Publication process after acceptance

Open access discounts

If you are publishing Gold Open Access, you may be eligible for an APC waiver or discount. Please see this journal's open access options for details.


Once an article has been accepted, the process of copyediting, proofing, typesetting and publishing the article will begin. Authors will be asked to ensure all final files are submitted to ScholarOne before the article can be sent to Cambridge University Press for production.

Your point of contact with Cambridge University Press will be the content manager of the journal. For more information about how production works at Cambridge University Press, please visit this page, which covers basic information about how an article goes from accepted manuscript to fully published. There may be small differences between journals with this process. You can also check our Journal Production FAQs.

Proofs and PDF files

Corresponding authors will be asked by email to download proofs as PDF files. They will be asked to correct the proofs and send the corrections to the copy-editor, preferably by email, within 3 days of receipt. Upon publication, corresponding authors will be supplied with a PDF file of their contribution.

Corrections should be limited to typesetting or conversion errors of the text, tables and figures, and should not involve changes in the content of the manuscript.
