I am wondering how to generate a small paranthesis (1), (2) etc nearby an author name which directs to a specific affiliation. Thanks

If you're using the `\maketitle` command (when specified `\title`, `\author` and `\date`), you can add the `\thanks` to the `\author` command to add an affiliation.

In our collaboration of 270, we use the following for Elsarticle submissions:

Code: Select all  •  Open in online LaTeX editor
`\author[Gent]{Y.~Name1} \fnref{LosAlamos}}\author[Zeuthen]{M.~Name2}etc.\address[Gent]{Dept.~of Physics and Astronomy, University of Gent, B-9000 Gent, Belgium}\address[Zeuthen]{DESY, D-15735 Zeuthen, Germany}etc.\fntext[LosAlamos]{Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM 87545, USA}`

This gives a list of each author with the proper affiliation, plus the footnote at the bottom of the page of Los Alamos for the first author.

Since we have such a big collaboration, the superscripts of the author affiliations is super-messy if you leave LaTeX to default on letters (it gets to Z and then starts with AA, then AB, etc.). If you want numbers instead of letters, then the proper command to put before the author list is:

Code: Select all  •  Open in online LaTeX editor
`\def\theaffn{\arabic{affn}}`

This changes alpha to numeric, or letters to numbers, for the author affiliation. I spent hours online trying to find this solution but had to go to the LaTeX experts to get the answer. I wanted to share this in a public forum in the hopes that it would help someone else avoid the pain.

Of course you need to switch the author footnotes to letters or symbols, too. Which I haven't figured out how to do yet. Can anyone help with this?

Cheers,
Sandy
