Layout file for OSA articles based on osajnl.cls

Postby ronald611 » Wed Jan 13, 2016 5:12 pm


I'd like to write a scientific article for the Optical Society of America (OSA), in particular the journal JOSA A. However, there's no matching layout file. There has been a corresponding thread on this subject in 2013 at and a solution based on the OSA style file osajnl.sty, however, this file is obsolete and no longer supported by OSA. As of October 2015, there's the new LaTeX2e class file osajnl.cls available on this website:

The archive also contains the example file OSA-journal-template.tex, but tex2lyx cannot translate it.

How can I get LyX to generate a PDF that looks like the LaTeX2e output of OSA-journal-template.tex? I would suggest adding a corresponding layout file to the LyX Examples.
