# Problems typesetting footnotes with RevTeX 4-1

The RevTeX classes, for some of the APS journals, typeset all footnotes in the bibliography (as endnotes). Although it works perfectly if I try with RevTeX4, I consistently have problems doing this under RevTeX4-1. Here's a compact example.

\documentclass[prl,aps,10pt,twocolumn]{revtex4-1}
\begin{document}
\title{A nearly minimal example using RevTeX4-1}
\author{Niel de Beaudrap}
\noaffiliation
\date{\today}
\begin{abstract}
In this letter, we attempt to typeset a footnote.
We find that it fails to be properly typeset with the package revtex4-1'',
whereas it works properly with the package revtex4''.
\end{abstract}

\maketitle

The following should appear in the bibliography~\footnote{%
This compiles correctly under RevTeX4.}.
It is our hope that others are able to reproduce our results
and identify potential sources of error.

\begin{thebibliography}{99}
\end{thebibliography}
\end{document}


If I use the nofootinbib option (which turns off end notes), the package behaves properly under both RevTeX4 and RevTeX4-1.

I can manually insert my footnotes into the bibliography, but I would rather not. Help?

+1 high quality publication material ;) – Kit Feb 15 '11 at 12:24

You have to run bibtex in order for the footnotes to appear, so in particular, you can't use \begin{thebibliography}{99}...\end{thebibliography} but rather \bibliography{mybib}, which RevTeX4.1 will rewrite as though it says \bibliography{mybib,mypaperNotes} and create a file mypaperNotes.bib with the endnotes in it.
