Please follow the steps to change the manuscript to a co-author:
- Go to the article summary page (e.g., User Home >> Author >> Active tab >> Article >> Summary tab. Sample URL: http://jmir.org/author/submission/Manuscript_Number)
- In the "GENERAL INFORMATION" section, beside the submitter name, there is a link called 'change to another user'
- Click on the link and make one of the co-author as submitting user for further editing the manuscript and communication with the editorial office.
If a co-author does not have an account with JMIR and an ORCID, please let him/her know to create an account at JMIR and authenticate the ORCID upon login.
- Update the ORCID of the co-author on the metadata of the associated article
Note: Only a co-author that has an account with JMIR and an ORCID can be a new submitting author. To hand over the paper to a co-author for further editing and communication with the editorial office, the submitting author first needs to enter the ORCID of the co-author in the metadata form and make sure he has a user account (ask him/her to add their ORCID to their user profile).
If you have trouble, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and ask JMIR staff to change the submitting author to one of the coauthors, but make sure this user has an account and quote his/her username.
