In order for a paper to be eligible for submission to the BFY Proceedings, the paper's first author must make a presentation related to the paper at the Conference on Laboratory Instruction Beyond the First Year of College (BFY). Work presented only at the main AAPT meeting is NOT eligible for submission to the BFY Proceedings.
A person is only allowed to be the first author on only one peer-reviewed paper.
Update your Contact Information
Every year you submit, you should check and update as necessary your profile on the AAPT Advanced Laboratories website so that interested parties can connect with you. It is also important for the editors to have the most recent contact information in case of questions or issues with your submission.
If you have recently legally changed your name, please inform the Editor so that the editor can be aware of any potential differences within the system.
First Author Responsibilities
The first author on the paper:
When a paper has several authors, the first author should be the one designated to receive and respond to correspondence from the Editor. This designation can be changed upon notification of the Editor. It is the responsibility of the first author to represent all those involved with the work reported.
By submitting the paper, the first author certifies the following:
Authors may not present data and other results obtained by others as if they were their own. Nor may authors incorporate without attribution text from another work (by themselves or others), even when summarizing past results or background material. If a direct quotation is appropriate, the quotation should be clearly indicated as such and the original source should be properly cited. Papers that have been found to be in violation of this policy will be rejected.
The next BFY Conference abstracts are expected to be due in Spring 2018, with conference paper manuscripts due in early summer.
