Using the STANDARD Submission Option
When choosing the Standard Submission option and submitting native TeX files, use of the achemso style package is strongly encouraged. The achemso style package, including complete and detailed instructions for file preparation, as well as sample files, is freely available to you for download:
achemso style package [zip]
instructions and sample files [zip]
support package [zip] (also available as part of TeX system or from CTAN)
The main body of the TeX/LaTeX document (.tex or .ltx) should be uploaded and designated as the Manuscript File. When you upload your TeX/LaTeX Manuscript File, the system will analyze the file, and identify additional resource files referenced within the file (such as image files and bibliographic files) that are necessary to complete the document.
Any file referenced by the main TeX/LaTeX document (including other .tex files) can then be uploaded and designated as TeX/LaTeX Suppl File(s).
Graphics may be uploaded separately using the Graphic for manuscript file designation.
The system will not allow you to submit your manuscript until you have completed your TeX/LaTeX document upload, including all necessary resource files uploaded as TeX/LaTeX Suppl Files. The system will also not allow you to submit your manuscript if you designate a file as a TeX/LaTeX Suppl File, and it is not referenced by any TeX/LaTeX files uploaded to the system.
Once all required files have been uploaded, you will be provided with system-generated HTML and PDF proofs of your submission, which you should review carefully to ensure all formulas and other special formatting are rendered correctly. Files uploaded as TeX/LaTeX Suppl Files will not be viewable as individual files when the HTML proof is created for the review process and they will not be rendered independently of the entire TeX/LaTeX document. Content uploaded separately will be displayed in the system-generated PDF proof at the location specified in your TeX/LaTeX document. If graphics are uploaded separately using the Graphic for manuscript file designation, they will be appended to the Manuscript PDF File in the order you specified during the File Upload step.
