In Lyx, I have to insert 3 authors in an article. For each one of them I will have to specify their email address and the university they belong to. Two belong to the same one:

author_a, author_a@email.com, university_1
author_b, author_b@email.com, university_2
author_c, author_c@email.com, university_2

How do I do this in Lyx? I tried looking at this, but it's quite confusing. Could anybody write me step-by-step how to do this?

Thanks a lot.

  • I am not a LyX user, but I would strongly suspect this depends on which document class you are using. Can you provide that information? – Andrew Swann Apr 10 '15 at 8:20
  • 2 years and a half later, not really! ;) – Ricky Robinson Apr 10 '15 at 10:35
  • I don't understand your comment. Looking at the answers below the low level \and is an appropriate solution for article but not for amsart where mark up of multiple authors is radically different. – Andrew Swann Apr 10 '15 at 12:09
  • My question is from September 2012. Thank you for your interest, but... I've moved on since then! :D – Ricky Robinson Apr 10 '15 at 14:13
  • Ah, I see - I didn't look at the edit history. However, questions and answers here are meant to be of use to future visitors, so I think it would be good if the question stated which set of document classes you wish answers to apply to. – Andrew Swann Apr 10 '15 at 14:22

Or use forced newlines (CTRL+Enter) Multiple authors with newlines

Easy as that ;)

  • that does work. Is that a standard way of doing this? (I'm asking, I don't know!) Often I see authors' names with affiliations below. – Ricky Robinson Sep 21 '12 at 16:04

choose from the paragraph menu author. Then insert the name of author_A, then choose a footnote from the menu and insert in this footnote an URL (from insert->URL) and after elaving the url window the University as normal text. Now Leave the footnote window and insert with Ctrl-L the LaTeX code (Evil Red Text) \and. Now do the same for author_B and author_D without leaving the author field.

enter image description here

  • Thank you. I did as you said, but the \and operator is hiding everything there is before. I mean, in the resulting pdf file, I only see author C. Anyhow, the footnotes are appearing in the bottom of the page, which is not what I was looking for. They should be right below the author name, right? Either all together, or more neatly below the corresponding person. – Ricky Robinson Sep 19 '12 at 16:44
  • then use a tabular for every author for name and email. – user2478 Sep 19 '12 at 21:58
  • I can't see the reason for using footnotes. Does the question state anything like that? Or do you mean to reference them? In which case I would use a bibliography, such as Bibtex – chwi Sep 21 '12 at 13:45
  • A \footnote in the authors part is automatically converted into a \thanks command which should be used by default! – user2478 Sep 21 '12 at 14:24
  • it doesn't seem to work here anyway – Ricky Robinson Sep 21 '12 at 16:00
Author one \and{ Author two } \and{ Author three }

Just add the accolades in LaTeX code and it will work.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! This syntax is slightly wrong I'm afraid, it should be Author one \and Author two \and Author three. The \and command does take an argument, it is just a separator. – Torbjørn T. Apr 2 '15 at 18:08

    (I meant to say 'does not take an argument'.) – Torbjørn T. Apr 3 '15 at 5:34
