Q: Could I change two words in the proof of journal production stage
I found that two words of my manuscript are used inappropriately. Could I change them in the proof of the copy editing.
Welcome to the Q&A forum and thank you for your question!
Yes, you can make changes to the manuscript when you receive a proof from the journal prior to production. Minor revisions are acceptable at the proof stage. However, please do note, not all journals send authors proofs prior to production, so do clarify this with the journal.
Hope this helps. All the best for your research publication!
