rsc - styles for Royal Society of Chemistry and Wiley journals

The rsc package provides style files to produce bibliographies in accordance with the guidelines of the Royal Society of Chemistry and Wiley chemistry-related journals. The styles require the use of natbib. In addition, a short package is included; this provides a convenient user interface to the customisation hooks made available by the styles.


The package is supplied in .dtx format and as a pre-extracted zip file, rsc.tds.zip. The later is most convenient for most users: simply unzip this in your local texmf directory. If you want to unpack the .dtx yourself, running texrsc.dtx will extract the package whereas 'latex rsc.dtxwill extract it and also typeset the documentation.

Typesetting the documentation requires a number of packages in addition to those needed to use the package. This is mainly because of the number of demonstration items included in the text. To compile the documentation without error, you will need the packages:

  • helvet
  • hypdoc
  • listings
  • lmodern
  • mathpazo
  • microtype

rsc – style for use with RSC journals

The rsc package provides a style in accordance with the requirements of the Royal Society of Chemistry. It was originally based on the file pccp.bst, but also implements a number of styles from the achemso package. The package is now a stub for the chemstyle package, which the author developed to unify the writing of articles with a chemistry content.
