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?

  • 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.

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:
