Upon receipt of accepted manuscripts at Oxford Journals authors will be invited to complete an online licence to publish form.

You agree to notify OUP immediately if your details change. If your article is accepted for publication OUP will contact you using the email address you have used in the registration process. Please note that OUP does not retain copies of rejected articles.
