as I noted earlier, we submitted my first project at Shea lab not only to a journal for peer review but also to a preprint server called bioRxiv.org. Since I hate reading manuscripts formatted for review (12 pt doublespace and figures at the end of the file), I put in a little time to make it look more professional.
Today I was asked for the MSWord template, so here it is.
I hope you will find it useful!
Have fun tinkering with your manuscript 😀
UPDATE (April 23, 2014) Another version features a text by Gaius Julius Caesar.
UPDATE (January 10, 2016) another group based an updated template on my idea: Template by Finkelstein
