  • White papers, previously published articles, perspectives, opinions, advertorials, and press releases will be rejected 
  • Abstracts are important for data aggregators and facilitate exposure to articles published – be sure your paper has an abstract. Check the following links for more information: CONSORT or PRISMA

Waiver Policy

BHTY has a waiver policy for authors from lower-middle income countries as per the World Bank (click here for details). We give fair consideration to all submissions, and believe this should not be linked to the ability to pay. Where limited funding is available to authors, BHTY can provide a complete or partial waiver to authors on request, AFTER, an article is accepted. We review papers based strictly on MERIT. The quality and contribution it makes to the sector supersedes the APC. We believe this is paramount for fair and open exchange. 

Thank you,
