The template PlanckPapers produces references for Planck papers in the text. There are three differences between this template and the BibCite.

  • PlanckPapers creates in the text a direct link to the papers being cited;
  • With PlanckPapers, it is possible to create a link to a specific page of the paper;
  • With PlanckPapers it is possible to create a link with text defined by the user;

The syntax of PlanckPapers is


where the thre parameters are as follows:

label used to cite the paper in LaTeX;
(optional parameter) page number where the paper paper should open when the user clicks on the link. When this parameter is not provided the paperwill open in page 1;
(optional parameter) text of the link to the paper. If not supplied the default text is one of Planck-2013-X, Planck-Early-X or Planck-Int-X or Planck-PreLaunch-X, for the Planck 2013 papers, Planck early papers, Planck internediate papers or Planck pre launch papers. The X stands for a roman numeral identifying the paper being cited;


Citing a paper using all the default values for optional parameters

What you type


How it appears A very interesting result can be found in Planck-2013-I[1].

Citing a paper and opening it in a given page

What you type


How it appears On the other hand in Planck-Early-I[2] a demonstration is given of a most interesting fact.

Citing a paper with a custom link

What you type


How it appears

On the other hand it is shown in the and statistics paper Planck-2013-XXIII[3] that the above mentioned result is rubish.

Note that in this last case, the second argument (the page number where the paper should open) does not need to have a value and it is perfectly fine for the corresponding slot in the template syntax (delimited by the || in the template syntax) to be emtpy. It is however mandatory to use the two | in order for the template to be interpreted correctly.
