How to use LyX for articles in the Journal Astronomy & Astrophysics (A&A).


The Journal of Astronomy & Astrophysics provides guidelines and a LaTeX-package for articles.


  1. Download this archive file: http://ftp.edpsciences.org/pub/aa/aa-package.zip
  2. Assuming that you are using MiKTeX, create a subfolder named aa in MiKTeX's latex package folder, e.g.
    C:\Program Files\MiKTeX\tex\latex\aa
    and extract the archive file there.
  3. Create a subfolder named aa in MiKTeX's BibTeX style folder, e.g.
    C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\bibtex\bst\aa
    and extract there the file aa.bst from the archive.
  4. To make the new files visible for MiKTeX, use the Start menu Programs->MiKTeX->Settings and press there "Refresh FNDB".
  5. In LyX use the menu Tools->Reconfigure, and then restart LyX.
