Submission process

Before beginning the submission process, be sure that you have read our instructions for authors for general article information and our submission instructions for submission requirements. In brief, please sign in and then enter in the required information as prompted. All papers must have an abstract, full manuscript, references, and, if applicable, tables, figures and photos. Authors can save their work in progress, proof and submit revisions, download and review proofs, check on the status of their article, update personal information, and review their past submission records. Decisions are sent to authors via email. If you encounter any problems during the submission process, please contact staff at
If you have a question about BAP interest in a specific topic, the fastest way to receive feedback is to submit the paper for evaluation. Due to the large number of manuscripts we receive on a weekly basis, Editorial and Internal staff cannot review and comment on appropriateness of articles not formally submitted.
