Do not automatically assign the corresponding author role to the author who happens to submit, but make this a required "conscious choice"

Corresponding Author(CA) role is gaining critical importance during peer review, licence signing, and for determining eligibility for transitional / transformative Open Access agreements

Therefore, the choice of CA must be a conscious and careful one.

However, currently, at submission to S1M, the submitting author defaults to receiving the CA role, and this remains so when further authors are added to the author list, making it possible to submit without giving consideration to who is the appropriate CA.

Our request:
When more than one author is entered, remove the automatic assignment of the CA role and enforce a manual assignment of CA role.
