Journal Article Manuscript Template
This general template aims to serve as an advanced, feature-filled, place-holder template during the drafting and submission process. It is a general academic article manuscript template, which conforms to general guidelines (double-spaced, Times New Roman, etc.) and can easily be adapted to the exact specifications of any journal's manuscript submission guidelines. It includes some added features such as a cover page, line-numbering, draft watermarks, word count, and highlighting and commenting capabilities.
The Overleaf editor already provides a word count via the texcount facility, but there may be times when you need to use different options (e.g. for counting characters; without the bibliography, etc.) This example shows how you can execute texcount with your preferred parameters in your project.
