to Editorial Manager:

  • Missing files: Be sure to include all template and source files when uploading your files to the EM system, including ametsoc.cls/ametsoc.sty, ametsoc2014.bst/ametsoc.bst, and all figure files.
  • Incorrect item type: All figure files should be designated with EM’s “Rendered Figure” item type. All LaTeX files uploaded to EM must have the item type “LaTeX File (.tex, .sty, .cls, .bst, .bib).”
  • Duplicate files: If you upload your LaTeX source files, do not upload a PDF of your LaTeX paper.
  • Incorrect file type: Do not upload a .bbl file. You must either upload the .bib file or the contents of the .bbl file should be pasted into your .tex file.
  • Directory paths in figures: All directory paths need to be removed from figure names (e.g., \includegraphics[width=28pc]{fig1.pdf}, NOT \includegraphics[width=28pc]{myfigures/fig1.pdf}).
  • Extra periods or underscores in figure file names: All periods in figure file names should be removed, except for those preceding the file extension. The EM system will read anything after the first period as the file extension. Therefore, figure names with additional periods will prevent your PDF from building properly. Underscores should also be removed, as these can sometimes be read as math commands, causing an error and preventing your PDF from building.
