Guidelines For Authors

Manuscripts should be submitted online by one of the authors of the manuscript. Only electronic Word (.doc, .docx) files can be submitted and there is no page limit. Submissions by anyone other than one of the authors will not be accepted. The submitting author takes responsibility for the manuscript during submission and peer review. For technical help contact
Terms of submission
Manuscripts must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere and are only being considered by this journal. The submitting author is responsible for ensuring that the article’s publication has been approved by all the other co-authors. It is also the submitting author’s responsibility to ensure that the article has all necessary institutional approvals. Only an acknowledgment from the editorial office officially establishes the date of receipt. Further correspondence and proofs will be sent to the author(s) before publication, unless otherwise indicated. All inquiries concerning the publication of accepted manuscripts should be addressed to
Peer review
All submitted articles are subject to assessment and peer review to ensure editorial appropriateness and technical correctness. In order for an article to be accepted for publication, the assigned Editor will first consider if the manuscript meets minimum editorial standards and fits within the scope of the journal. If an article is within scope, then the Editor will ideally solicit at least two external peer reviewers (whose identities will remain anonymous to the authors) to assess the article before confirming a decision to accept. Decisions to reject are at the discretion of the Editor.
Article Processing Charges
Article Processing Charges (APCs) allow us to make articles immediately available online (in PDF format) to anyone to read and reuse upon publication with proper formatting, page numbers and DOI number. Articles that are accepted for publication by our editors following rigorous peer review incur a publishing fee charged to authors or institutions as given below:


Article Type Price
Short Communication 300 €
Mini-Review 350 €
Review 400 €
Original Research 450 €
Discounts and waivers

The following discounts will be given if one of the authors on the article falls into one of these groups:

SJBSR Editorial Board members: 10% discount.

SJBSR reviewers: 20% discount on one article submitted within the ensuing 12 months.

Discounts cannot be combined to cover the fee for a single article. If authors on an article are eligible for various individual discounts, the largest discount is applied.

SJBSR offered also support to those authors unable to pay APC to ensure that financial barriers do not prevent quality research benefiting from Open Access publication. Elements that will determine waiver eligibility are the absence of formal funding for the work and the affiliation country of the corresponding author. Waiver is checked on case-by-case and it cannot exceed 30% of the original APC in all cases. For APC support requests, please contact us at
