The Gong - Solent University
This month's Gong - a wake-up call to late-paying clients - goes to Solent University, who finally paid an LFB member in mid-September - five months after an end-of-April teaching session. This is a slight improvement on the nearly six months it took the university to pay last year
Always challenge "payment on publication" contracts if you are able, and ask what happens if publication is postponed - or endlessly postponed, as in this case.
