# Author affiliations and date formatting

I am using amsart. But I do not want the author affiliations to be in small-caps which seems to be the default style in amsart. Instead I want them to be italics and 8pt. Also I want the date to be printed at the end of the document, after the references. Help.

Welcome to TeX.SE! The amsart document class is meant to be used for papers that will be published in one of the AMS's journals (and similar outlets). Do you have a different journal group in mind for your paper, or papers? If so, do the alternative journals provide their own LaTeX document classes and/or formatting packages? –  Mico Jul 24 '13 at 4:18
yes. i have to submit to a different journal and unfortunately they do not provide any class. But amsart is the only way i know where i can get author affiliations at the end of the document which is one of the formatting requirements of the journal. –  karuna Jul 24 '13 at 5:04

Here is a simple method to achieve this. We need to do the following:

1. Empty the macros \@setdate which prints the date in the title page.
2. Add a newly created macro (viz \@Setdate) to \enddoc@text which prints the affiliation at the end of the document.
3. Set the font style of affiliation to italic and font size to 8pt in the \@setaddresses macro which puts affiliation, current address and email at the end of the document using \enddoc@text hook.

These hacks are now added between \makeatletter and \makeatother in the sample amsart template given below:
