I'm using overleaf for a paper and I'm using a journal template with the following in the preamble:

%
\documentclass[%
 reprint,
 amsmath,amssymb,
 aps,
 ]{revtex4-1}

\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{gensymb}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{graphicx}% Include figure files
\usepackage{dcolumn}% Align table columns on decimal point
\usepackage{bm}% bold math

\begin{document}

\preprint{APS/123-QED}

\title{Classifying Overlapping Galaxies For Weak Lensing Surveys}

The output on the title is

"Classifying Overlapping Galaxies For Weak Lensing Surveys*"

How do I get rid of the asterisk?

  • I cannot reproduce your problem... If I add \maketitle and \end{document} to the lines you posted, the title is displayed correctly, without any asterisk. – summer Mar 17 '15 at 4:19

Although you haven't shown this, remove \thanks that follows the \title, since it's used as an annotation for \title in the form of a footnote.

enter image description here

\documentclass[%
 reprint,
 amsmath,amssymb,
 aps,
 ]{revtex4-1}

\begin{document}

\preprint{APS/123-QED}

\title{Classifying Overlapping Galaxies For Weak Lensing Surveys}
%\thanks{Some title footnote}% This inserts a title-related footnote

\maketitle

\end{document}
