Nonmember rates apply to manuscripts when the corresponding author is not a BPS member in good standing at the time the original version of the manuscript is submitted.
The member rate is for authors at universities and research institutes when the corresponding author is a BPS member in good standing on the date the original version of the manuscript is submitted.
The discounted member rate is for authors at colleges such as primarily undergraduate institutions (PUI), community colleges or other non-research institutes. The manuscript corresponding author must be a BPS member in good standing at the time the original version of the manuscript is submitted.
A limited budget for waivers is available each calendar year. Waivers will require a letter (at submission) testifying to the lack of funds for publication and are granted at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief.
