"Additional editorial work" is defined as additional work we have to do because additional work is required which exceeds the standard work during production, e.g. because the author made a mistake.
For example, if an article is already copyedited and proofread, and the author suddenly realizes he/she needs to make significant corrections at that stage, we will have to make these changes in the galleys, which is very timeconsuming and expensive.
Similarly, if the copyediting is completed (which is the final chance for the author to make substantial changes), and the author suddenly has extensive changes during proofreading, or needs to re-order the references etc (all of which should have been done during copyediting), then we may charge for the additional time.
We charge $190/hour.
- What are the steps during copyediting?
- What should the author do when proofreading the final galleys?
- What if my proofreading corrections are rejected?
- We published a paper in JMIR and have a correction. What is the process of publishing a corrigendum?
