Short summary
The manuscript provides insights into the calculation of new particle formation rates. Generally, formation rates are measured at a diameter which can be substantially larger than the critical size of the newly formed particles. In order to transform the formation rate to a smaller size, a correction needs to be applied. We present a new method to apply this correction which takes into account the effect of self-coagulation.
