The dccpaper bundle: classes for submissions to IJDC and IDCC

The dccpaper bundle consists of three very similar classes.

ijdc-v14.cls corresponds to the template used by the International Journal of Digital Curation, beginning with volume 14.

ijdc-v9.cls corresponds to the template used by the International Journal of Digital Curation for volumes 9 to 13 inclusive.

idcc.cls corresponds to the template used for the International Digital Curation Conference, beginning with IDCC15.

As the classes are so similar, their common features are abstracted out into dccpaper-base.sty; please do not attempt to use this package independently of the above classes.

The classes are able to produce both submissions and camera-ready papers.


Managed way

The latest stable release of the dccpaper bundle has been packaged for Live and MiK. If you are running Live and have tlmgr installed, you can install the bundle simply by running tlmgr install dccpaper. If you are running MiK, you can install the bundle by running mpm --install=dccpaper. Both tlmgr and mpm have GUI versions that you might find friendlier.

Automated way

A makefile is provided which you can use with the Make utility:

  • Running make source generates the derived files
    • README.md
      • ijdc-v9.cls
        • idcc.cls
        • dccpaper-base.sty
        • dccpaper-apacite.bib
        • dccpaper-biblatex.bib
    • Running make generates the above files and also dccpaper.pdf.
    • Running make inst installs the files in the user's tree.
    • Running make install installs the files in the local tree.

Manual way

  1. Run tex dccpaper.dtx to generate the source files.
  2. Compile dccpaper.dtx with (any version of) and Biber to generate the documentation. Due to a dependency on the markdown package, you will need either to use Lua or to enable shell escape.
  3. Move the files to your tree as follows:
    • source/latex/dccpaper: dccpaper.dtx, dccpaper.ins
      • tex/latex/dccpaper: ijdc-v9.cls, idcc.cls, dccpaper-base.sty, dccpaper-by.eps, dccpaper-by.pdf
      • doc/latex/dccpaper: dccpaper.pdf, dccpaper-apacite.bib, dccpaper-biblatex.bib, README.md
  1. You may then have to update your installation's file name database before and friends can see the files.

dccpaper – Typeset papers for the International Journal of Digital Curation

The class ijdc-v14 produces camera-ready papers and articles suitable for inclusion in the International Journal of Digital Curation, with applicability from volume 14 onwards; a legacy class ijdc-v9 is provided for papers and articles written for volumes 9-13.

The similar idcc class can be used for submissions to the International Digital Curation Conference, beginning with the 2015 conference.

As of August 2023 these classes are no longer officially supported for new submissions to the IJDC and IDCC, but nevertheless they continue to be maintained to support existing documents.
