I have a problem; when I add \twocolumn after \onecolumn, my page is breaked :

    \documentclass[twocolumn]{svjour3}  
        ...
        \begin{document}
    %
    \author{123 \and
            456 \and
            789
    }
    \institute{AAAAAA \at
                  BBBBB \\}
    %
\onecolumn
            \maketitle
            \begin{abstract}
              ...
            \end{abstract}

\twocolumn 
        \end{document}

    If you want to change between onecolumn and twocolumn text without a page break consider the multicol package. – Peter Wilson Jan 1 at 20:45
  • you can use the optional argument of \twocolumn to add text that spans over both columns – David Carlisle Jan 1 at 21:19

\twocolumn always starts a new page but has an optional argument that allows the specification of text that spans the columns.

enter image description here

 \documentclass[twocolumn]{svjour3}  
\title{Zzzz the title zzz zzzz zzzz zzzz zzzzz}
\date{today}
\journalname{zz}
        \begin{document}
    %
    \author{123 \and
            456 \and
            789
    }
    \institute{AAAAAA \at
                  BBBBB \\}
    %
\twocolumn[
            \maketitle
            \begin{abstract}
