I have a working paper with a colleague from the same institution, so we entered:

\author{A B \and C d}

how can I now add affiliation, so that its for both authors (centred), and not only for one of them? I would prefer not to use extra packages if possible.

The most simple solution (which is not to say it is the best) is not to use \and.

\author{Author One\qquad Author Two\\Affiliation}

That's really most simple. (+1) – Thorsten Donig Feb 21 '11 at 18:17
Should read "simplest" not "most simple". – mefathy Apr 11 at 20:33

At the moment I see no other solution than using e. g. the authblk package. For details please refer to the package manual.


\title{Two Authors with same Affiliation}
\author{Author One}
\author{Author Two}



The blindtext package is only for creating dummy text thus not part of the solution

Thanks @Thorsten Donig for very helpful answer. I do a have a similar question here. Would highly appreciate if you have a look on this and provide any answer. Thanks – MYaseen208 Apr 15 at 16:23

For cleaner definition, another solution is to use the \publishers{} field of Koma-Script classes.

\author{Author One \and Author Two}
\date{\today}                          %or \date{} to not print date

N.B.: use \and between each authors.
