The editor asks to isolate the title and author information on the first page. The second page starts with the abstract and keywords.

Quote from the author policy stating the requirement:

"It is mandatory that the full names, full affiliation with country and email address of every contributing author must be included in title (authorship) page of the manuscript. The first page of the manuscript should have the title of the paper, and the full name, full affiliation with country and email address of every contributing author. The second page of the manuscript should begin with the abstract. Note: Cover letter is not title/authorship page."

I'm using the template (Elsevier’s CAS LaTeX Double-Column Template), and below is a reduced working example:

    Welcome TeX.SE @kosmos :) Do you have more information about what the editor wants? Should the author(s) be on another page or another column or did you mean "separate" with a bigger spacing? Also, does the editor uses LaTeX (and that template) or are they your own choice(s)?

  • Thank you for the welcome. I quote from the editor: "It is mandatory that the full names, full affiliation with country and email address of every contributing author must be included in title (authorship) page of the manuscript. The first page of the manuscript should have the title of the paper, and the full name, full affiliation with country and email address of every contributing author. The second page of the manuscript should begin with the abstract. Note: Cover letter is not title/authorship page." I do not know if the editor uses LaTeX. The template is my choice.

  • That's clearer. I think you should edit the question to add the quote. It provides some hints for answers that will be write down.

    Thank @gildux for the suggestion. I’ve already done just that.

Well, it means you can't just use \maketitle but have to use the titlepage environment to make custom one. See this overleaf page, for example, as starting point. I'll edit my answer a bit later with an MWE based on yours.
