# raeisf.cls : LATEX2e class file to typeset RAE Individual Survey Form

Nicola L. C. Talbot

3rd November 2004

# Introduction

The raeisf.cls class file is designed to produce the UEA review for RAE 2008 Individual Survey Form, for those who would rather use LATEX, instead of Word. It makes it a lot easier to fill in the form if you already have all your publications in a BibTeX database. This class file is based on the article class, and requires the following packages: geometry, longtable, bibunits, ifthen and rotating. Please make sure you have all these packages installed on your system before you use this class file.

When you LATEX your document, you will also need to run BibTeX on all the bu*.aux files created by bibunits. The bibunits package comes with a shell script called bibtexall which runs BibTeX on all .aux files found in the current directory. This unfortunately includes the main auxiliary file, however the script can be modified slightly so that it only runs BibTeX on the bu*.aux files:

#!/bin/bash

for file in bu*.aux ; do
bibtex basename $file .aux done  The form itself is generated using the command \makeform. To produce a blank version of the form, simply do: \documentclass{raeisf} \begin{document} \makeform \end{document} To enter information into the form, you must specified the required information (using the commands described later) before the command \makeform. Any text placed after \makeform will be appended to the form. Your name is entered using the command \name{your name}. Your school is entered using the command \school{your school} # Publications All your publications (published, in press, submitted) need to be stored in one or more BibTeX databases (.bib files). If they are all contained in a single .bib file, this file can be specified using the command: \defaultbibliography{bib name}. This command is defined in bibunits.sty, please read the bibunits documentation for further details. The raeisf class file comes with the BibTeX style file raeisf.bst. This style file defines the three extra fields: rank (RAE rank), jif (journal impact factor) and reviewed (peer-reviewed? Should have the value n or y). These fields can be used with all entry types. (Note that these fields will be ignored if you use any other style file.) This BibTeX style file will be used automatically by the raeisf class file. The form stipulates that senior author must be indicated using an asterisk. If you have a large centrally located bib file containing all your publications, it's a nuisance having to edit it every time you want to use it in a different document. It may be easier to define a command, called, say, \senior, and redefine it depending on your document. Here is an example: @preamble{"\def\senior{$^\ast\$} % senior author"}

@string{ESANN="Proceedings of the European Symposium on Artificial Neural
Networks"}

@inproceedings{cawley2004a,
author = "Gavin C. Cawley{\senior} and Nicola L. C. Talbot",
title  = "Sparse {B}ayesian kernel logistic regression",
booktitle = ESANN # " (ESANN-2004)",
pages = "133--138",
month = apr # " 28--30",
year = 2004,
rank = "1",
jif  = "2.19",
reviewed = "y"
}

@article{cawley2004b,
author = "Gavin C. Cawley{\senior} and Nicola L. C. Talbot",
title = "Hetroscedastic kernel ridge regression",
journal = "Neurocomputing",
volume = 57,
pages = "105--124",
year = 2004,
rank = "5",
jif = "3.0",
reviewed = "y"
}

author = "K Saadi and Gavin C Cawley and Nicola L C Talbot",
title  = "Fast exact leave-one-out cross-validation of least-squares
support vector machines",
booktitle = ESANN # " (ESANN-2002)",
pages = "149--154",
month = apr,
year = 2002
}

@article{theobald2004,
author = "Barry Theobald and J. Andrew Bangham{\senior} and I. Matthews
and Gavin C. Cawley",
title = "Near-videorealistic synthetic talking faces: Implementation and
evaluation",
journal = "Speech Communication",
note = "submitted on invitation",
year = 2004
}

You now only need to change the first line to:
@preamble{"\def\senior{} % senior author"}

and the asterisks will be removed.

(Note that the \senior command is placed immediately after the surname with no spaces, that way BibTeX will be fooled into thinking it is part of the author's surname, otherwise the name won't be formatted correctly.)

## Publications and other research outputs after 31 December 2000

All your publications after 31 December 2000 should be specified using the command: \publications[bib name]{cite list} where bib name is the name of your BibTeX database. This can be omitted if you have used the command \defaultbibliography. The argument cite list should be a comma-separated list of the bibliography entries you want included in this section. For example:

\publications{cawley2004a,cawley2004b}


## Publications in Press (and other outputs which are ready for delivery)

These are publications which have been accepted by the journal/publisher. This information is specified using the command: \accepted[bib name]{cite list}. This has the same format as \publications described above.

## Publications Submitted and other Outputs which are being considered

These are publications which have been submitted to a journal. This information is specified using the command: \submitted[bib name]{cite list}. This has the same format as \publications described above.

## Publications and Other Outputs Planned

These are publications you are planning. This information can be specified using the command: \planned[bib name]{cite list}. This has the same format as \publications described above.

## Publications/Outputs You Would like to see Published/Delivered Before RAE 2008

This is research you believe, if published before 31 July 2007, will be a high scorer in RAE terms. This information is specified using the command: \wouldlike[bib name]{cite list}. This has the same format as \publications described above.

# Research Grants

General note: the commands described in this section add items to a longtable environment, so be careful about starting new lines -- use \newline instead of \\.

## Research Grants awarded after 31 December 2000

The information for each research grant should be entered using the command:

\grantawarded{PI}{Co-I}{Title}{Start Date}{End Date}{Date
Applied

The information will be inserted into a table at the end of the form. Unfortunately, I don't know how to produce a sideways longtable, so if your total number of grants will cause the table to be too big, you will need to use \grantawardedcont instead of \grantawarded to place the remaining entries on the next page. Example:

 \grantawarded
{Dr Gavin Cawley}
{Dr Nicola Talbot}
{An interesting project}
{1 Jan 01}
{31 Dec 02}
{1 Jun 00}
{1,000}
{CMP}
{EPSRC}

\grantawarded
{Dr Gavin Cawley}
{Dr Nicola Talbot}
{Another interesting project}
{1 Jan 02}
{31 Dec 03}
{1 Jun 01}
{2,000}
{CMP}
{EPSRC}

% lots of other grants that have filled up the table

\grantawardedcont
{Dr Gavin Cawley}
{Dr Nicola Talbot}
{A not so interesting project}
{1 Jan 03}
{31 Dec 04}
{1 Jun 02}
{3,000}
{CMP}
{EPSRC}


You should have a \grantawarded or \grantawardedcont command for each entry. If you have the relevant data stored in an Excel file, you can saved it as a CSV file, and use the csvtools package. For example, suppose you have a CSV file called grants.csv that contains the following information (lines wrapped to fit on page):

PI,Co-I,Title,Start Date,End Date,Date Applied,Amount,Lead School,Funder
Dr Gavin Cawley,Dr Nicola Talbot,An interesting project,1 Jan 01,31 Dec 02,
1 Jun 00,{1,000},CMP,EPSRC
Dr Gavin Cawley,Dr Nicola Talbot,Another interesting project,1 Jan 02,31 Dec 03,
1 Jun 01,{2,000},CMP,EPSRC

Then you can do:
\applyCSVfile{grants.csv}
{\edef\cmdargs{
{\insertPI}
{\insertbyname{Co-I}}
{\insertTitle}
{\insertbyname{Start Date}}
{\insertbyname{End Date}}
{\insertbyname{Date Applied}}
{\insertAmount}
{\insertFunder}}
\expandafter\grantawarded\cmdargs}

If you have more entries than will fit on a single page, you could do something like:
\applyCSVfile{grants.csv}
{\edef\cmdargs{
{\insertPI}
{\insertbyname{Co-I}}
{\insertTitle}
{\insertbyname{Start Date}}
{\insertbyname{End Date}}
{\insertbyname{Date Applied}}
{\insertAmount}
{\insertFunder}}
\ifthenelse{\value{csvrownumber}<6}
{\expandafter\grantawarded\cmdargs}
{\expandafter\grantawardedcont\cmdargs}}

(assuming only the first five entries will fit on the page.)

## Research Grants Pending

Pending research grants can be entered using the command:

\grantpending{PI}{Co-I}{Title}{Start Date}{End Date}{Date
Applied

This has the same format as \grantawarded. The command \grantpendingcont is analogous to \grantawardedcont.

## Planned Research Grants

Planned research grants can be entered using the command:

\grantplanned{PI}{possible Co-I}{planned title}{est. start date}{est. end date}{planned date of application}{est. amount to be applied for}{likely funder(s)}

You should have the command \grantplanned for each planned research grant. The command \grantplannedcont is analogous to \grantawardedcont
