Chapter:

Author(s):

Annette Flanagin

Changes made in authorship (ie, order, addition, and deletion of authors) should be discussed and approved by all authors. Any such changes made after a manuscript has been submitted should be explained to the journal. The BMJ’s policy for alterations in authorship of papers under consideration is a useful guide for other journals: Any change in authors and/or contributors after initial submission must be approved by all authors. This applies to additions, deletions, change of order to the authors, or contributions being attributed differently. Any alterations must be explained to the editor. The editor may contact any of the authors
