I'm getting footnotes with both the citation and the reference labelled with superscript round parentheses following the sequence number thus: 1), 2) etc.

I think it may be being caused by the style file, which comes from my publisher.

Is there a way to force normal arabic numbers? I've tried

\renewcommand{\thefootnote}{\arabic{footnote}}

which doesn't work, and package footmisc doesn't appear to have a relevant option.

Here is a MWE:

\documentclass[]{book}

\usepackage{wileySTM}
\crop[noinfo]

\begin{document}

This is the text illustrating a problem with the footnotes.\footnote{And this is the offending footnote}

\end{document}

The style file is at: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/37127482/wileySTM.sty

Thanks, Chris.

    Welcome to Tex.SX. It is very hard to answer your question as we don't know what documentclass you publisher gave you. could you prepare a minimal working example and add a link to your documentclass to help us understand what the problem might be ?

  • Thanks Elad.How can I post a link to the style file. Is there somewhere I can upload it to? Thanks, Chris. Commented May 12, 2017 at 11:54
  • You could either post the link that was provided for you, or use any free storage provider you can find (i.e. google drive, dropbox, mega...)

    Hi I've now added a MWE as requested Commented May 12, 2017 at 17:15
  • Presumably the style file produces this type of label as that is what the publisher wants. In which case you should not change it. Commented May 12, 2017 at 19:03

The sty package redefines \@makefnmark and @makefntext which is what you want to redefine.

I quickly copied and pasted their definition and removed the extra ); please ask whether you can opt to make these changes and still get your work accepted

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{wileySTM}
\crop[noinfo]
\makeatletter
\def\@makefnmark{\hbox{\@textsuperscript{\normalfont\@thefnmark}}}
\renewcommand{\@makefntext}[1]{%
  \hangindent4mm
  \leavevmode
  \hb@xt@4mm{\normalfont\@thefnmark\hss}#1}
\makeatother
\begin{document}

This is the text illustrating a problem with the footnotes.\footnote{And this is the offending footnote}

\end{document}

EDIT

Also, if you like their sty file for many reasons, but want to keep the default style for the footnotes, you could save the commands before loading the package and then reinstate their functioning, as shown below

\documentclass{book}
\makeatletter
\let\@myfnmark\@makefnmark
\let\@myfntext\@makefntext
\makeatother
\usepackage{wileySTM}
\crop[noinfo]
\makeatletter
\let\@makefnmark\@myfnmark
\let\@makefntext\@myfntext
\makeatother
\begin{document}

This is the text illustrating a problem with the footnotes.\footnote{And this is the offending footnote}

\end{document}
