Help! What to do if it is not feasible for you to learn LaTeX or to hire someone
First – please don’t worry, we very much want you to submit your papers to the ACAL proceedings and will work with you to facilitate this.
If nobody is available to do the conversion for you, we will request that you submit the final version of your paper in a hybrid format to facilitate conversion. (This requires no LaTeX knowledge of you.) This will involve three main tasks:
Paper main text: copying the document text into an Overleaf document (no LaTeX!)
submitting trees/charts/images/etc separately in BOTH PDF format and whatever format you initially wrote them in.
Please follow the links above for specific instructions for this mode of submission.
This mode of submission also uses an Overleaf template, but which is designed to be viewed in Overleaf’s “Rich Text” mode, which is more accessible to people without LaTeX expertise.
The preceding strategy does require stable internet access. If accessing the internet is unreasonably expensive for you, simply respond to the volume editors and explain, and we will work out a solution with you for converting your paper to LaTeX.
