Can I still make corrections to my article after it has been published Online First?

The online publication represents the official publication of research results. It is not simply a prepublication service on the part of the publisher. As soon as an article is published online, it is citable and quotable. If changes are then made, confusion can easily arise, with authors citing different versions of the same publication.

The journal has therefore decided not to make systematic use of the technical possibilities that an online publication offers and not to simply replace a published document with an updated one. After online publication, further changes can only be made in the form of an Erratum, which will be hyper-linked to the article.

How can I order offprints?

For the majority of Babol Branch’s journals you will receive a free electronic offprint (PDF-format) for your article for your personal use. For some journals you will have the choice between this free eOffprint or a given number of free paper offprints (the options are based on the respective agreement with the editors or society partners).

How can I request permission to re-use material?

To use material printed in publications from Babol Branch, please contact us to get permission.

Can I share my electronic offprint with others?

Authors have the right to disseminate their article's eOffprint (as a printout or by email) to their co-authors and research colleagues (for personal use by such colleagues). It is not allowed to distribute the eOffprint via a webpage.

The eOffprint is for personal use only and shall not be selfarchived in electronic repositories. If you wish to self-archive your article, please use the accepted manuscript version for posting on your own website.

What exactly is Online First?

The Online First service lets users access peer reviewed articles well before print publication. These articles are searchable and citable by their DOI (Digital Object Identifier). With Online First publication the time it takes for critical discoveries to reach the research community is significantly reduced.
