Adding models to Stan manual

#1

Hi -

I am using a modified version of the LDA model in the Stan reference model (changed word distribution, added document-level covariates). Is there an established procedure for adding models to the manual? I couldn’t find one in my Google searches.

Thanks much,

Bob

the manuals have been moved to repo: https://github.com/stan-dev/docs

you’re welcome to file an issue to add your model to the manual. if you’re comfortable using R markdown and bookdown (requires knitr, pandoc, minimum, and latex to generate pdfs), then you can create a branch and submit a PR. otherwise, write it up in the issue and we’ll try to get it in there.

I think the user’s guide will is the right place for a new model if it illustrates a general point. Otherwise, I think a case study might be more appropriate.

Having said that, if you submit a PR for the user’s guide, we’ll probably take it. We’d like to encourage more contributions!
