I am facing a problem similar to this post:

How to include abstract into titlepage?

where I would like to include the abstract in the title page. This I managed thanks to the post #8. However,the journal format requires the abstract to be in-between authors's name and address... and this is where I could not find a simple solution by moving around the key command


and this is where I reach my limits too...

Could anyone come with a workaround for this problem?

  • You can try to misuse the author field to insert abstract.

  • Maybe \author{Me\footnote{My street 1, 1A2 3B4 My town}} ?

You may fake the title:

  {\LARGE My Title}\vspace{3ex}

  {\large My Name}\footnote{some remark}


  {\large MyAdress}

  • Well that's one option, but the last one for me. The reason is that I do have several style files, all based on the same structure and variables (authors, address, abstract). If the paper is resubmitted elsewhere then all I have to do is to change the line calling for the style and the paper is re-formatted. With this solution, I have to fake all environments and so on, don't you think?
