Template for submissions to Elsevier journals using the new document class elarticle.cls (v3.3). It is accepted for submitted articles, both in Elsevier's electronic submission system and elsewhere. Bugs and problems with elsarticle.cls may be reported to the developers of the template via firstname.lastname@example.org.
This template allows to choose between one column and two columns manuscript by selecting the desired layout in the documentclass command at the beginning of the file. Choose your preferred format and comment all other \documentclass lines.
Note that not all Elsevier publications use the Graphical Abstract and the Highlights. You can comment the relevant lines at the beginning of the template (within the frontmatter) if you don’t need to use them. The same applies to the rest of the offered options.
For complex articles layout please use the Elsevier’s LaTeX Single-Column template or the Elsevier’s LaTeX Double-Column template.
Before submitting the manuscript to the journal, please make sure that the file compiles without errors by selecting “Stop on first error” in the recompile options.
