Comprehensive author guidelines, manuscript templates and instructional videos can be found on the following pages:
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
Tables and figures are all cited and included within the text.
Authors who publish with this journal agree to the following terms. If a submission is rejected or withdrawn prior to publication, all rights return to the author(s):
Submitting to the journal implicitly confirms that all named authors and rights holders have agreed to the above terms of publication. It is the submitting author's responsibility to ensure all authors and relevant institutional bodies have given their agreement at the point of submission.
Note: some institutions require authors to seek written approval in relation to the terms of publication. Should this be required, authors can request a separate licence agreement document from the editorial team (e.g. authors who are Crown employees).
If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to pay a minimal Article Publication Charge (APC) to cover publications costs. This fee can normally be sourced from your funder or employer, and we recommend approaching them about this at the time of submission.
The APC is £450. This fee covers all publication costs (editorial processes; web hosting; indexing; marketing; archiving; DOI registration etc.) and ensures that all of the content is fully open access. This approach maximises the potential readership of publications and allows the journal to be run in a sustainable way.
Tax will be added to all fees charged, when applicable (includes VAT/Sales tax or any other applicable taxes).
A 30% APC discount is offered to any reviewer who has completed a review for the journal within the 12 months prior to submission. We simply ask that the review is completed and received on time (including any agreed extensions) and of reasonable detail. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, then please mention your review (ideally article title and date) in your cover letter when submitting to the journal.
We recognise that not all authors have access to funding, and we do not want fees to prevent the publication of worthy work. As such, exceptional cases should be presented to the Journal Manager pre-submission to justify an APC waiver. The editor and peer reviewers of the journal will not know what amount you have paid, and this will in no way influence whether your article is published or not. A small part of any paid APCs goes towards fee waivers so all who publish with us support our broader community, however we have limited numbers and therefore limited ability to offer this widely, therefore this is typically reserved to those with no capacity for funding.
