want to mark the corresponding author in my paper. How?
Corresponding author is usually the author who is responsible for the whole correspondence during the paper submission, handling the revisions and re-submission of revised manuscripts up to the acceptance of the manuscripts. Some academics often get confused between the first author and the corresponding author. A first author is the person who did most of the work and took all initiatives including writing the first/second draft of the paper. In some cases, the corresponding and the first author are the same but that is not a necessary condition. In academic writing, an asterisk is used to give credit to corresponding authors. In some cases, asterisks (*) also denote the co-author or authors. These co-authors should be listed below the title in a clear format. For example: first name, middle initial (if applicable), and last name. In addition, the names and addresses of the universities or institutes where the work was done should be listed below the co-author names.
