SIAM Name Change Policy
SIAM Publications respects that authors may seek to change their names for reasons such as marriage, divorce, alignment with gender identity, or religious conversion. This policy outlines how SIAM will work with SIAM authors who request a change to their name on their published record.
Authors who submit a name change will not be asked to specify the reason, and legal proof of the name change is not required. However, SIAM may request information to reasonably establish the identity of the requester.
After the request, SIAM will work with the author to determine what material is to be changed and whether to include a notice referring to the previous name. This notice is not required but may be included by the author’s choice. Any co-authors would not be informed of the change, unless requested by the author.
SIAM will make the relevant changes to online versions, webpages and related digital material, such as tables of contents and search results on its website. Citing works published by SIAM may also be corrected with the consent of the corresponding author of those works. Printed publications cannot be changed unless they are reprinted later.
SIAM cannot guarantee that name changes will be implemented in non-SIAM sites such as indexes and databases that refer to these publications. However, SIAM will include name change updates on its data feeds to third parties wherever possible.
