Where does the corresponding author go in a paper?

The corresponding author's name should be followed by an asterisk, and the corresponding author's e-mail address should be put below the first page of the document. The aim of this information is that readers can contact you if they have questions about your work or would like to give you feedback on your manuscript.

Additionally, all authors are required to provide their names and email addresses during submission of the manuscript. This information will be included in the published version of the article.

If there are multiple authors from one institution then they should be listed alphabetically with the last name preceding the first name. For example, the author list for this article would be given as Miller, John D. et al.

For articles with more than three authors, such as review papers or books, the format is up to the author of the document. However, it is recommended that you use the full names of the authors rather than using abbreviations in order to avoid confusion. For example, instead of using "AA" for the first author and "BB" for the second author, use "John A. Smith" and "Jane R. Jones", respectively.

Please note that only the authors' names appearing in the author list of the article itself should be provided, unless otherwise instructed.

Who is the corresponding author of a scientific paper?

The corresponding author is the point of contact for editors, readers, and outside researchers with questions concerning the paper's contents. The corresponding author is frequently also the final author, however she or he might be put first, or even in the middle of the author list. All other authors on the paper are considered co-corresponding authors.

For papers published in journals that do not use an "author order" system, the editor will usually select the corresponding author based on their expertise with respect to the subject matter of the paper. For multi-authored papers, each author listed on the paper has an equal right to be called the corresponding author.

In cases where there is more than one author from your institution who should receive credit as the corresponding author, it is important to clarify which name should appear first on the paper. If these individuals work in different departments or institutions, they may prefer different orders for their names. For example, one author may want their name to appear first because they are the senior member of the team while another might want this honor bestowed upon them because they contributed most to the research project. It is up to the individual authors to decide how they would like their names ordered.

As well as being responsible for communicating with the editor, readers, and others, the corresponding author also acts as a point of contact for information about the paper itself.

How do you determine the corresponding author?

Each author accepts responsibility for the paper (or should). If you have any questions concerning the paper, please contact the corresponding author.

In case there are more than two authors, they are listed in alphabetical order. The last name of the first author is used as a reference point for determining the order of other authors.

If an author has not been in contact with the journal for several years, one or more replacements may be invited to become authors. These people would then be indicated in an insert at the end of the article, along with their email addresses. It is up to the editor to decide whether or not these people will actually be included as authors.

Corresponding authors receive email notifications when a revision has been made to their papers, so that they can confirm their email address and make any necessary changes to it. They may also choose not to receive these emails.

A paper may have more than one author. In this case, each author names themselves as such in the author list. However, only one of them needs to be contacted if you have any questions about the paper.

How do you write an author email?

Send a note to the author to the attention of her publisher. The publisher's contact information may be found on the front of the author's book or on the publisher's website. Check out the author's website. An author's website generally includes a contact email address. If the author doesn't have a website, check with her publicist or literary agent.

Who is the corresponding author?

When working on a manuscript with many authors, the corresponding author is the person in charge of interacting with the journal you wish to publish in. This may be someone who is primarily focused on research, or it may be someone who is also involved in teaching or service work. In most cases, this will be the first author on the paper.

If there are multiple corresponding authors, then they will usually share responsibility for communicating with the editor about their portion of the project. They may also discuss issues related to the publication such as deadlines or other constraints under which the journal operates. Generally, only one of them will have full authority to make final decisions about the paper, but all of them can offer advice on important matters.

As the name suggests, the corresponding author is responsible for sending out copies of the paper when it has been accepted by the journal. They may also be required to include themselves when thanking others who have contributed to the study. Not all authors have this role within their projects. For example, a senior researcher might have primary responsibility for designing the study, but other people might also have input into how it is carried out. They might help recruit participants, for example, or analyze data once it has been collected.

How do you write about authors and affiliations?

All affiliations should be indicated with a lower-case superscript letter directly after the author's name and before the relevant address. Provide the entire postal address of each affiliate, including the country name, as well as the e-mail address of each author, if available.

Does the corresponding author matter?

Corresponding author: someone who has not only made important contributions to the work but also has the capacity to see it through the publishing process smoothly and effectively. For example, an author could be an employee of the company that developed a product described in an article or they could be an independent contractor who was paid to develop the product. The corresponding author is usually the person named first on the byline of an article.

In addition to being responsible for the direction of their project, corresponding authors often have other responsibilities, such as editing and formatting text and figures, developing web sites, and communicating with readers via e-mail or social media. While any member of the research team can be given this role, it is not uncommon for the lead researcher to play it out of consideration for his or her busy schedule.

Sometimes more than one person is considered for this role. For example, two researchers might have equal responsibility for a project had they worked together previously or another person may have been assigned primary responsibility based on interest or expertise. In these cases, it is clear from reading the paper who is being identified as the corresponding author. Often there is no single person who can be identified as corresponding author because more than one member of the research team may have made significant contributions.

Do you cite the editor if there is no author?

If there is no author or editor listed for a book, begin the citation with the title, followed by the year of publication in round brackets. If an author is also the publisher, use the word "author" instead of the publisher's name. This is especially common among corporate or collective authors. For example, a book by IBM employees would be cited as IBM [et al.] 1983.
