Q: Can the email address be changed after the paper is accepted?
Firstly, congrats on your paper getting accepted! Coming to your query, yes, this should be possible. In fact, it would be easier to do if the paper has presently only been accepted and not been published. If it has already been published, it would take more time to make the change. But in all cases, it should be okay to do. This is because the email address (whether a professional address or a personal one) is a key detail of the author’s affiliation. It’s therefore essential to have the updated mail address in the paper. So, you may write to the editor soon. Do note that as we are right in the middle of the holiday season, they may get back to you only after the season, sometime in early or mid-January. But on your part, do send the mail right away.
Now, if your paper has presently only been accepted and not been published, the proofing stage is probably next. So, as a way to prep yourself for this stage, you may find it worthwhile to go through the following resources:
- What is the minimum number of comments to be included while proofing my paper?
- Can I correct an error in citation at the page proof stage?
- Can I replace an image at the proofing stage before publication?
Hope that helps. Again, congrats on the acceptance, and all the best for taking your paper to publication!
