I was using revtex4 and the authors were written in the most natural way, that is you first write all the authors' names and then you list the affiliations with the proper numbering.

Then, when I moved to revtex4-1 the authors ended up being grouped together according to the shared affiliation, and otherwise the scheme would be first author's name, then their affiliation, then new author's name etc etc, which is not what I want.

How can I have the standard format "all the authors' names, then all the affiliations" with revtex4-1?

This is what I was doing



 \thanks{Equal contributions}
\affiliation{university of london}
\thanks{Equal contributions}
\affiliation{university of madrid}
\affiliation{another university of madrid}

and so far the output is

university of london
university of madrid
another university of madrid

whereas of course what I want is

Donald 1 , Peter 2,3 
1 university of london
2 university of madrid
3 another university of madrid



My mistake was to include groupedaddress. By removing it the problem is solved.

  • revtex4-1 is obsolete (and so not necessarly installed in a standard tex system), the current version is revtex4-2 – Ulrike Fischer Apr 12 at 22:19
  • @UlrikeFischer thank you. Unfortunately with revtex4-2 I have the same problem. – 3sm1r Apr 12 at 22:22

    Quite possible. But your chance to get help are better if your example use a current version. – Ulrike Fischer Apr 12 at 22:33
