Policy on Making Changes to Articles after Posting
For journals that appear both in print and electronically, articles are posted individually after proof is returned from authors and before appearing in an issue. To preserve the integrity of electronically published articles, once an article is individually posted but not yet in an issue, changes cannot be made in place in the paper. However, an "Added after posting" section may be added to the paper right before the References when there is a critical error in the content of the paper. The "Added after posting" section gives the author an opportunity to correct this type of critical error before the article is put into an issue for printing and before it is then reposted with the issue. The "Added after posting" section remains a permanent part of the paper. Author-related information, such as affiliation, current address, and email address, is not kept up to date after a paper is initially posted.
Once the article is assigned to an issue, even if the issue has not yet been posted to the AMS website, corrections may be made to the paper by submitting a traditional errata article to the Editor. The errata article will appear in a future print issue and will link back and forth on the web to the original article online.
