# Standard article.sty doesn't recognize the \address{} command

When I write articles to journals, I always use an already given template where I can put relevant information about the authors such as the addresses and e-mails.

But, for the journal that I am writing a new article, I am advised to use the standard article.sty. I can't use the \address{} because latex returns me the following error:

Undefined control sequence. \address


my .tex file has the following contents:

\RequirePackage[l2tabu, orthodox]{nag}
\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage{siunitx}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage[colorlinks=false, pdfborder={0 0 0}]{hyperref}
\usepackage{cleveref}

\begin{document}
\title{my title}
\author{Author1$^1$, Author2$^2$ and Author3$^1$}
\address{$^1$ address1}
\address{$^2$ address2}

\maketitle


How can I solve this problem?

• tabular is the macro or is the package? where I can find it? thank you for the quick answer. – mad Dec 20 '14 at 23:00
• Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. The environment. Kurt is suggesting that you use \begin{tabular}{}...\end{tabular}. If you post a minimal working example (MWE), somebody can show you. – cfr Dec 20 '14 at 23:04

The intended usage in article is to place address information after the author separated by \\ and to separate individual authors with \and

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage{siunitx}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage[colorlinks=false, pdfborder={0 0 0}]{hyperref}
\usepackage{cleveref}

\begin{document}
\title{my title}
\author{Author1\\
email@somewhere
\and
Author2\\
