I'm using amsart and want to place keywords after abstract but amsart places them in the footnote. Does anyone know how Ι can override this? An example of the code I've been using:

\documentclass[12pt, reqno]{amsart}
\usepackage{ amsthm, amscd, amsfonts, amssymb, graphicx,tikz, color, environ}

    Welcome to TeX.SE! Please edit your answer to provide an example of the code you've tried using so far. Without it, it's difficult to give sufficiently precise advice.

if you're submitting this article to the ams, even if you put the keywords into the abstract, they would be edited to put them into the first-page footnotes. if you're just using the amsart class to prepare a preprint, then my suggestion is to start a new paragraph within the abstract, perhaps like this:

\noindent \textbf{Keywords.} list of keywords

by the way, amssymb automatically loads amsfonts, so that package doesn't need to be loaded separately. also, for amsart, the abstract should go before \maketitle.

    Instead of explicitly using "Keywords", one could also use \keywordsname to have the default "Key words and phrases". Commented May 29, 2012 at 21:40
