Having looked at the process of publishing an issue from the point of view of the various editorial team members, we’ll now look at making changes to an issue after publication, something only the editor is authorized to do.
The steps we’ll see in this lesson touch on a number of larger issues in editing a scholarly journal. To learn more about the four functions of a scholarly journal (functions which need to be considered when deciding to change a published issue), you may want to consult the course “Becoming an Editor.” That course also covers ethical issues like plagiarism and duplicate publication that would lead the editor to make changes.
