Let be any von Neumann algebra without central summands of type and a core-free projection with the central carrier . For any scalar , it is shown that every additive map on satisfies whenever if and only if (1) , , where is an additive derivation and is a central valued additive map vanishing on with ; (2) , is a derivation with for each .
