||Each institution can choose between automatic and controlled validation of publication requests.
In case of automatic validation (recommended by the publisher), RightLinks, which manages the process, approves it on the basis of the GRID.
In case of validation by the institution, an e-mail is sent to the person indicated as the validator for each submission. The publisher recommends a maximum of two days for validation, to avoid delays in publication.
