This is my first message. I have tried over multiple days to find a way to place affiliations and corresponding authorship for a Journal manuscript using wlscirep.cls in the footnotes, while keeping the author bloc visually unchanged. So far I have not found any satisfactory way of doing so, even using \thanks. Here is my MWE:


\title{My title}

\author[1,*]{John Doe}
\author[2]{John Smith}
\author[2]{An Author}
\author[1]{Another Author}

\affil[*]{Life University}
\affil[2]{Other University}
\affil[*]{Corresponding author}



Since this is my first message on this forum, please let me know if there is anything I did wrong in this request, so that I may improve.


  • Welcome to tex.sx. The document class wlscirep isn't on ctan, so it would be helpful if you said where it can be found. – barbara beeton May 25 '19 at 20:10
  • Hi, the document class is provided by Overleaf using the template for scientific reports found following the link: fr.overleaf.com/latex/templates/… – Benoit Björnen Hamelin May 25 '19 at 21:47
  • So you want the footnotes at the bottom of the page and not at the bottom of the author block, is that correct? – Marijn May 26 '19 at 8:47
  • Yes that is correct – Benoit Björnen Hamelin May 26 '19 at 12:39
