Role of the corresponding author in GPCL journals

Prepublication responsibilities

Communication hub

The corresponding (submitting) author serves as the primary point of contact with GPCL‘s journals and manages communication among co-authors.

Author list management

Before submission, the corresponding author ensures the comprehensive inclusion of all authors in the list, secures unanimous agreement on the order of authorship, and confirms awareness of the paper’s submission among all contributors.

Proof handling

After acceptance, the proof is sent to the corresponding author, who interacts with GPCL‘s journals on behalf of all co-authors. It is crucial to rectify errors in the proof before publication, as post-publication corrections may not be guaranteed.

Accuracy assurance

The corresponding author bears the responsibility for the accuracy of all content in the proof, including ensuring the correct spelling of co-authors’ names and validating the currency of addresses and affiliations.

Responsibilities after publication

Point of contact

GPCL‘s journals designate the corresponding author as the primary contact for queries about the published paper.

Communication facilitator

The corresponding author takes on the responsibility of informing all co-authors of emerging matters post-publication and ensures their prompt resolution.

Inclusive role

This role is not limited to the senior author or the contributor of materials; instead, the corresponding author’s duty is to promptly address inquiries on behalf of all co-authors.

Publication information

The name and email address of the corresponding author (or potentially two in large collaborations) are published in the paper, reinforcing their central role as the point of contact for external queries.
