The Journal publishes clinical reports, theoretical analyses, empirical investigations, and book reviews pertaining to the theory and practice of Bioenergetic Analysis. Articles will be published in English. Two reviewers will evaluate the article on the basis of a blind review (all information pertaining to the author’s identity will be omitted). The Editorial Board will also have a vote regarding the appropriateness of the article for inclusion in the journal. Manuscripts should not have been published previously or been submitted elsewhere concomitantly.

Bioenergetic Analysis will be published once a year. Articles should only be submitted during the summer (beginning the first of June through the first of September) of the preceding year. Authors will be sent a notification of receipt of their manuscript within two weeks and will be informed about the status of their manuscripts, as to qualified acceptance or rejection, within two months after submission.
