[Tex/LaTex] How to remove headers and footers for pages between chapters


To ensure that a new chapter starts on a right-hand page, the book class (and the report class with the options twoside and openright) will insert blank pages between chapters if necessary. However, these pages still contain the headers and footers as defined by the class. How can I remove those?

Note: I know that I can manually add \clearpage\thispagestyle{empty} at the appropriate points of my document. However, this seems awkward and is prone to fail if I change my document later. I'm looking for automatic solutions.

Best Answer

Use the emptypage package.
