First proofs in PDF format only will be sent to the author who will be expected to return them to the Editor within three days. Authors should note that no substantive alterations or additions can be made to first proofs, and should, therefore, thoroughly check their final submission for accuracy.
Each author will receive a PDF file of his or her published article.
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.
