### Preamble for Journal of Mathematical Biology

Update 5: The updated svglov2.clo and svglov3.clo are not needed if the preamble is used below (i.e., if the \RequirePackage{fix-cm} line is added before the documentclass line.

Update 4: See the section that redefines \autoref. Changed definition to support starred commands that are unlinked.

Update 3: See the section starting with the comment "%% Level 1 Subsections". It forces subsections to show up like sections in the PDF bookmarks; this is a (strange) JMB convention. In the comment I make some suggestions for improvements.

Update 2: See the small commented section "%%%% Table Support". If the LaTeX code is uncommented there, there is no need for the \noalign{\smallskip} stuff around \hline horizontal table rules. It uses the tabls package to do this.

Update 1: I've mirrored this content on my web page.

I'd like to combine some of the previous posts. I've been trying to fix and modernize some of the Springer LaTeX support files for the Journal of Mathematical Biology (JMB). I've come up with these...

• svglov2.clo - document class option for svjour2.cls. I used fix-cm to get rid of some of the warnings about not being able to scale the Computer Modern fonts. This is not needed if the preamble below is used (i.e., with the fix-cm line before the documentclass line).

• svglov3.clo - document class option for svjour3.cls. I used fix-cm to get rid of some of the warnings about not being able to scale the Computer Modern fonts. This is not needed if the preamble below is used (i.e., with the fix-cm line before the documentclass line).

• spmpsci.bst - BiBTeX bibliography style file for JMB. The original version of this did not reverse the first and last name of the editors as required; I fixed that.

• spmpscinat.bst - natbib compatible BiBTeX bibliography style file for JMB. Be sure to include natbib with numbers and sort&compress options.
I recommend using a preamble like this one...
