How do I make changes to my article proof?

Modified on Thu, 18 Apr 2024 at 10:58 AM



After an article has been accepted for publication, the Production team will send proofs to the authors for their final approval. This is an important stage of the publication process as it allows authors to review their work and make any necessary minor adjustments to the formatting before it is published. The Production team will work closely with the authors to ensure that all changes are made in a timely and efficient manner and that the final version of the article is of the highest quality possible. Once the authors have approved the proofs, the article will be ready for publication and will be shared with readers around the world.
