Terms and conditions

The following points are similar to that of our author agreement contract. If you are unable to agree to these conditions, it is unlikely we will be able to consider your manuscript for publication.

  • he or she is entitled to enter into a publishing agreement;
  • the manuscript is the original work of the Author(s) and the Author(s) is/are the sole author(s) of the manuscript;
  • the manuscript has not, and no substantial part of the manuscript has been previously published or made available for public viewing;
  • the manuscript does not breach any law or regulation, infringe any person’s Intellectual Property Rights or other legal rights;
  • the manuscript does not contain anything which is libellous, obscene, indecent, blasphemous, in breach of confidence or the right to a private life, in contempt of court, in contravention of racial hatred, religious hatred, official secrets or data protection legislation;
  • the manuscript is not and has never been the subject of any threatened or actual legal proceedings or other complaint.

Your manuscript may be similar to another manuscript submitted to us, or one in which we are already considering. You agree not to hold us liable for any similarity to your manuscript in other manuscripts we publish.

How long before I hear back?

This depends how many manuscripts are received during the submission window. We will post a timescale on the website within a week of the window closing.
