LaTeX author support for the International Press journal Journal of Blockchain Research (JBR)

Table of Contents


Author support service provides LaTeX style files and *.tex file templates designed for International Press journal Journal of Blockchain Research (JBR) articles.

Package content

The following files are given in the repository (or directly in *.zip archive):

  • imsart-number.bst, imsart-nameyear.bst - suggested BibTeX1 related bibliography styles. If your bibliography is structured in BibTeX format, loading your *.bib file and one of provided BibTeX styles allows you to get the final format of the bibliography.

  • Use the file jbr-template.tex to start your article as a template.
  • Use the file jbr-sample.tex as a reference for how to prepare a topmatter of your article.
