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

\documentclass{article}

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

\makeatletter
\renewcommand{\maketitle}{
  \renewcommand*\footnoterule{}
  {\Large\bfseries\@title}\par
  \medskip
  \@author\par
  \medskip
  \@thanks % adding \@thanks here causes the footnote to be typeset at the bottom of the page
  \medskip
  \hline
}
\makeatother

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

    Why don't you use the journal's class? – cfr Jun 10 '17 at 0:48
  • 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. – rberaldo Jun 10 '17 at 0:52

    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. – barbara beeton Jun 10 '17 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.
