Elsevier's new document class for typeset journal articles,
elsarticle.cls, now available for user testing

Elsevier's document class for typeset articles elsart.cls is over 10
years old. Therefore it will be replaced with the newly written document
class elsarticle.cls, which was developed for Elsevier by the leading
TeX company River-Valley Technologies.

elsarticle.cls is based upon the standard LaTeX document class
article.cls. It uses natbib.sty for bibliographical references.

The following files are available:
- elsarticle.cls, the class file
- elsdoc.pdf, the user documentation
- elsarticle-template-num.tex, template file for numerical references
- elsarticle-template-harv.tex, template file for name-year references

Elsevier encourages authors to use this document class for testing, and
report bugs and problems to the developers of the class,
elsarticle at river-valley.com. It is the intention to finalize this
document class by the end of August. By that date it will be accepted
for submitted articles, both in Elsevier's electronic submission system
and otherwise.

The files can be found at Elsevier's web site, www.elsevier.com/latex,
last item on the page. The files have been submitted to CTAN, with
suggested location macros/latex/contrib/elsarticle.
