Submission of Manuscripts

Manuscripts sent to Boston BioEdit need to be completed by the authors and created with Microsoft Word® or Word Perfect®. The text content needs to be single sided, double spaced 12 point type using a standard font. This format allows us to edit the work efficiently and promptly and calculate our pricing (see below). It is not essential to send data figures with your manuscripts but we advise all of our clients to do so.

The fastest and most effective way of sending and receiving documents is electronically as an email attachment to: editor@bostonbioedit.com. Please submit email attachments either as Word documents or as PDF files. In addition, a submission form must be included with each manuscript. For email submission please complete the Word version of this form and include it as an additional attachment with your documents. A PDF version of this form is also available below.

Documents and submission forms may also be sent to us by
