Subject: Request to Add Author Name to Paper

Dear [Editor’s Name],

I am writing to request that an additional author’s name be added to our recently published paper titled [insert paper title]. Unfortunately, due to an oversight, we realized that the name of one of our co-authors was not included in the final publication.

The author who was omitted from the publication is [insert omitted author’s name]. [He/She] contributed significantly to the research, and [his/her] work was integral to the success of the project. We sincerely apologize for this oversight and would like to rectify the situation as soon as possible.

We kindly request that you add [insert omitted author’s name] as a co-author to the paper. We have already received [his/her] approval to be included in the publication. We understand that this may require a formal correction notice or erratum to be published, and we are happy to provide any information or assistance necessary to facilitate this process.

Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused, and we appreciate your assistance in rectifying the situation.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.


[Your Name]
