Post-Publication Information – Journals
Making Changes to Articles After They Are Posted to the Web
For journals that appear both in print and electronic formats: Articles are posted individually soon after proofs are returned and before the articles appear in an issue. To preserve the integrity of electronically published articles, once your article is individually posted but not yet in an issue, changes cannot be made in the article.
Submitting an "Added After Posting" Section
You can add an "Added after Posting" section to your article right before the References if there is a critical error in the content. The "Added after Posting" section gives you an opportunity to correct this type of critical error before your article is put into an issue for printing and before it is then reposted with the issue.
The "Added after Posting" section remains a permanent part of the article. Author-related information, such as affiliation, current address, and email address, is not kept up-to-date after your article is initially posted.
Submitting a Traditional Errata Article
Once your article is assigned to an issue, even if the issue has not yet been posted to the AMS website, you can make corrections by submitting a traditional errata article to the Editor. The errata article will appear in a future print issue and will link back and forth on the Web to your original article online.
For most AMS journals, free downloadable and printable PDF versions of published articles will be available upon print publication.
Notification email will be sent as soon as your article is published with information about accessing the offprints site through your AMS Web account. If you have an existing Web account, a reminder of your Username will be provided to help you log in. If you do not have a Web account, your AMS customer code (AMSID) will be provided to use with your name and email to establish a Web account.
This electronic delivery system eliminates the delay from print publication to offprint delivery that previously resulted from printing, sorting, and mailing paper offprints and will provide you with permanent access to your article once it is published.
In addition to an electronic offprint, Memoirs of the AMS authors will receive five (5) complimentary copies of their Memoir.
