BVS publishes original short papers on every field of variable star research, as well as special papers and notes: minima/maxima times of variables, short notes on observational results, and reports on newly discovered variables.
Anyone may submit a manuscript to the IBVS to be considered for publication without restrictions based on nationality, qualification and affiliation. The papers are then reviewed by the editors and an external referee who will decide on the publication of the paper based solely on the scientific contents. For detailed guidelines on manuscript types, file types and multimedia, data policy, language requirements, and fees, please visit the Author Guideline pages for standalone papers, times of minima/maxima papers, and reports.
You can find an illustrated guideline about the submission process within OJS here: Submission guidelines.
