Hi,

How to code many authors and one address without repeating the address in the text of article?

I code this:

\author{Moutinho, N. M. S. \thanks{Engenharia Elétrica, Área de Exatas, Faculdade Ingá, Rodovia PR 317, nº 6114, 87035-510, Maringá, Paraná, \texttt{name (at) mail dot com}} \and  Gentilho Junior, E. G. \thanks{Laboratório de Controle Avançado, Robótica e Engenharia Biomédica, Departamento de Engenharia Elétrica, Universidade Estadual de Londrina Centro de Tecnologia e Urbanismo, Rodovia Celso Garcia Cid (PR 445), Km 380, 86057-970, Londrina, Paraná, \texttt{name (at) mail dot com}} \and Rosa Filho, J. E. A. \thanks{Laboratório de Controle Avançado, Robótica e Engenharia Biomédica, Departamento de Engenharia Elétrica, Universidade Estadual de Londrina Centro de Tecnologia e Urbanismo, Rodovia Celso Garcia Cid (PR 445), Km 380, 86057-970, Londrina, Paraná, \texttt{name (at) mail dot com}} \and Gaino, R. \thanks{Laboratório de Controle Avançado, Robótica e Engenharia Biomédica, Departamento de Engenharia Elétrica, Universidade Estadual de Londrina Centro de Tecnologia e Urbanismo, Rodovia Celso Garcia Cid (PR 445), Km 380, 86057-970, Londrina, Paraná, \texttt{name (at) mail dot com}} \and Covacic, 	M. R.\thanks{Laboratório de Controle Avançado, Robótica e Engenharia Biomédica, Departamento de Engenharia Elétrica, Universidade Estadual de Londrina Centro de Tecnologia e Urbanismo, Rodovia Celso Garcia Cid (PR 445), Km 380, 86057-970, Londrina, Paraná, \texttt{name (at) mail dot com}} }

Is there another way to code latex and get only one address shared by many authors???

• Hi Nilson,

Thanks for your question. I gave it a try, take a look at the result and let me know what you think. Btw. I removed all special characters and email addresses.

\documentclass[titlepage]{article}
\usepackage[brazilian]{babel}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[onehalfspacing]{setspace}

\begin{document}

\title{Some Fancy Title}
\author{
Moutinho, N. M. S. (\texttt{name (at) mail dot com}) \\
\multicolumn{1}{p{.8\textwidth}}{\centering\emph{Engenharia Eletrica, Area de Exatas, Faculdade Inga, Rodovia PR 317, no 6114, 87035-510, Maringa, Parana}} \\
\and Gentilho Junior, E. G. (\texttt{name (at) mail dot com}) \\
\and Rosa Filho, J. E. A. (\texttt{name (at) mail dot com}) \\
\and Gaino, R. (\texttt{name (at) mail dot com}) \\
\and Covacic, M. R. (\texttt{name (at) mail dot com})\\
\multicolumn{1}{p{.8\textwidth}}{\centering\emph{Laboratorio de Controle Avancado, Robotica e Engenharia Biomedica, Departamento de Engenharia Eletrica, Universidade Estadual de Londrina Centro de Tecnologia e Urbanismo, Rodovia Celso Garcia Cid (PR 445), Km 380, 86057-970, Londrina, Parana}}\\
}
\maketitle
\end{document}

thank’s

Could u pls help me, i used \documentclass[chap, 12pt, nocenter]{thesis} for my thesis but chapter not printing
thanks

• tom

Hi Yogan,

I assume this is the document class you are referring to. Please provide a minimal working example. The code below prints chapter headings correctly. Note, the option chap doesn’t exist. Did you mean chapterbib instead?

\documentclass[chapterbib, 12pt, nocenter]{thesis}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
\blinddocument
\end{document}

I believe it is [oneside|twoside] not [onepage|twopage].

• tom

Fixed, thanks!

7. Raphael

Thanks for the illustration of the documentclass options!

‘openright’ always starts a chapter on the right (odd page). Why is this default for scrbook, why does it make sense? I’m interested in the advantages of ‘openright’ (disadvantages would be the waste of an even page and the waste of paper). Is there any?
Or is ‘openright’ only a matter of taste?

• tom

I’d say it’s a matter of style. Most decent books start new chapters on an odd page and therefore it makes sense that openright is the default. If you prefer a document without blank pages between chapters, either use the document class scr­reprt or change it through the openany option.

Cheers, Tom.

Very good help.

Thank you very much

Hi, I have a question as well. I am using \documentclass[nopreprint,times,3p,final]{elsarticle}, but still is appearing in footnote the preprint. What would be the solution?

• tom

Hi there,

I assume you use the elsarticle class for something other that submitting an article. According to the documentation, there is no option nopreprint. My suggestion is to download the class file and manually remove the line that says “Preprint submitted to …” (on line 451). Then, place the class file in your project directory.

HTH,
Tom

• csg

Thanks, I give a try now.

Hi,

First off the post was very helpful.

Second, I like to double space after every period. I know normally LaTex formats everything so it always shows up as one space no matter how many you type in.
I heard there was an option you could put in brackets after the document class (ie \documentclass [in here] {article} ) but I don’t know what could be.

Is this true or is there some other way I could add a double space after each period?

Thanks so much!

• tom

That’s an interesting question, which I can’t remember having seen before. Apparently, single spacing is referred to as ‘french spacing’. So, by adding the following command to your preamble, you’ll get double spacing between sentences:

\nonfrenchspacing

%Revert back to single spacing
\frenchspacing

Best, Tom.

11. Shakthi

what is meant by \document class{ws-dmaa}.is there any required software to run this?

• Hi Shakthi,

It’s the name of the class file. Look for a ws-dmaa.cls file and place it in the project folder.

Best, Tom
