please help me, and any advice would be greatly appreciated here.
I have published a paper with my advisor in a journal, which is one ACS publications. Recently I just published another paper on RSC journals.
Problem is for the most recent accepted journal paper, I used a figure from my previous publication. I mean, I didn't directly copy and paste the figure. The figure was revised, but I'd say they are still 90% similar. Because I thought that figure is mine, so I didn't get copyright permission from ACS first. But I cited the figure, referencing this figure is from my previous paper.
But these two figures are not the key part. They belong to "Model and method" part, which are used to illustrate the Model.
So I wonder that is there any way that I can make this mistake up? Like writing a correction or corrigendum? Please help, I just started my research career, and I don't want my career to be destroyed because of this.
