Yes, proofs are sent by email as PDF files and should be checked and returned within 72 hours of receipt. It is the author’s responsibility to check that all the text and data contained in the page proofs are correct and suitable for publication. We are requested to pay particular attention to the author’s names and affiliations as it is essential that these details be accurate when the article is published.
changes to authorship such as addition, deletion, or rearrangement of author names must be made only before the manuscript has been accepted in the case of approving by the journal editor. In this case, the corresponding author must explain the reason of changing and confirm them (which has been signed by all authors of the manuscript). If the manuscript has already been published in an online issue, an erratum is needed. Please contact us via email@example.com in case of any changes (corrections, retractions, erratum, etc.).
