Publication process after acceptance


Once an article has been accepted, the process of copyediting, proofing, typesetting and publishing the article will begin. On acceptance, the editorial team will be in contact with the corresponding author to provide specific instructions about how to prepare the accepted manuscript for copyediting and typesetting.

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.


No paper offprints are provided, but the author(s) will be sent the pdf of the published article. Print offprints may be purchases at a small cost if ordered at proof stage.
