The MyST templates organization curates a community collection of MyST Markdown compatible templates. These templates allow MyST to export markdown files as typeset, formatted documents using PDF, LaTeX, Word or Typst templates. These templates expose data-driven options for customization ensuring the final documents comply with author submission guidelines provided by a particular journal, conference organizer or university.

Creating a Template

To create a template, you can follow the guide, as well as see the video below. Note that these guides are currently written for LaTeX, but can be generalized for Word and Typst. Documentation updates welcome!

MyST welcomes contributions of new templates, or improvements to any of our curated templates. To get started with LaTeX:
