I am using the \documentclass{article} to write an article. how can I add the affiliation to the author's name like the following picture?

enter image description here

And, this document class has a date under the names. Can I omit it?


Using authblk maybe it's better to do something like:

\title{This is some thing}
\author[1]{Don Joe}
\author[2]{Smith K.}
\affil[2]{Both on a bus}
\date{}                     %% if you don't need date to appear

This way, you can mix affiliations.

  • Thanks @Harish Kumar for very helpful answer. I do a have a similar question here. Would highly appreciate if you have a look on this and provide any answer. Thanks – MYaseen208 Apr 15 '16 at 16:21
  • It doesn't work in amsart class. Wasted a lot of time on this. – user2679290 Oct 29 '19 at 17:05

When I've needed to use \maketitle, a trick I've used is to abuse \date{}:

\title{My Title}
\author{Author One$^1$ \and Author Two$^2$}
    $^1$Organization 1\\%
    $^2$Organization 2\\[2ex]%

    Quick and dirty, but quite effective (!). Thanks – loved.by.Jesus Jul 10 '17 at 21:10
  • This is really handy! – Raul Guarini Nov 28 '17 at 23:50
  • I normally manipulate the author field to add affiliations, but I think the date manipulation works better. In the author field, you can't increase spacing between name and additional objects. – cryptic0 Feb 22 '19 at 14:12
  • Hi, I am using the above but "No institute given" text is comming after the names of the authors. – Isla_Bonita Feb 25 at 5:31

I always use a trick I learned from Anthony Liekens, which is used for showing multiple affiliations per author. Omitting the date is as easy as using \date{}.

\title{How to bowl properly}
  The Dude\footremember{alley}{Holly Star Lanes Bowling Alley}%
  \and Walter Sobchak\footremember{trailer}{Probably in a trailer park}%
  \and Jesus Quintana\footrecall{alley} \footnote{Mexico?}%
  \and Uli Kunkel\footrecall{trailer} \footnote{Germany?}%
The whole example is taken from \href{http://anthony.liekens.net/index.php/LaTeX/MultipleFootnoteReferences}{Anthony Liekens}\ldots
