# How to create a title page for appendix?

Currently I use \usepackage{appendix}. After command \appendix, each \section{Section Name} will be shown as "Appendix A. Section Name".

I wish to have a title page for the appendix. Specifically, I want to let the appendix begin with title "Appendix for My Paper XXX" and some description paragraphs, and then start with each section. Is it possible in LaTex?

• You can try to do that with the titling package, which yields tools to customise the \maketitle command. Nov 23 '19 at 23:36

As you haven't given an MWE I don't know what you have done but as you mention \section I assume you are using the article class.

% appendixpageprob3.tex  SE 517746 title page and text

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[page]{appendix} % print appendices title
\renewcommand{\appendixpagename}{Appendix for My Paper XXX} % Appendices title
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\section{Section}
\lipsum[1]
\clearpage  % move to another page
\begin{appendices}
Some text after the Appendices heading.
\clearpage % move to another page

\section{In appendices}
\lipsum[1]

\end{appendices}

\end{document}
