Template error in a Natural Sciences Publishing article

Postby Mathst » Fri Mar 13, 2020 9:32 pm

I want to send a paper to Natural Sciences Publishing. They give a template latex file to follow. But, when I try to generate their file, it give me several errors, like:

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
...

l.281 \end{equation}

?
[3]



and:

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
...

l.375 \bibitem{A2}
G.B West, J.H Brown, B.J Enquist, Science \textbf{284}, ...

?


and of course, the error concerning the logo at the top of the first page of the article

LaTeX Error: File `logo7pt' not found.

althogh, the logo7pt file exists in the given folder!

A link for the template file of the journal:

Your editor seems to be absolutely pointless. It doesn't show you the real error message.
Open the log file yo see which vommands are undefined.

Also, why not asking the journal editors directly if their template is broken?
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
