Manuscripts that do not agree to the Instructions will be refused prior to peer review.
Submission of a manuscript to BJPS implies that the data have not been published previously and will not be submitted for publication elsewhere while the manuscript is under review.
Co-authors should be individuals who have contributed substantially to the content of the paper.

If the revised version is not received within the time specified from the date of notice, the manuscript process will be canceled. All revisions must be accompanied with a letter detailing the changes made to the original document and answering all the reviewer comments, on a point-by-point basis. All alterations must be identified in the revised manuscript.
Manuscripts must have their copyright assigned to the BJPS before submitting to the Journal.

Results and Discussion: Results must be presented clearly and concisely and in logical order. This section should provide results of all of experiments required to support the conclusions of the paper. When possible, use figures or tables to present data rather than text. Large datasets, including raw data, should be submitted as supplementary files; these are published online linked to the article. Discussion should interpret the results and assess their significance in relation to existing knowledge. Speculation not warranted by actual data should be avoided. The Discussion should spell out the major conclusions and interpretations of the work including some explanation of the significance of these conclusions.
