# Add affiliations to the authors' name in the article class

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?

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

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

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{authblk}
\title{This is some thing}
\author[1]{Don Joe}
\author[2]{Smith K.}
\author[1]{Wanderer}
\author[1]{Static}
\affil[1]{TeX.SX}
\affil[2]{Both on a bus}
\date{}                     %% if you don't need date to appear
\setcounter{Maxaffil}{0}
\renewcommand\Affilfont{\itshape\small}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}


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{}:

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

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}


• 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{}.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\newcommand{\footremember}[2]{%
\footnote{#2}
\newcounter{#1}
\setcounter{#1}{\value{footnote}}%
}
\newcommand{\footrecall}[1]{%
\footnotemark[\value{#1}]%
}
\title{How to bowl properly}
\author{%
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?}%
}
\date{}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
The whole example is taken from \href{http://anthony.liekens.net/index.php/LaTeX/MultipleFootnoteReferences}{Anthony Liekens}\ldots
\end{document}


• I feel this should be the answer. – lkahtz Jan 31 at 3:40
