apa6 revise title page

Postby dsears1 » Tue Jul 12, 2016 4:11 am

Using the apa6 style class, the title is too far down the title page so that the Author Note begins on page 2. How do I remove the vertical space before the title so I can fit the Author Note on the title page? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's the MWE:
  1. \documentclass [man]{apa6}
  2.  
  3. \title{TITLE GOES HERE}
  4. \shorttitle{SHORT TITLE GOES HERE}
  5. \threeauthors{Author Name 1}{Author Name 2}{Author Names 3 and 4}
  6. \threeaffiliations{Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT),\linebreak Schulich School of Music, McGill University, Montreal, Canada}{Music Cognition Research Group, School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, \linebreak Queen Mary University of London, London, UK}{Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music, Media, and Technology (CIRMMT),\linebreak Schulich School of Music, McGill University, Montreal, Canada}
  7. \abstract{TEXT GOES HERE.}
  8. \keywords{cadence, expectation, schema, statistical learning}
  9. \authornote{Funding was provided by a NAME H. NAME fellowship and a NAME doctoral fellowship from the Programme de bourses d'excellence pour étudiants étrangers awarded to AUTHOR 1, FUNDING SOURCES FOR AUTHOR 2, a Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grant and NAME Professorship awarded to AUTHOR 3, and Canadian Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grants and NAMED Research Chair awarded to AUTHOR 4. \linebreak *Corresponding author. Email: \texttt{email@institution.edu}}
  10.  
  11. \begin{document}
  12. \maketitle
  13. \setcounter{secnumdepth}{3}
  14. \section{Model}
  15. \subsection{Probability Estimation}
  16. \subsubsection{Maximum Likelihood}
  17. TEXT GOES HERE.
  18. \end{document}

This is a bug in the class and should be reported.
  1. \usepackage{etoolbox}
  2. \patchcmd{\maketitle}{\vspace*{1in}}{}{}{}
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Works like a dream. Thanks Johannes_B. I don't know how to report the bug. What steps must I take?

I contacted the author, and it seems the input is wrong. The following should be the correct input.

  1. \documentclass[man]{apa6}
  2.  
  3. \usepackage{blindtext}
  4. \title{Wombat}
  5. \threeauthors{Author Name 1}{Author Name 2}{Author Names 3 and 4}
  6. \threeaffiliations{McGill University, Montreal, Canada}{Queen Mary University of London}{McGill University, Montreal, Canada}
  7.  
  8. \authornote{Author Name 1, Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in
  9. Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT), Schulich School of Music,
  10. McGill University; Author Name 2, Music Cognition Research Group,
  11. School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary
  12. University of London; Author Names 3 and 4, Centre for
  13. Interdisciplinary Research in Music, Media, and Technology (CIRMMT),
  14. Schulich School of Music, McGill University.
  15.  
  16. Correspondence concerning this article should be addressed to Author
  17. Name 1, Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and
  18. Technology (CIRMMT), Schulich School of Music, McGill University,
  19. Montreal, Canada. E-mail: email@institution.edu}
  20.  
  21. %\usepackage{etoolbox}
  22. %\patchcmd{\maketitle}{\vspace*{1in}}{}{}{}
  23. \begin{document}
  24. \maketitle
  25. \end{document}


You can find the requirements for title-page formatting beginning on page 23 of the Manual.
