I recently submitted a paper to a math journal with standard latex formatting, but they sent an email back saying that the contact details for the corresponding author should be in the document itself. Where exactly does this mean? On the title page next to my name?

Right now it looks like this:


First name Last name

April 14, 2014


The rest of the paper then follows ...


[1] reference...

Where exactly should I include my email address? I am the only author of this paper.

    Look at other papers printed by the same journal. Commented Apr 15, 2014 at 12:19
  • What does the journal's guide to authors say?

    I doubt it matters where you put the contact information in the submitted version (the journal will reformat it if accepted). Sometimes it's a footnote on the first page, sometimes it's arranged next to the author's name, and sometimes it's at the end of the paper. The easiest thing is probably to use the amsart document class, which is common in mathematics and will handle this automatically (it puts it at the end). Commented Apr 15, 2014 at 13:19

    In many templates, ams among them, it is \author{John Smith} \email{[email protected]}

This depends entirely on the journal's style. They should provide a LaTeX class or template that explicitly identifies how to include the corresponding author's contact info, or if not that, a web page with instructions on how to include contact information. Without knowing which journal you're talking about, I don't think I can say anything more than that.
