# New CTAN package: coverpage

Date: February 26, 2006 8:42:38 PM CET
On Thu, 23 Feb 2006 Matthias Mühlich submitted the package coverpage to CTAN. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/coverpage Summary description: automatic cover page creation for scientific papers (with BibTeX data and copyright notice) License type: pd Announcement text:
The package coverpage was created to supplement scientific papers with a cover page containing bibliographical information, a copyright notice, and/or some logos of the author's institution. The cover page is created (almost) automatically; this is done by parsing BibTeX information corresponding to the main document and reading a configuration file in which the author can set information like the affiliation he or she is associated with. The cover page consists of header, body and footer; all three are macros which can be redefined using \renewcommand, thus allowing easy customization of the package. Additionally, it should be stressed that the cover page layout is totally independent of the main document and its page layout (which is not the easiest thing to achieve in LaTeX). This package requires four other package's (keyval, url, textcomp, and verbatim), but all of them are standard package's and should be part of every LaTeX installation.
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
