In response to feedback from the research community, ACTA is now making articles available online after the acceptance. 

As a free service, making the accepted manuscript available has a number of benefits for our authors, including;

  • Earlier opportunity for research to be read and cited
  • Authors can promote their work as soon as it is accepted by their peers - maintaining the momentum of the publication process
  • Improved opportunities for funding approval as researchers can list their work earlier.

This version of the manuscript will not be language-edited or typeset and will be provided as a flat PDF.

We will continue to work with authors on the production of their article, and the final version of record will replace the accepted manuscript version once this has been completed.
