13.5 Linking with bookdown
As explained in Section 12.3, bookdown offers several extensions to the Markdown syntax, which can be particularly useful for academic writing, including cross-referencing of figures and tables. All rticles output formats are based on
rmarkdown::pdf_document, and we can use them as the “base formats” for
output: bookdown::pdf_book: base_format: rticles::peerj_article
You can substitute
rticles::peerj_article with the template you actually intend to use.
