Setting abstract as single column and introduction as two column

Postby ajamel88 » Wed Oct 09, 2019 9:30 pm

Hi,

I am about sending my paper to a journal. The journal format is tow column but the abstract is a single column. I am using a springer template. When I try to set the layout as \documentclass[twocolumn]{svjour3} but the abstract also is setting as twocolumn I need the abstract format to be separated to the rest of the paper.

For example, it should be like this:
Abstract
ababababababababab
ababababababababab
ababababababababab

Introduction
abababab babababab
babaabab babababab
abababab babababab

any help please?

If you are sending your paper to a Springer journal that uses svjour3, don't care about such things but use the class as it (with the options documented for the particular journal), read the author manual and obey the author instructions. Usually Springer will do the detail work and remove all modifications. So to deviate from the author instructions and modify the usual result of the class would increase the work amount needed to be done by Springer. I've worked as typesetter for Springer and can tell you: They wouldn't like it.

If you are sending your paper to another publisher don't use a Springer class. Use either the class provided by your publisher or use the generic article class.

Actually, I reviewed the papers published in the journal all of them were formatted as I mentioned. this is why I thought that I should commit the paper style. So as you mentioned I will use the class option and let springer do the details. Thank you very much, dear.
