Publication process after acceptance

Funding open access

Multiple funding routes are available for Gold Open Access articles. 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 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.

Online publication and FirstView

BMGS uses the FirstView system to publish articles online ahead of the print edition. Once published online no further revisions may be made. Articles published online may be cited by their DOI prior to their assignment to an issue. Articles are not necessarily published in print in the same order in which they appear online, but will be assigned to an appropriate issue by the Editor.


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.

Please see here for further information.
