Changes to authorship after submission/peer-review (but before publication):
Important: If one or more authors are added after the first round of peer-review that were previously not listed as authors, then we will have to follow the COPE process outlined in this flowchart, meaning that a letter signed by all original authors is required, stating the reason for the change, and stating that all authors agree on the addition and the new authorship order.
Please upload this letter as supplementary file.
