In Lyx, I have to insert 3 authors in an article. For each one of them I will have to specify their email address and the university they belong to. Two belong to the same one:

author_a, author_a@email.com, university_1
author_b, author_b@email.com, university_2
author_c, author_c@email.com, university_2

How do I do this in Lyx? I tried looking at this, but it's quite confusing. Could anybody write me step-by-step how to do this?

Thanks a lot.

Or use forced newlines (CTRL+Enter) Multiple authors with newlines

Easy as that ;)

that does work. Is that a standard way of doing this? (I'm asking, I don't know!) Often I see authors' names with affiliations below. –  Ricky Robinson Sep 21 '12 at 16:04

choose from the paragraph menu author. Then insert the name of author_A, then choose a footnote from the menu and insert in this footnote an URL (from insert->URL) and after elaving the url window the University as normal text. Now Leave the footnote window and insert with Ctrl-L the LaTeX code (Evil Red Text) \and. Now do the same for author_B and author_D without leaving the author field.

Thank you. I did as you said, but the \and operator is hiding everything there is before. I mean, in the resulting pdf file, I only see author C. Anyhow, the footnotes are appearing in the bottom of the page, which is not what I was looking for. They should be right below the author name, right? Either all together, or more neatly below the corresponding person. –  Ricky Robinson Sep 19 '12 at 16:44
then use a tabular for every author for name and email. –  Herbert Sep 19 '12 at 21:58
I can't see the reason for using footnotes. Does the question state anything like that? Or do you mean to reference them? In which case I would use a bibliography, such as Bibtex –  Wilhelmsen Sep 21 '12 at 13:45
A \footnote in the authors part is automatically converted into a \thanks command which should be used by default! –  Herbert Sep 21 '12 at 14:24
it doesn't seem to work here anyway –  Ricky Robinson Sep 21 '12 at 16:00
