- Choose article type: “S.I. : Polish Biophysical Society Meeting 2022”
Articles of a wide variety can be submitted – research articles, methods articles, review articles and technical primers, which take a key biophysical technique and summarise its theoretical and practical basis and how it can be applied to answer biological questions.
- Upload your article files. These can be submitted as a single Word file with figures embedded, or as a Word file with figures uploaded separately (select file type “Images”), tables may also be submitted within the main text or as separate files. You may also upload a LaTeX document, or a PDF of a LaTeX submission with the source file submitted as a supplementary file. Please note however that a PDF alone (whether generated from Word, LaTeX or another system) cannot be processed further and source files will be required before your paper can be published. Supplementary Information files of, for example, supplemental figures are also welcome.
Matching guidance is provided on the file upload page.
Also see: submission guidelines but note that these are for guidance only and are a combination of journal-specific and generic publisher guidelines.

- You will not need to pay for submission or for figures, whether grayscale or colour. The only charges that should be required are any necessary Open Access charges. Concerning Open Access:
- If your institution and/or funder(s) do not require “Gold” full Open Access then you should self-archive your paper for non-subscription distribution in PubMed as well as in any institutional archives. You should deposit the final submitted and accepted PDF of the paper and will be asked by SpringerNature to transfer copyright which is their standard policy for self-archived papers.
- If your institution and/or funder does require “Gold” full Open Access, which for Springer journals is called “Open Choice” then the additional costs will need to be borne from the authors’ research expenses or covered from a specific fund including those that may be provided by research councils or institutions.
