How can I add a comment to a DG publication?

On every product page you will find a number of tabs. The one on the very right is the one where you can read and add comments. In order to do so you have to be logged in. All users of the website are able to read all comments without being logged in. (If you want to add a note just for yourself, use the action icon "Add note" displaying in the upper part of the website.)

How soon will my comment show up on the website?

De Gruyter will check all published comments and posts within 24 business hours according to the Berlin business day schedule. Failure to observe the De Gruyter house-rules will lead to deletion of the published content and possibly to exclusion of the user in question from the De Gruyter Online community.

What do you mean by "nickname"?

In order to post a comment on a publication detail page you will have to fill in a nickname on the "Comments" tab for the purposes of anonimity towards other users. Only registered users are allowed to comment though, so if you are not logged in, the platform will prompt you for login or registration. The nickname is being stored with your account and is the default (but still editable) value the next time you leave a comment.
