Q: Is it possible to add an affiliation after publishing a manuscript?

1 Answer to this question

From the question, it’s not clear whether you’re referring to a case where the published paper didn’t have any affiliation added and now you want to include one or you’re talking about a case where your affiliation has changed after the paper was published and you’d want the paper to reflect your current affiliation.

If it’s the former, you could go with a formal correction/erratum and request for the affiliation to be updated. If it’s the latter, the affiliation may not need to change if the bulk of the research work was done at the institute indicated by the previous affiliation, though it may still be a good idea to let the journal editor know that your affiliation has changed.
