Submitting an Article

All submissions should be made online at the BJD ScholarOne Manuscripts site (formerly known as Manuscript Central). New users should first create an account. Once a user is logged onto the site, submissions should be made via the Author Centre.

Submissions must be accompanied by a completed Author Consent Form. Completed forms must be uploaded to ScholarOne Manuscripts at the same time as manuscript submission using the file designation ‘Supplementary file not for review’.


For Reviewers

The BJD and Wiley believe that peer review is the foundation for safeguarding the quality and integrity of scientific and scholarly research. We want to do everything we can to support reviewers (also sometimes known as “referees”) and to recognize their contribution.
