Publication process after acceptance


On receipt of the production files you will be sent an email indicating completion of the acceptance process. Before Cambridge can publish a journal article (or any other journal content), we need a signed licence to publish agreement.

These forms can be found on the publishing agreement page. Send all pages of the signed form via email to the IAU at or upload onto the ScholarOne submission system.

Please note that an article cannot proceed to Cambridge Production without a completed agreement.

Publication Process

Once a paper has been accepted for publication, the source files have been uploaded and the publishing agreement signed, the manuscript will be sent to Cambridge University Press for typesetting, and will be assigned a digital object identifier (doi).

The symposia editor will review the manuscript proofs and at this stage may consult with the corresponding author at their discretion.

The PDF published online is the Version of Record and no further alterations/corrections to this document will be allowed.

For further information please refer to our central production guide and production FAQs.
