I have submitted an article to the International Journal of Surgery, and it has gone into production. Just as I was signing the licensing agreement, it caught my eye that the name I had put in as the main author only contained my surname and my last name. It did not contain the middle name that is present on my national ID card, as well as my University ID.
E.g, The name I put in the manuscript: Wan Teller
The name on my National ID: Wan James Teller
It is a thorough mistake on my part, and I should've paid better attention.
I have no clue what to do now. The deadline to sign the agreement is today. What do I do?
A, Send an email to the producer to change my name in the manuscript before signing the licensing agreement.
B, Detail in the email about the mistake and ask the producer to change the name after signing the license? (Note: the license also contains my non-ID name e.g Wan Teller)
C, It's not necessary to add the middle name, it's fine if the name on the manuscript doesn't match my ID name.
Will be tremendously helpful if someone can guide me on this, and quickly.
