According to AMA guidelines, the preferred order of footnotes for the Journal of the American Medical Association is: 

  1. Author affiliations
  2. Death of a publishing author (introduced with a death dagger)
  3. Information about the group members
  4. Contact information for the author to whom correspondence should be addressed

Not all of these will be present in all articles. For example the footnotes for an article might look like this:

Author Affiliations: Author affiliations are listed at the end of this article.

Group Information: Members of the Dicartha Group are listed at the end of this article.

Corresponding Author: Sardisel Bourtrand, MD, PhD, Department of Medicine, University Hospital Blanche, 5454 Rocky Rd, Jasmine, AR 00000 (
