|The production stage|
After the paper has been accepted and on the request of the Editor-in-Chief, you should send your paper files to the publisher. You need to prepare:
You will receive by e-mail your access codes, which allow you to send these files to the publisher by uploading them at the production online system SAGA
Once you are connected, you should follow the instructions given.
Tables made available in electronic form at the CDS should be prepared according to the conventions indicated above and detailed at http://cdsweb.u-strasbg.fr/submit/; they should be sent to the CDS upon acceptance of the paper, preferably using the submission form proposed on the CDS web site.
Alternatively the tabular material can be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by ftp to cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr.
The electronic versions of the tables are systematically checked for their consistency at the CDS, and the author may have to communicate with the CDS about missing descriptions or detected inconsistencies.
A&A now gives online access to unedited preprint versions of accepted papers several weeks ahead of publication, on authors' consent. This service is free of charge for authors.
For all papers, except Letters, page proofs will be sent to the authors by e-mail (PDF file). Please note that corrections should be restricted to typographical errors; fees for extensive additional changes will be charged to the author. Where absolutely essential, the addition of a "Note added in proof" will be considered and, if accepted, will appear at the end of the paper, following the reference list.
The corresponding authors will receive the PDF file of their article at no charge as soon as it is published.
Paper offprints are available at the prices listed in the table, provided the order is received at the same time as the corrected proofs. The offprint order form must be filled out and returned with the corrected proofs.
