Editorial and Publishing Policy Resource
Submitting forms on behalf of an author

A Managing Editor must submit an electronic licence for publication form on behalf of an author if one of the following circumstances apply: (1) the author has submitted a signed 'paper copy' of the form; (2) the author is deceased (no form is required, but a Managing Editor must submit a form to enable publication).

With effect from 25 February 2011, Managing Editors are no longer required to send paper copies of Licence for Publication forms to the Central Executive Team.
