[Tex/LaTex] Create a title page and a separate abstract page with elsarticle`s frontmatter environment

elsarticlefront-matter

I have to use the elsarticle document class and its frontmatter environment. However, I need the title page to be separated on two pages – title information on page 1 and abstract and keywords on page 2. How can I add a pagebreak before the abstract begins?

\documentclass[review, 12pt]{elsarticle}

\usepackage{lineno,hyperref}
\modulolinenumbers[5]

\journal{Journal of TBD}
%% APA style
\bibliographystyle{model5-names}\biboptions{authoryear}

\usepackage{afterpage}

\begin{document}

\begin{frontmatter}

\title{Title here}

\author{author 1\corref{mycorrespondingauthor}\fnref{myfootnotetel}}
\ead{email@mail.com}

\address{address}

\fntext[myfootnotetel]{Tel}

\cortext[mycorrespondingauthor]{Corresponding author}
% PAGEBREAK needed HERE
\begin{abstract}
abstract text
\end{abstract}

\begin{keyword}
\texttt skeyword1\sep keywod2\\
%\MSC[2010] 00-01\sep  99-00  
\vfill{}
Funding note.
\end{keyword}

\end{frontmatter}
\end{document}

Best Answer

It should be the journal editor's job to change the formatting or to provide you with a modified version of elsarticle: the purpose of such a template is getting from authors a clean typescript that can be easily adapted to the needs of a specific journal.

Anyway, you can get what you want by patching a few commands.

\documentclass[review, 12pt]{elsarticle}

\usepackage{lipsum} % just for the example

\usepackage{etoolbox}
\usepackage{lineno}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\modulolinenumbers[5]

\journal{Journal of TBD}
%% APA style
\bibliographystyle{model5-names}\biboptions{authoryear}

\patchcmd{\pprintMaketitle}
 {\hrule}
 {\clearpage\hrule}
 {}{}
\appto\endfrontmatter{\clearpage}

\begin{document}

\begin{frontmatter}

\title{Title here}

\author{author 1\corref{mycorrespondingauthor}\fnref{myfootnotetel}}
\ead{email@mail.com}

\address{address}

\fntext[myfootnotetel]{Tel}

\cortext[mycorrespondingauthor]{Corresponding author}
% PAGEBREAK needed HERE
\begin{abstract}
abstract text
\end{abstract}

\begin{keyword}
\texttt skeyword1\sep keywod2\\
%\MSC[2010] 00-01\sep  99-00  
\end{keyword}

\end{frontmatter}

\section{Introduction}

\lipsum
