Quick journal publication etiquette question:

If a private sector researcher is submitting a manuscript to an academic journal, and said researcher is concerned that the timescale of peer review might be longer than the timescale of employment (or even employer solvency) due to the current economic situation, is it considered unprofessional to use non-work contact information?

A friend of mine needs to know what contact info to put on his paper.

Since you can change this information at any stage, it's not particularly important if your details change between the time of submission and the time of publication. Probably best to give an e-mail address that will remain valid whatever, though...

Also, if the details change, one can declare one's self a consultant, and then home information would be the same as work information.

that is a good question ... I would simply put whatever affiliation it is now, they can change this at the last minute
