It is the reading of an electronic copy of a publication to detect and correct production errors of text. Proofreaders are expected to be consistently accurate by default because they occupy the last stage of typographic production before publication. Your Editorial Assistant will keep you informed as to your article’s progress throughout the production process. Proofs will be sent by PDF to the corresponding author and should be returned promptly. If there are some questions regarding data in the manuscript, the queries will be inserted in the proofs. You will be asked to return the proofs with youe comments or corrections by e-mail.
The author(s) names and affiliations should be checked very carefuly.
Author’s corrections provide a means of correcting errors of omission (e.g., author names or citations) and errors of a scientific nature that do not alter the overall basic results or conclusions of a published article. Author’s corrections include corrections for typographical errors arising during typesetting processes, substantial changes in content, e.g. new results, corrected values and changes of title and authorship are not allowed without the approval of Executive Editor. Revised proofs can be sent to the author for a second time only in case of multiple errors or corrections.
Articles may be withdrawn, retracted, removed or replaced after publication if they contain substantial errors that cannot be corrected by publishing an Erratum or a Corrigendum, or if ethical violations come to light after publication.
