What kind of changes can an author make to a manuscript that has been accepted by the journal?
A paper undergoes considerable changes from submission to publication. Changes have to be made at the review stage and sometimes even once the paper has been accepted, we feel the need to make certain changes. But what kind of changes can you make to your paper after acceptance? Is it only changes at the language level or at content level as well? Sometimes, a colleague or collaborator might have helped you considerably during the review stage and you might want to acknowledge them or add them as an author as an afterthought. Can you add a new co-author after your paper has been accepted?
