|Comments on workflows||The author is identified by e-mail. CUP uses Rightslink. The author selects the institution to which he/she belongs. He/she is asked to publish OA or not. CUP reports are monthly, with DOIs and dates of acceptance and publication of the articles. There is no acknowledgment note for OA payment. Retroactive OA publishing also possible.|
|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS||OA publishing is slowly growing with this publisher.
Our institution does not publish so many articles in CUP journals.
It was unrealistic to think that we could convert the entire subscription cost into the cost to publish.
