‘Eckmeier-ize’ your bioRxiv submissions


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 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

By Dr. Dennis Eckmeier

I am a neuroscientist from Germany with a background in biology. I was awarded a doctorate at Bielefeld University (Germany) in 2010. Currently I work in Portugal as a postdoctoral fellow. I am specialized in sensory processing in vertebrates and animal behavior, further touching on cognitive aspects such as depth perception, memory formation, modulation of brain state and awareness. My studies involve in vivo electrophysiology and optical imaging aswell as video tracking of behavior.

I blog about science, specificaly neuroscience, and the scientific community. You can contact me directly using the contact form.
