Working on a project, the article we are writing is written by me and someone else. How should I fill the \author?

What about \author{LASTNAME1, FIRSTNAME1 \& LASTNAME2, FIRSTNAME2}? It doesn't convince me, but it might be correct.

Is there any better way to do that?

P.S: I'm using the article class and the authors will be shown once with \maketitle{}.

The \maketitle command with \author allows a simple separation of two (or more) authors by using the \and command. See code below for some inspiration.


  LastName1, FirstName1\\
  \texttt{[email protected]}
  LastName2, FirstName2\\
  \texttt{[email protected]}
\title{Usage of the \texttt{\textbackslash author} command}

    +1 for \and, which I've not seen in many years of using latex. I've not needed this (and will not likely ever use it) because the journals for which I write each have their own way of handling such things.

    @Tomas: I prefer to give language options globally. So other packages are also able to use them if applicable. Nov 5, 2010 at 11:43

    @ForkrulAssail Of course, just use \\[3ex] instead of \and ;)

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Textclass specific LaTeX commands.

\tnotetext[t1]{This document is a collaborative effort.}

\tnotetext[t2]{The second title footnote which is a longer longer than the first
one and with an intention to fill in up more than one line while formatting.}


\ead{[email protected]}



\fntext[fn1]{This is the specimen author footnote.}
