When visiting the website (below) I found the following information on how
to use a Latex template for Marine Pollution Bulletin manuscript.  I don't
understand any of the computer  language used Can somebody explain in plain
language how to use the template?




Direc-tory tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/elsarticle

This is Elsevier's new document class for typeset journal articles,

elsarticle.cls.  It is now accepted for submitted articles, both in

Elsevier's electronic submission system and elsewhere.


Elsevier's previous document class for typeset articles, elsart.cls,

is now over 10 years old. It has been replaced with this newly written

document class elsarticle.cls, which has been developed for Elsevier

by the leading TeX developer River Valley Technologies.


elsarticle.cls is based upon the standard LaTeX document class

article.cls. It uses natbib.sty for bibliographical references.


Bugs and problems with elsarticle.cls may be reported to the

developers of the class via elsarticle at river-valley.com.


The file manifest.txt provides a list of the files in the elsarticle

bundle.  The following are the main files available:

- elsarticle.cls, the class file

- elsdoc.pdf, the user documentation

- elsarticle-template-num.tex, template file for numerical references

- elsarticle-template-harv.tex, template file for name-year references

- elsarticle-num.bst, bibliographic style for numerical references

- elsarticle-harv.bst, bibliographic style for name-year references

- elsarticle-num-names.bst, bibliographic style for numerical references 

  with author-year citation


To extract all files from *.dtx: latex elsarticle.ins


The documentation file is elsdoc.tex in the contrib directory.  To

compile it:

1. pdflatex elsdoc

2. pdflatex elsdoc

3. pdflatex elsdoc




use the makefile. Use the target `all' (eg: make all).


The above procedure will create a print version, namely elsdoc.pdf.


Copyright 2007-2009, Elsevier. Bugs, feature requests, suggestions and

comments may be mailed to elsarticle at river-valley.com. elsarticle.cls,

related documentation and supporting packages are released under the

LATEX Project Public Licence, either version 1.3 or any later

version. This work has the LPPL maintenance status
