Y'know, if you're going to have all these requirements, and refuse to review papers because they don't meet the format requirements, the sensible thing would be to MAKE A FUCKING LATEX STYLE FILE.

A Multi-Language Computing Environment for Literate Programming and Reproducible Research
"We present a new computing environment for authoring mixed natural and computer language documents. In this environment a single hierarchically-organized plain text source file may contain a variety of elements such as code in arbitrary programming languages, raw data, links to external resources, project management data, working notes, and text for publication. Code fragments may be executed in situ with graphical, numerical and textual output captured or linked in the file. Export to LATEX, HTML, LATEX beamer, DocBook and other formats permits working reports, presentations and manuscripts for publication to be generated from the file. In addition, functioning pure code files can be automatically extracted from the file. This environment is implemented as an extension to the Emacs text editor and provides a rich set of features for authoring both prose and code, as well as sophisticated project management capabilities."

The last answer is the helpful one (and makes a lot of sense now that I think about it).

Choosing Your Workflow Applications
We should consider distributing this to the incoming graduate students. (Except we'd need to make it clear that using Word is NOT ACCEPTABLE.)

"Sweave is a tool that allows to embed the R code for complete data analyses in latex documents. The purpose is to create dynamic reports, which can be updated automatically if data or analysis change. Instead of inserting a prefabricated graph or table into the report, the master document contains the R code necessary to obtain it. When run through R, all data analysis output (tables, graphs, etc.) is created on the fly and inserted into a final latex document. The report can be automatically updated if data or analysis change, which allows for truly reproducible research."

Earning My Turns: Complexity Illness
"My conference submissions often hit the limit because at the time of submission I haven't understood fully what I am proposing, or what experiments are the best to test what I am proposing."
