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.


First proofs may be read and corrected by authors via the online system within the specified period. 

Authors should correct printers’ errors but not introduce new or different material at this stage. Authors would be strongly advised to read the proof thoroughly as any errors missed may appear in the final published paper. Once the article is available online, no further changes can be made. 

Please note that any supplementary materials will not be copy-edited, whether on the ReCALL homepage hosted by CUP or on IRIS, for example (see the author template).

Final-version PDFs

Contributors will be provided with the PDF file of the published paper.
