Nature package Version: 1.0, 24 Feb. 2004 by Peter Czoschke -------------------- This package is meant to aid people preparing scientific papers in the journal Nature (Nature Publishing Group) using LaTeX. Nature does not officially accept preprints or final drafts in LaTeX. However, they DO accept papers in PDF format, which is of course not difficult to arrange. The file nature.cls is the LaTeX2e class file that should be used to write the document. It is designed so that papers written under a different class can be easily converted to Nature's style. I attempted to conform to NPG's style as set out in their Microsoft Word template file available from their website, including paragraph spacing, indentation, etc. The file naturemag.bst is the appropriate BibTeX style file to conform to NPG's reference style, generated using the custom-bib package. It should be up-to-date as of this writing. For more information, see the beginning of the class file. The file nature-template.tex gives an example/template of how to use the class and gives some limited tips on NPG's requirements for submission. I am in no way affiliated with NPG and make no claim that the style of any document prepared using this package will conform to NPG's preprint style exactly. When in doubt, refer to their website at: http://www.nature.com/nature/submit/gta/index.html Good luck! -Peter Czoschke This package is released under the LaTeX Project Public License, version 1 or (at your option) any later version: README nature.cls mature-template.tex naturemag.bst

nature – Prepare papers for the journal Nature
Nature does not accept papers in LaTeX, but it does accept PDF. This class and BibTeX style provide what seems to be necessary to produce papers in a format acceptable to the publisher.
