How can one typeset the associations under the authors, by means of \renewcommand{\maketitle}{} or using the titling package? I'm trying to get something like this:

Image of the desired title

What I have so far


\title{A very fancy title}
\author{John Doe\thanks{University of Doeland}}

  \@thanks % adding \@thanks here causes the footnote to be typeset at the bottom of the page

  • Please add a minimal working example (MWE).

    Why don't you use the journal's class?

  • The image is just an example I found, @cfr. I'm not actually submitting any papers, but would like to learn how changing the position of the footnotes can be accomplished.

    what you show for "thanks" looks terribly like an institutional address. take a look for how to enter an author address with the article document class. that may be what you are looking for. Commented Jun 10, 2017 at 1:30

\maketitle is one of the most confused commands. It only makes sense for repeated articles that shall keep the same appearance.

I suggest not to use it for single papers or articles.
