Article Based Publishing Current model of publishing: • Articles are published in the issue as a batch, all at once • Articles wait an average of 15 weeks in articles-in-press list while final • Article flow is completely dependent on the issue flow • Article flow is based on print principles
New model introduced: Article Based Publishing • Publishing an article to an ‘issue in progress’ as soon as it is final, not having to wait for the entire issue to appear. • As an article is finalised, it receives a page range and is published in an Issue in Progress. • Final citation data on an article by article basis, decoupled from the issue bound model
Author choice: Open Access option available across Elsevier’s journals Link to open access information. Submission remains the same for all articles, but once an article has been accepted it will be possible to complete and submit an order form to ensure your paper becomes open access.
