 +
 +  * Use AMS Math. package.
 +
 +  * **Do not** put PDF text documents(pages>1) in ''Fig'' folder
 +
 +  * **Do not** use underscores in figure filenames, e.g., ''\plot{model_vel}'' breaks the report.
 +
 +  * Use **Header Commands**
 +  <code>
 +  \lefthead{Maysami}
 +  \righthead{short title of paper}
 +  \footer{SEP--138}
 +  </code>
 +
 +  * **Do not** use ''\email'' command.
 +
 +  * ''\def'' works fine; however, ''\newcommand'' causes  problems when is repeated for defining the same command (e.g include the same macro file in two deifferent aricles) . If you define a new commnd you must add your initials at the beginning of the command name (e.g. \providecommand BLBmycommad {#1}{\par}.) One work-around is ''\providecommand''. The ''\providecommand'' is identical to the ''\newcommand''  if a command with this name does not exist; if it does already exist, the ''\providecommand'' does nothing and the old definition remains in effect.
 +
 +  * In order to fully test each of your papers, you need to make a duplicate copy of the directory containing it (e.g. ''mohammadA'' and ''mohammadB'') into the main report directory and try to build it. For this purpose, you may make a local copy of the report directory in your own home directories and  create two copies of each of your paper directories (e.g. ''mohammadA'' and ''mohammadB''). Then try to build the report with only your own papers in it and see if it works fine or not. If not, you may consider debugging your paper to fix the problems.
