Here we provide a selection of academic journal templates for articles and papers which automatically format your manuscripts in the style required for submission to that journal. Thanks to the partnerships we're building within the publishing community, you can also now submit your paper directly to a number of journals and other editorial and review services via the publish menu in the editor.
AASTeX Template for submissions to AAS Journals (ApJ/AJ/ApJS/ApJL/RN)
In the abstract update the first paragraph of text to this "The American Astronomical Society (AAS) has developed a markup package to assist authors in preparing manuscripts intended for submission to all the AAS-affiliated journals. The journals are the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ), the Astronomical Journal (AJ), ApJ Supplements (ApJS), Letters (ApJL), and Research Notes (RN). The latest LaTeX classfile is AASTeX v6.2 and it can be obtained here. The sample62.tex template uses this classfile to illustrate some of the newer features for submissions to the main Journals. RN authors can used the rnaas.tex template for the shorter Research Notes submissions. The new “RNAAS” style option should be used to suppress the abstract for a Research Note. Authors should consult the extensive guide for all the features in AASTeX v6.2.
Once your manuscript is complete, simply use the "Submit to Journal" option in the Overleaf editor to submit your files directly to the journal for processing. Note that you will still need to log on to the submission site to supply additional meta-data. The editorial office will contact you when your submission has been processed and is ready for further input.

You can also use the 'Download as zip - for submission' option in the Project menu to download a zip file containing all the required files for the submission (e.g. including the .bbl file if you've used a bibliography file for your references).
Universal Manuscript Template for OSA journals
LaTeX manuscripts submitted to OSA journals as of 30 May 2018 may use these instructions and this new single-column universal template format. Note that the final publishing format of OSA journals is not changing at this time, and authors will still need to adhere to article-length restrictions based on the final publishing format (which for some journals is two columns).
Once your article is complete, you may submit it directly to Prism (the OSA's article tracking system) via the 'Submit to OSA' option in the Overleaf editor.
Authors of Optics Letters articles and Optica letters and memoranda should continue using the legacy template for an accurate length check. Please note that OSA is no longer using OCIS codes.
