Wiley Announces New Author Name Change Policy
From a Wiley Announcement:
We are proud to announce that Wiley has updated its author name change policy to support the anonymity of authors who wish to change their name on already-published research. We are removing two standard and historical processes when an author submits a name change. We will no longer publish a correction notice to the updated paper when there is a name change, and we will no longer notify co-authors of their colleague’s name change. We will update and republish the paper, and redeliver the updated metadata to indexing services. We also will not require that authors provide proof or documentation of their name change. The policy change is effective immediately for all of our 1,700 research journals.
