The first step is to submit your document so BioscienceCentral can provide you with an obligation-free quote. BioscienceCentral will email you the quote in the form of an online invoice allowing you to quickly and easily make payment if you are satisfied with the quote price. BioscienceCentral requires payment before commencing work on your document. The invoice will contain a due date for payment (approximately 1 week). If payment is not made by the due date, BioscienceCentral will erase your document from our files assuming you have decided not to use our services after receiving your quote.

British or American English spelling
BioscienceCentral uses standard scientific English. You will be asked to choose between British (UK) English spelling and American (US) English spelling. Regardless of whether you choose British or American English, the differences are small and on a broad international stage both are considered correct. Examples of small spelling differences include analyse, haemoglobin & tumour (British English) compared to analyze, hemoglobin & tumor (American English). If you are planning to publish in a scientific journal you can email the journal office to ask if the journal uses British or American English spelling. Some journals allow both.
