This is Elsevier's new document class for typeset journal articles,
elsarticle.cls. It is now accepted for submitted articles, both in
Elsevier's electronic submission system and elsewhere.
Elsevier's previous document class for typeset articles, elsart.cls,
is now over 10 years old. It has been replaced with this newly written
document class elsarticle.cls, which has been developed for Elsevier
by the leading TeX developer River Valley Technologies.
elsarticle.cls is based upon the standard LaTeX document class
article.cls. It uses natbib.sty for bibliographical references.
Bugs and problems with elsarticle.cls may be reported to the
developers of the class via email@example.com.
The file manifest.txt provides a list of the files in the elsarticle
bundle. The following are the main files 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
- elsarticle-num.bst, bibliographic style for numerical references
- elsarticle-harv.bst, bibliographic style for name-year references
- elsarticle-num-names.bst, bibliographic style for numerical references
with author-year citation

1. pdflatex elsdoc
2. pdflatex elsdoc
3. pdflatex elsdoc

The above procedure will create a print version, namely elsdoc.pdf.
