Journal production varies due to specific journal needs, but as a general overview, upon acceptance of your manuscript, you will first need to sign and submit a Contributor Agreement. Upon completion, a production editor will contact you to guide you through proofing and publication. For more information, please see our page On Acceptance and Publication on the Sage Journal Author Gateway.
