Proofs and Reprints


The corresponding author of an accepted article will receive the PDF proof within 2-3 weeks' time and is asked to check this proof carefully (the publisher will execute a cursory check only). Please be sure to return your corrections as quickly as possible to ensure a timely publication date. Corrections other than typesetter's errors should be avoided, so please make sure when you submit your final revised paper to the editorial office that it is proofread and final. Costs arising from excessive corrections will be charged to the authors. Once the author’s corrections or approval to the proof are received, the article is updated and directly published in final form into the journal’s running volume. After final publication corrections will no longer be able to be made. If a significant error is discovered after publication, the only option is to publish a separate Erratum, the production of which must first be evaluated by the publisher (stemjournal@iospress.com).

Note: After acceptance, any additions or deletions to the list of authors MUST be approved by the Editor-in-Chief (contact stemjournal@iospress.com), and all authors on the manuscript must also sign off on the changes. While the Editor considers the request, publication of the manuscript will be suspended. The author will receive a final PDF of their published article by email.


An order form for reprints or additional journal copies will be provided to the corresponding author along with the pdf proof. If you wish to order reprints of an earlier published article, please contact the publisher for a quotation:
