How to create and add a new paper to SVN
To add a new paper into the repository:
Checkout the appropriate year (e.g., "svn checkout http://email@example.com/svn/snap2/docs/papers/2018/")
Create a new subdirectory in the 2018 for the paper. Use the following notation to create the folder <your-name>-<keyword> (e.g., seth-influence, jaewon-communities)
We keep each section of the paper in a separate file (000abstract.tex, 010intro.tex, ...). Here is a paper template that you can use: http://snap.stanford.edu/svn/snap2/docs/papers/samplePaper.zip
- We put the figures (EPS files) into the FIG folder (see samplePaper.zip)
- We use the Makefile to compile the LaTeX source into PDF. If you rename the *.tex files make sure you also edit the Makefile appropriately.
- Now that you have the skeleton of the paper ready add it to the repository: "svn add my-paper". Make sure you only add *.tex, *.bib, Makefile and the FIG folder. Don't add *.aux and other temporary files.
