# Merged author affiliation footnotes in REVTeX

TeX - LaTeX Asked by D Darren on November 29, 2020

(My previous question was closed as a duplicate despite me explaining how the suggested answers do not answer it at all. Please read until the end before voting to close.)

The REVTeX package automatically merges some footnotes in the author list. For instance, consider the following.

documentclass[superscriptaddress]{revtex4-1}

begin{document}

author{Author A}
thanks{Footnote.}
affiliation{University A}
affiliation{University B}

author{Author B}
thanks{Footnote.}
affiliation{University B}

maketitle

end{document}


Here, the repeated footnotes (affiliation B and the thanks footnote) are merged:

documentclass[superscriptaddress]{revtex4-1}

begin{document}

author{Author A}
thanks{Footnote.}
email{[email protected]}
affiliation{University A}
affiliation{University B}

author{Author B}
thanks{Footnote.}
email{[email protected]}
affiliation{University B}

maketitle

end{document}


I would like to merge the common thanks footnote, but keep the email footnotes separate. Altogether, this would give 3 footnotes, with each author having two (in addition to affiliation). Is this possible with REVTeX? If not, is there an easy way to patch it to allow for this behavior?

This issue was previously raised here. The answer does not provide a solution to the problem, as it uses only one affiliation footnote (e.g. thanks but no email), in which case REVTeX handles everything well. The solution in that answer does not work when two different footnotes are used, as I have explicitly demonstrated above, and as has been pointed out in the comments to that answer.

A workaround is to put the email after affiliation, but this places the footnote mark in the affiliation instead of next to the author’s name, and it only works when there is no ambiguity (no affiliation shared between different authors).
