I'm currently using authblk to typeset authors and corresponding affiliation(s) in a proceeding article, one of the authors has no affiliation.

Commands are the following:


\affil[*]{Dept #1}
\affil[**]{Dept #1}

However, the package does not recognize that Name3 has no affiliation, and it's typeset like it's affiliated with Dept #1.

How should I modify the autlblk package to overcome this?

  • Make a blank affiliation and assign it to Name3? – Seamus Jan 24 '11 at 13:20
  • No, because it will produce an unwanted superscript... – Alessandro Cuttin Jan 24 '11 at 15:47

Just put a single space as the marker for author 3 (you need the space, not just []).

\author[ ]{Name3}
  • 5
    You'll want to add a \hspace{-1ex} after the space in order to get rid of the space between the author name and, if applicable, the following comma. – Andrew D. King Oct 16 '14 at 22:07

I find a single way.

\author[1]{name 1}
\author[2]{name 2}


In the output, if you do not like the upper script in the affiliation, you add
where I use * to present the space. I notice that one space is not enough, you need at least two space. In my case, I use
\affil[ ]{Email:**@**}
then the upper script disappeared.

  • Welcome, which part of the question does this answer? I am a bit confused. – Johannes_B Nov 11 '15 at 18:34
  • Likewise, I'm a little confused about what ends up happening. Would you be able to post a screenshot of the output? – Arun Debray Nov 11 '15 at 19:02
