Journal-specific Instructions to Authors
Author Resource Centre
Within Oxford University Press, the Journals Production department recognizes the importance of high-quality research being published as quickly and efficiently as possible. We therefore have a streamlined production process to ensure that papers can reach the academic community rapidly and with maximum impact. We also work to ensure authors have a good experience publishing with us, and benefit from the quality standards to which we are dedicated. We value our relationships with our authors, editors, societies, and subscribers and we are constantly looking to improve the way we work.
Oxford University Press
Oxford Journals is a division of Oxford University Press (OUP), which itself is a department of the University of Oxford. As a department of the University, OUP is not subject to merger or acquisition and can focus on its mission of being a ‘profit-for-purpose’ publisher. We are the largest and most successful University Press in the world, with offices in 30 countries. OUP is committed to providing authors with the latest advances in scholarly publishing and recently supported ORCID in setting up a global registry of author and researcher identifiers. Furthermore, as part of the on-going website redesign project, OUP is rolling out a system called Altmetrics which assesses the reach and impact of research using metrics such as shares, mentions in social media and blog posts.
Everything published by OUP relates directly to our mission; to support Oxford University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education and we look forward to seeing how Oxford Journals will continue to contribute to this mission in the future.
OUP is committed to maintaining the highest standards of publication ethics and to supporting ethical research practices. OUP is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) (http://publicationethics.org/) and adheres to the COPE Code of Conduct for Journal Publishers. We encourage journal editors to follow the COPE Code of Conduct for Journal Editors and to refer reviewers to the COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers as appropriate.
