Have you just had an article accepted for publication? Congratulations! BUT…you need to do one more thing before you celebrate.

You need to ensure that you’ve told us here in the Library so that we can add your work to the CRIS and make it available in the University repository CERES as soon as we can, subject to any embargoes the publishers have set.

What we need you to do:

As soon as you get your acceptance email, please forward it a long with a copy of your AAM (author-accepted manuscript*) to accepted@cranfield.ac.uk.

Our library team will then do the rest for you.

Why do you need to do it straight away?

We have a three month deadline from the point of acceptance to deposit articles into the repository to meet the REF open access compliance policy, so we need your help to get things moving along. The quicker your work is out there, the quicker your work may get read, cited, shared and appreciated.

Want to know more about Open Access?

Sign up to our research support webinar on ‘Making your work Open Access’. Join us online on Wednesday 22 May.
Book your place now.



*What is an AAM?
It’s the post-refereed final draft of your article without any formatting from the publisher. We’re happy to have it in PDF or Microsoft Word format – but please no highlighting or watermarks as it takes us a long time to get rid of these to create a clean copy!
