Can somebody explain to me how to make a footnote in revtex4, so that it is placed on the same page as text and not in the bibliography?

Welcome to TeX.sx! If you are using revtex4 to submit a paper to a journal, then I don't think you should try to modify this: the footnotes are placed with the bibliography becomes the journal wants it to be so. Otherwise you can use the nofootinbib option (see the answer by cgnieder below). – Corentin Dec 15 '12 at 17:21

revtex4 has an option nofootinbib (presumably this will change all footnotes):


\textheight=2in %just for this example
author  = "Arnold Author",
title   = "Book title",
year    = "2012"

Some text\footnote{With a footnote} and a citation~\cite{book}.

Yes,but I'm finishing my thesis that has been written in the form of an article.Is there any other solution to my problem within \documentclass[11pt,article]{revtex4} ? – Boki Dec 15 '12 at 19:08
If i use \documentclass[11pt,article]{revtex4} I get LaTeX Warning: Unused global option(s): [article]. which means there is no article option?! Other than that: why not \documentclass[11pt,article,nofootinbib]{revtex4} – clemens Dec 15 '12 at 19:12
It works!(\documentclass[11pt,article,nofootinbib]{revtex4})I just hope it won't alter anything else in my work.Thanks,you've saved me from loosing few more hours. – Boki Dec 15 '12 at 19:34
