I am writing a paper using \documentclass[twocolumn]{svjour3} for a Springer journal. Journal format requires the title of the abstract (i.e. the word "Abstract", not the title of the article) seem independently on the upper left corner of the abstract text, like this:

" Abstract

SNOW-V is a stream cipher proposed by Ekdahl et al. at IACR ToSC 2019(3) with an objective to be deployed as the encryption primitive in 5G systems. The stream cipher offers 256-bit security and is ready for deployment in the post-quantum era, in which as a rule of thumb (due to Grover’s algorithm), quantum security will vary as the square root of the classical security parameters."

In my code, the title "Abstract" is positioned with the abstract text at the beginning, like this:

"Abstract Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Ut purus elit, vestibulum ut, placerat ac, adipiscing vitae, felis. Curabitur dictum gravida mauris. Nam arcu libero, nonummy eget, consectetuer id, vulputate a, magna. Donec vehicula augue eu neque. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Mauris ut leo. Cras viverra metus rhoncus sem."

How can I position the title "Abstract" as in the first case? Below is my code:

Strange that the journal wouldn't provide that out-of-the-box. I'd just add a paragraph break at the beginning of the abstract (using something like \leavevmode\par):

enter image description here

    \keywords{bla1 \and bla2 \and bla3.}
