Publication process after acceptance


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 see our information on publishing an accepted paper, which explains 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.

After acceptance

First proofs: First proofs will be emailed to the corresponding author after acceptance. Contributors should ensure that they are available to check their first proofs and answer any queries that have arisen during copyediting and typesetting.

Supplying corrections: Authors should mark up the corrections to their article by electronically annotating the PDF. Full details on where to send corrections will be given in the first proof email. Please note that it is the author’s responsibility to check the proof carefully; errors not found may appear in the published article. Authors will receive a link to the PDF of their final article, along with a shareable link.

Continuous publication

Personality Neuroscience benefits from a continuous publication format. Completed articles are assigned an e-number and are published in an open volume, closed at the end of each year. Once an article has been published online, it is considered to be in its final format and no changes can be made.

Funding open access

Multiple funding routes are available for Gold Open Access articles. Please see this journal's open access options for details.
