Changes in Paper Authorship
Authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscripts.  The submitter (corresponding author) is obligated to provide the definitive list of
authors at the time of the original submission.  Any addition, deletion, or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list can be made only before the manuscript has been accepted. 
Please Note: After the paper has been accepted, if the authorship information is modified without approval by the journal editor (author names and/or order of the author names), the paper will be automatically REJECTED.

Changes will be permitted only in exceptional circumstances. To request such a change, the journal editor must receive the following:
  1.  The reason for the change, which must be explained in pedantic detail, from the corresponding author.
  2.  Written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors affirming that they agree with the changes.  In the case of the addition or removal of authors, confirmation from the author(s) being added or removed is still required.
