fixing error after acceptance?

Postby Sakmeht on Sun Nov 04, 2012 2:42 pm

Hi everyone,

I recently submitted my first article and it was accepted and only now I've realized that I made a statement that should have been backed up with a source. I'd love to just delete one sentence, but it sounds like I can't do that now that it's been accepted? Can I only edit while it's still under review? It's really grating on me that I read that paper over two dozen times and only now I'm seeing a glaring error. Will I just have to let it go and assume no one will purchase it?

Thoroughly irritated at myself,
Sarita

The only thing you can do is delete the article and resubmit. In the short summary, add a note to the editors to tell them what you've done. Once it has been accepted, you can delete that part of the short summary.

Is it possible to directly contact the editors and explain the situation? I believe they will appreciate such dedication and responsibility.

There is no way to contact the editors other than via a submission. You could contact support but I believe they would just tell you to do what I suggested. That is the way things work here.

Thank you, Jak,

I will do as you suggest. I want to cultivate a reputation for clean, exacting work here.
