# Re: AUDITORY Digest - 7 Oct 2016 to 8 Oct 2016 (#2016-68)

Dear Dominique,

Our lab uses a variety of boxes custom made by Dave Rogge at http://usbbuttons.com/. They're reasonably cheap when you buy in bulk, billing is simple (PayPal, you can use a corporate card), they can be pre-programmed to enter particular keys to avoid using a keymapper, and they last forever.

best
Sam

Subject: JASA Express Letters Template

Hi Phil,

Yes I have one. And I was working with JASA team to try solve this problem. I have submitted several (2)
MS to JASA using this format, and they have gotten by the screening process.

To save me time, can I send you the Latex MS that we submitted, so I dont need to turn it into a template?
I think I have a template, and if so, I can send that. I'll need to look.

Here is an overview of what I did to solve this problem:
1) dont use the JASA template, its broken. You must use

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage{natbib} %jasa style references; works with subfigure             <-- Likely required to work
\bibliographystyle{apalike} %slight difference with some refs                    <-- maybe not necessary

\usepackage{setspace}
%\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1}                       <-- for no line spacing
\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.2}                       <-- change to for submission

%JASA Headers                                                              <-- essential for JASA

\renewcommand{\thefootnote}{\alph{footnote})} %Not sure this is necessary

% A few lines are necessary to convert the headers from numerical to alpha. These lines are
%This IS essential:

\textbf{\Roman{section}. \ #1}\setcounter{subsection}{0}
\setlength{\parindent}{5ex} %\vspace{3mm}
}

\textbf{\Alph{subsection}. \ #1} \setcounter{subsubsection}{0}
\setlength{\parindent}{5ex} %\vspace{2mm}
}

\textbf{\arabic{subsubsection}. \ #1}
}

and replace it with the contents of the bib file output. It should like like this:

Hi All,

Does anyone have a (link to) a word template for JASA Express Letters? Or, failing that, a latex style sheet.

Hi list,

Does anyone have a suggestion for a reasonably-priced button box for use with Psychtoolbox on a Linux system to collect RT responses?

Dominique.

Hi Phil,

This is not exactly what you asked for, but I have a template here [1] for creating JASA and JASA-EL submittable documents from Markdown.  It relies on Pandoc to convert the markdown to tex, then uses a couple of python scripts to post-process the tex file to do things like replace figures with "INSERT FIGURE 1 ABOUT HERE".  There is also a makefile that manages the pipeline fairly well.  Feel free to create issues on the GitHub repo if you try it and something doesn't work (or submit pull requests to fix broken parts!)  As it says in the README: not tested on Windows/Mac, so your mileage may vary.
