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

\vskip\z@\@plus2fill\box\abstractbox\vskip\z@\@plus1fill

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. – user11232 Mar 22 '12 at 11:20
  • Maybe \author{Me\footnote{My street 1, 1A2 3B4 My town}} ? – yo' Mar 22 '12 at 13:08
  • Intriguing arrangement, which journal is this? – Yiannis Lazarides Mar 22 '12 at 13:59
  • Wildlife Biology, a small journal for applied research in ecology – Deadpixel Mar 22 '12 at 14:22

You may fake the title:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\begin{center}
  {\LARGE My Title}\vspace{3ex}

  {\large My Name}\footnote{some remark}
\end{center}\bigskip

\begin{abstract}
    \lipsum[1]
\end{abstract}\bigskip

\begin{center}
  {\large MyAdress}
\end{center}

\end{document}
  • 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? – Deadpixel Mar 22 '12 at 15:21
