13.6 Contributing templates

If you take a look at the GitHub repository of rticles (https://github.com/rstudio/rticles), you will see that a lot of the templates have been contributed by the R community. If you are interested in improving them or adding more journal templates, you may want to read Chapter 17, which outlines how a template can be made for R Markdown. Basically these templates are defined to translate the Pandoc variables from the YAML frontmatter and the body of the R Markdown document into LaTeX.
