Once your article has been accepted, but before it can proceed into production, we need a signed licence to publish form. Further information about this may be found in the publishing agreement page.
To coordinate and provide additional publicity surrounding a press release, including Twitter and Facebook, for your publication please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible after acceptance.
If you have a specific question about BJPsych Advances, please contact the editorial office, at BJPAdvances@rcpsych.ac.uk.
BJPsych Advances uses the FirstView system to publish articles online ahead of the print edition. FirstView publication is typically 2-3 weeks after receipt of corrected author proofs. For more details please see our FAQs.
Articles published online under the FirstView model are considered published, and have a DOI which can be used for citation. No further revisions can be made after FirstView publication of an article. Articles will later be assigned to an appropriate issue by the journal's Editor. Articles may appear in a different order in issues to the order they were published under FirstView.
Changes cannot be made to articles once published either online in FirstView or as part of an issue. Any changes must be made via the standard process of issuing a correction notice. Please contact the Editorial Office and Content Manager for the journal if any error has been identified. The final decision on whether a correction notice should be published will be taken by the Publisher in consultation with the Editorial Team. For more information please refer to our FAQs.
If a manuscript has only been published as an Accepted Manuscript, you may still make corrections to typographical errors in your proofs in the usual way.
Once your article has been published, authors will receive a code which will provide perpetual access in both HTML and PDF formats.
