Preparing Your Article Files for Publication

Congratulations on your article’s acceptance into the Medical Physics Journal.

Your manuscript and associated files are now being evaluated to ensure they are formatted in a manner which will allow our production team to move forward. The Journal Manager will soon contact you via email, either [1] asking you to re-submit some files as necessary, or [2] confirming that your current files are ready to move forward to production.

Once your manuscript has been received by Wiley Production Services, you will receive an email with your assigned Wiley ID number (which is different from you manuscript number). When your page proofs are ready for your review, you will receive another email from Wiley Production Services. If your manuscript includes a URL, you must verify that the URL is accessible at the time that you review the page proofs. Please direct any questions pertaining to the production process to the contact information supplied in that e-mail. Be sure to include the Wiley Production Number on all correspondence.

During the production process, authors may access information about the status of their accepted manuscript and sign the necessary copyright license agreements by registering with the Wiley Author Services website at: authorservices.wiley.com

Your article cannot be published until the publisher has received the appropriate signed license agreement. Within the next 10-14 days of being notified that the manuscript is accepted with no revisions, the corresponding author will receive an email from Wiley's Author Services system which will ask them to log in and sign the appropriate license.

ATTENTION: Authors of NIH-funded papers

In compliance with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy, the AAPM has authorized the American Institute of Physics (Wiley) to deposit your Medical Physics article in Pub Med Central.

In 1-3 weeks after your article has been published online, it will be automatically deposited in PUBMET, along with any associated metadata. Wiley will provide you with the PMC ID number via email, once it has been assigned. Please note that the full text of the article will not become available on PMC until after a one-year embargo. No action is required on your part, but we do ask that you please inform your co-authors of the procedure. Please check that you have properly credited the NIH in the Acknowledgment section of your paper. For information pertaining to the NIH policy, please visit: www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/about/pubinfo.html

You are also invited to submit a short video abstract describing the scientific attributes of your paper. Video abstracts are hosted on the Medical Physics Video Abstracts page: aapm.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/hub/journal/24734209/about/AAPM_VideoAbstracts

A video abstract is a great opportunity to publicize your paper. You can create your own abstract video (up to 3 min long) or use Wiley Editing Services which offers professional video, design, and writing services to create shareable video abstracts, infographics, conference posters, lay summaries, and research news stories for your research at www.wileyauthors.com/eeo/promotion. Use of the Wiley Editing Services involves a non-trivial video production fee.

Thank you for your contribution to the Journal. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at medphys@wiley.com.
