When a journal or conference accepts your paper for publication, please upload it. Don't wait for it to be published.
Do not send the final published manuscripts or proof copies. The accepted manuscript is the final author-created version, incorporating peer-review changes but before any publisher work such as copy-editing or typesetting.
You can upload your accepted manuscript by simply going to www.openaccess.cam.ac.uk and clicking 'Upload manuscript'. You will then be prompted to login to Symplectic Elements. Click 'Accepted for Publication?' and follow the instructions.
If your publication acknowledges funding, please make sure to indicate this by creating/adding a manual record for the publication on Elements and filling in at least the mandatory fields and the acceptance date.
Once you have successfully deposited your manuscript, we’ll check out the requirements and options and guide you through how to make it compliant with the REF Open Access policy and any funders Open Access policies, as well as check your eligibility for our Open Access block grants. In many cases we can simply deposit your manuscript directly into Apollo without paying an Open Access fee - many journals support this free, 'Green' open access route.
