Acceptance of articles
Articles are considered by referees who may recommend changes. If articles are suitable they will, after revision, be accepted subject to emendation by editorial staff. While changes in the author's meaning are not made, the editor reserves the right to edit the article in the way they think will best communicate its message. Authors see proofs prior to publication, at which time they may object to amendments which they feel have inadvertently changed their meaning.
When proofs are submitted to authors, they are issued with a date for return. If not returned by this date, it cannot be guaranteed that the author's corrections will be made, so it is advisable that authors supply an address where they can be reached at all times, eg ideally an email address, and not a school postal address if post is not forwarded during the holidays.
On acceptance of an article for publication you will be sent a Letter of Agreement which details the various copyright matters which need to be agreed. Once in place, this agreement will cover all future contributions made to Education in Chemistry, or any other RSC publication.
This letter must be returned to us, signed, before we can publish the article.
