Checklists and Templates

AGU provides a number of checklists and templates to help facilitate new submissions and revisions. Authors can also submit their papers directly using cloud-based authoring tools Overleaf and Authorea.  If you use any of these templates, the metadata from the paper will be automatically loaded into our submission system when you upload the manuscript file.


  • Checklist for Submitting a New Manuscript (PDF)
  • Checklist for Returning a Revised Manuscript after Peer Review (PDF) or a Resubmitted Manuscript that has already undergone peer review.

Word Templates:

  • Template for the Main Manuscript (docx)
  • Template for Supporting Information (docx)

Latex Templates and Instructions. AGU LaTeX templates are also on Overleaf, a cloud-based LaTeX authoring system.

Please note, AGU is in the process of updating our latex template with our updated style.  The below main manuscript tex template does not yet include AGU’s updated style. You may continue using this template and do not need to alter the style. During production, the typesetters will apply the updated style, which you will notice in author proofs.
