I have few publications in which my previous supervisor (X) is the corresponding author and I am the first/lead author. However, he passed away few months before.
Recently I got to know that a reader of one my paper had emailed to X for some explanations, but the reader did not get any response because X is no more.
The reader and me accidentally met in an academic conference, where he came to know that I am the lead author of that paper and cleared his doubts from me.
So I am wondering is it possible to change the corresponding author of those published papers? May I request to the editor in chief to change it?
