Open Access Publishing Choices: Read and Publish Submission

Information about Open Access publishing, Read and publish agreements, the Open Access Publication Scheme, and Author Accepted Manuscripts.

Publishing using a Read and Publish Agreement

So you have now decided that you can submit to a Read and Publish journal. Further information on the publishing process is listed below.

 

Step 1 : Submit to your chosen Read & Publish journal

Each journal has different publishing stipulations and submissions processes. Use these collated publisher lists of information for authors to help you.
 

Step 2: Submit your Authors Accepted Manuscript to Research Elements

Did you know you are also required to submit your Authors Accepted Manuscript to Research Elements so that it also appears in aCQUIRe as well as the journal.

An author accepted manuscript (AAM's) is the final author-created version of the manuscript, which includes any changes made after peer-review and has been accepted for publication by the journal, but before the publisher's final copyediting, typesetting, and formatting.​

 

Why deposit your AAM?
  • Increased research impact: having your Author Accepted Manuscripts in aCQUIRe will increase the chances others will read and cite your publications.
  • Track and measure the impact of your research: Make it easy to keep track of your AAM citation metrics and research impact via aCQUIRe.
  • An enhanced online presence: access to your Author Accepted Manuscripts in aCQUIRe will make it easy for researchers, students, journalists and funding bodies to find you and your publications.

Further information can be found in the Author Accepted Manuscripts Guide so that it also appears in aCQUIRe as well as the journal.
