\thanks with multiple \authors and institutes

Postby early_adopter » Mon Oct 13, 2008 2:18 pm

Is there a more principled way to achieve the following?

I'm thinking of something like \thanks[1]{...} and then \thanksref{1}

Note that I'm trying to avoid having each institute appear more than once.

\documentclass{article}

\title{Oddly named Animals}
\author{Arthur Aardvark\thanks{Institute of Aardvarks and Zebras}
\and Egbert Elephant\thanks{Institute of Elephants and Foxes}
\and Fred Fox\footnotemark[2]
\and Zoe Zebra\footnotemark[1]}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

The document...

\end{document}

Hi there!

I don't know if this is exactly what you mean, but the elsevier document class has a feature like that:
(I cut out some of the non relevant parts to make it shorter.)
  1. \documentclass{elsart4}
  2.  
  3. \usepackage{graphicx}
  4. \usepackage{amssymb}
  5. \usepackage{natbib}
  6. \usepackage{textcomp}
  7.  
  8. \begin{document}
  9. \begin{frontmatter}
  10.  
  11. \title{}
  12.  
  13. %----------------------------------------------------------------------
  14. % List of authors
  15. %
  16. % List each author using a separate \author{} command
  17. %
  18. % If there is more than one author address, add a label to each author
  19. % of the form \author[label]{name}. This label should be identical to
  20. % the corresponding label provided with the \address command.
  21. %
  22. % e.g. if there are three authors from two institutions in USA and
  23. % France, you can link them to their respective addresses, using
  24. %
  25. % \author[US]{John Doe}
  26. % \author[US,FR]{Jane Doe}
  27. % \author[FR]{Jean Dupont}
  28. % \address[US]{University of Life, Somewhere, USA}
  29. % \address[FR]{Universite de la Vie, Quelque Part, France}
  30. %
  31. % N.B. Unlike the document class used for abstract submissions, it is
  32. % possible to have the author associated with more than one address,
  33. % as shown in the example above.
  34. %
  35.  
  36. \author[]{}
  37.  
  38. %----------------------------------------------------------------------
  39. % List of addresses
  40. %
  41. % If there is more than one address, list each using a separate
  42. % \address command using a label to link it to the respective author
  43. % as described above
  44.  
  45. \address[]{}
  46.  
  47. %----------------------------------------------------------------------
  48. % Title page footnotes
  49. %
  50. % If you need to add qualifying information to any of the authors,
  51. % use the \thanksref{} command within the \author command. The
  52. % argument is the label of a corresponding \thanks[label]{text}
  53. % command which contains the footnote text
  54. %
  55. % e.g. you can acknowledge a funding authority for John Doe, using
  56. %
  57. % \author{John Doe\thanksref{ABC}}
  58. % \thanks[ABC]{This work was supported by Institute of Unphysical
  59. % Phenomena under contract no. ABC-123}
  60. %
  61.  
  62. %\thanks[]{}
  63.  
  64. %----------------------------------------------------------------------
  65. % Contact Information
  66. %
  67. % Add the complete postal address, telephone number, fax number, and
  68. % email address of the corresponding author as a special footnote using
  69. % the \corauth[]{} command. This works in a similar way to the \thanks
  70. % command. Add the \corauthref{} command within the \author command.
  71. % The argument is the label of a corresponding \corauth[label]{text}
  72. % command which contains the contact information. Prefix the text with
  73. % Corresponding Author:
  74. %
  75. % e.g. if the contact author is John Doe,
  76. %
  77. % \author{John Doe\corauthref{1}}
  78. % \corauth[1]{Corresponding Author: University of Life, 123 Some St.,
  79. % Somewhere, MI 12345, USA. Phone: (555) 555-5555
  80. % Fax: (555) 555-7777, Email: JDoe@uol.edu}
  81. %
  82.  
  83. \corauth[]{}
  84.  
  85. %----------------------------------------------------------------------
  86.  
  87. %----------------------------------------------------------------------
  88. \end{frontmatter}
  89.  
  90. Manuscript text
  91.  
  92. \end{document}
