Queries – How do you get in touch?

We accept general queries via email or telephone at bapoconnect@bapo.com or 0141 561 7217.

If you are unsure if your submission is appropriate for the magazine, please email (as above) a brief outline or a finished piece to the Secretariat for clarification by the Editorial Committee.


Format – What do we need it to be?

Articles should be supplied as Word documents, though PDF’s can be used, any images or graphs/diagrams embedded within documents should also be supplied as JPG files (see image guidelines below).

Articles over 1 full page in length should ideally be supplied with images and, where possible, subheadings. All articles MUST contain a headline and where appropriate, an author name and title.

Images embedded within Word documents and PDF’s may not be suitable for print. It is possible to extract images from these files but they are often too small, so where possible the original image should be supplied as a separate high resolution JPG. Generally, if the JPG file is over 1mb it should be useable. While every effort will be made to include any images sent to us we cannot guarantee inclusion unless the below minimum specification is followed.

We have supplied a downloadable version of these guidelines to help you in submitting your article for inclusion within BAPOmag.

Acceptance or Rejection – How will we let you know?

Press releases submitted on behalf of a company will not be notified of receipt and/or rejection, unless requested. Notification of safe receipt of submissions from individuals will always be provided, with acceptance notification available upon request. BAPO will endeavour to confirm rejection with authors on an individual basis should this occur.

Deadlines – When do we need you to submit?

We accept submissions throughout the year and generally articles are published in the next issue. However on occasion and for submissions which fall out-with the current issue deadline they may be assigned to subsequent issues. If you would like your piece to be considered for a specific issue, it must be received by the appropriate article submission deadline.

NB: Article submission deadlines are final.
