# Really blank pages between chapters

If you're using the standard classes, you need to take special action; the [`memoir`](https://ctan.org/pkg/memoir) class and the [`Koma-Script`](https://ctan.org/pkg/Koma-Script) classes provide their own support for this&nbsp;&mdash; see below.

[`Book`](https://ctan.org/pkg/Book) (by default) and [`report`](https://ctan.org/pkg/report) (with `openright` class option) ensure that each chapter starts on a right-hand (recto) page; they do this by inserting a `\cleardoublepage` command between chapters (rather than a mere `\clearpage`). The empty page thus created gets to have a normal running header, which some people don't like.

The (excellent) [`fancyhdr`](https://ctan.org/pkg/fancyhdr) manual covers this issue, basically advising the creation of a command `\clearemptydoublepage`: <!– {% raw %} –> ```latex \let\origdoublepage\cleardoublepage \newcommand{\clearemptydoublepage}{%

```\clearpage
{\pagestyle{empty}\origdoublepage}%```

} ``` <!– {% endraw %} –> The `obvious` thing is then to use this command to replace `\cleardoublepage` in a patched version of the `\chapter` command. (Make a package of your own containing a copy of the command out of the class.) This isn't particularly difficult, but you can instead simply subvert `\cleardoublepage` (which isn't often used elsewhere): ```latex \let\cleardoublepage\clearemptydoublepage ``` Note: this command works because `\clearemptydoublepage` uses a copy of `\cleardoublepage`: instructions on macro programming [patching techniques](/FAQ-patch) explain the problem and why this is a solution.

The [`emptypage`](https://ctan.org/pkg/emptypage) package does this sort of thing for you; all you need do is load the package, and it does the rest.

The _KOMA-Script_ replacements for the [`book`](https://ctan.org/pkg/book) and [`report`](https://ctan.org/pkg/report) classes ([`scrbook`](https://ctan.org/pkg/scrbook) and [`scrreprt`](https://ctan.org/pkg/scrreprt) offers class options `cleardoubleempty`, `cleardoubleplain` and `cleardoublestandard` (using the running page style, as normal) that control the appearance of these empty pages. The classes also offer do-it-yourself commands `\cleardoubleempty` (etc.).

The [`memoir`](https://ctan.org/pkg/memoir) class (and the [`nextpage`](https://ctan.org/pkg/nextpage) package) provide commands `\cleartooddpage` and `\cleartoevenpage`, which both take an optional argument (the first, with no argument, being an equivalent of `\cleardoublepage`). One can achieve `special` effects by putting commands in the optional argument: the `\clearemptydoublepage` we're after would be achieved by `\cleartooddpage[``\thispagestyle{empty}``]`. The commands will also serve if you want the surreal effect of ```This page intentionally left blank``` in the center of an otherwise empty page.
