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.

Production

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.

If you have a specific question about Studies in Second Language Acquisition, please contact the editorial office, at ssla.journal@gmail.com.


Licence to publish

Once your article has been accepted, but before it can proceed into production, we need a signed licence to publish form. Further information about this may be found in the publishing agreement page.

FirstView

Studies in Second Language Acquisition uses the FirstView system to publish articles online ahead of issue assignment. For more details please see our FAQs.

Articles published online under the FirstView model are considered published, and have a DOI which can be used for citation. No further revisions can be made after FirstView publication of an article. Articles will later be assigned to an appropriate issue by the journal's Editor. Articles may appear in a different order in issues to the order they were published under FirstView.

Corrections

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. For more information please refer to our FAQs.

Access to your article

Once your article has been published, authors will receive a code which will provide perpetual access in both HTML and PDF formats.
