Name Changes on Scholarly Publications

Name Changes on Scholarly Publications

Fern

An increasing number of academic publishers have introduced policies making it easier for scholars to change their name on journal publications.  For some transgender, married and divorced researchers, as well as others, these new policies are a welcome change to what has sometimes been a difficult process.  The resources below provide links to the policies of several major publishers with guidance on how to request name changes.  If you would like assistance changing your name and other identifying information such as pronouns, photographs, and email addresses in previous journal publications, please reach out to RSP or contact the publisher directly.
