From Acceptance to Publication
First, congratulations! Now you need to meet the journal's official style requirements. You can find them at the Oxford University Press web site for The Review of Financial Studies. Once a paper has been accepted you still have to go through a few steps before it enters the publication queue.
- Format the paper in accordance with the official style guidelines.
- Next, send a PDF or word version of your paper to the journal's Assistant Editor. If your paper's source file is tex, please send a PDF version. If your paper's source file is word, please send the word version; this will make it easier for you to make changes during copy editing. The paper will then go to one of the journal's copy editors, who will check your paper for both the quality of its English grammar and the writing. You will then get back a marked-up copy noting required changes. Your paper will not go into the publication queue until the copy editor approves it!
- Once your paper has been approved for entry to the publication queue, the final revised version of the paper goes to Oxford University Press for publication. You can now go on to your next project!
Authors are not allowed to post postprint versions of their papers to institutional repositories at any time after publication.
