# How to make this template for an article? [duplicate]

I want to separate the address of the authors with a box where I will put the abstract according to the graphic template below. Right alignment is important.

One possibility is to put \maketitle and the abstract within a minipage, then borrowing from this answer for the styling of the affiliation and this answer for the proper centering of the minipage.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{kantlipsum}
\makeatletter
\def\and{%
\end{tabular}%
\begin{tabular}[t]{c}}%
\def\@fnsymbol#1{\ensuremath{\ifcase#1\or a\or b\or c\or d\or e\or f\or g\or h\or i\else\@ctrerr\fi}}
\makeatother
\title{My Title}
\author{Luke Skywalker\thanks{Some Affiliation} \and Mara Jade\thanks{Some Other Affiliation}}
\date{}
\begin{document}
\noindent\makebox[\textwidth][c]{%
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
\maketitle
\begin{abstract}
\kant[1]
\end{abstract}
\end{minipage}}
\section{Introduction}
\kant[2]
\end{document}

• What if I want to use numbers instead of letters in "a Some Affiliation" for "1 Some Affiliation"? – Itamar Barbosa de Lima Dec 13 '18 at 20:55
• A simple replace of the letters in the \def\@fnsymbol line, it picks from there. – aoi Dec 13 '18 at 21:09
