AuthorArranger: Quickly Format Manuscript Title Pages

AuthorArranger is a free web tool designed to help authors of research manuscripts generate correctly formatted title pages for manuscript journal submission in a fraction of the time it takes to create the pages manually. Whether your manuscript has 20 authors or 200, AuthorArranger can save you time and resources by helping you conquer journal title pages in seconds.

Users upload a spreadsheet containing author details ordered by author contribution, or download AuthorArranger’s easy-to-follow spreadsheet template.  AuthorArranger allows users to make format choices based on journal submission rules and produces a downloadable and formatted document.

AuthorArranger was created by Mitchell Machiela, Sc.D., M.P.H., and Geoffrey Tobias, in collaboration with programmers in the Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology. Support for AuthorArranger came from the 2018 DCEG Informatics Tool Challenge.
