I am using the aastex.lyx template to write an article and I cannot find a way to remove the "Received; -------- Accepted" line coming after the title. Does anyone know how to remove it ?

Looking into aastex.cls, the macro responsible for typesetting "Received/Accepted" is \@dates with the following definition:

\def\@dates{\ifx\@title\@empty\else {Received}\space%
\fi}%                                                 %

Disabling \@dates seems to do the trick.






As you're using LyX, you have to add the code lines from \makeatletter to \makeatother into your LaTeX preamble.
