Another question, I am a student , I think it is a big problem that how to 
exchange you article with your teacher, because the teacher will comment or 
revise your article once again and again.

However, Many teachers will not use emacs to write articles and also the pdf 
file is not so convenient to do some modification, how will you deal with the 
problem ?

And this one on using org-mode in teaching:


See for my Emacs setup for

My only other advice is start learning to program in emacs-lisp. It took
me about four years to get proficient enough to write org-ref. I learned
by solving lots of little problems, and building up to bigger
problems. A lot of those are documented in my blog. Read the emacs and
emacs-lisp manuals (read them in Emacs or in a browser). They take some
time, so skip the stuff that doesn't make sense and come back to it
later if you need to. Consider getting the book at It isn't about org-mode, but it will
make you better at using Emacs. Consider reading Land of Lisp. It isn't
about Emacs or Emacs-lisp, but it might interest you in programming in a
lispy language, and it is a fun read.

Buy the org-mode book:
it is the same stuff as in the manual, but it is a book you can read
anywhere anytime.

Start by learning how to get org-mode to do some things you want. Just
do one thing a day. Every day.

You hopefully have 30+ years of career ahead of you, so even if it takes
a few years or more to learn how to program in emacs-lisp to customize
your workflows, you still have plenty of time to benefit from it!
