In general, the task of generating provenance is still tedious, and the community still lacks tools to generate provenance easily. In particular, when writing papers, researchers should be able to produce the provenance of their papers, make it available online, and embed provenance metadata directly in their PDF files. To address this goal, we introduce prov.sty, a PROV style for LaTeX, allowing LaTeX source to be marked up, and associated provenance to be generated automatically. Provenance captured by this style currently includes: authors, organisations, funders, bibliographic citations, and embedded images. PROV provenance is automatically generated and exported as a Turtle file; further, a link to a provenance resource can be embedded in PDF using the XMP metadata format.
