In partnership with the NASA Astronomical Data System (ADS) and several NASA data centers, the AAS has a new project to allow authors to tag data sets from participating data centers in their papers using the AASTeX “\dataset” macro. Data sets tagged with the “\dataset” macro will appear in the electronic edition linked to a name resolver at ADS that will take readers to the data sets themselves.
AASTeX Tag Definition: Relates to AASTeX manuscript mark-up language.
AASTeX allows authors to Patrick Daly's
natbib package to manage citations. The
natbib package re-implements LaTeX's
\cite command, and offers greater flexibility for managing citations in the author-year form.
At this time, the most widely used means of including figures or other types of non-textual data in electronic manuscripts is to generate such files as Encapsulated PostScript (EPS).
Examples of a manuscript marked up in AASTeX v5.x requiring nearly all of the capabilities of the package and a relatively short but complex table prepared in the deluxetable format.
