Authors are strongly advised to familiarise themselves with the Open Access options available from their chosen publisher, and to contact the library ahead of submission with any queries.

Authors should also familiarise themselves with the guidance in the Code of Good Practice in Research available at:

This guide recommends that authors agree roles for each author.  If you have an agreed list of roles that are not included in a paper we can store these in Enlighten.  The roles must be chosen from the CRediT roles and they must be agreed by the authors

You may use this form or email us details of the roles.
