Getting your research noticed the easy way – use accepted@


Man using laptop and taking notes

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 along with a copy of your AAM to Our library team will then do the rest for you.

(An AAM is 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!)

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?

We have a great Open Access guide to the library website. And if you are confused by all the terminology, you can check out our Open Access glossary.

Please get in touch if you have any queries about Open Access. You can either speak with your Information Specialist for research or with our Open Access team.
