Template for editors of a "contributed volume", provided by Springer, to help structure the manuscript, e.g., define the heading hierarchy. Predefined style formats are available for all the necessary structures that are supposed to be part of the manuscript.
The original template has been modified so that contribution from each author can be contained in their own folders, using the import package.
Note: These templates are not intended for the preparation of the final page layout! The final layout will be created by Springer according to their layout specifications.
This template allows you a quick start creating books with LaTeX that you can directly publish on Amazon, Google, and Leanpub as e-book or printed edition. Check out the accompanying book "Better Books with LaTeX the Agile Way" for step-by-step instructions for this template: https://amzn.to/2Jiwpzh
