Please keep in mind that these articles only describe examples of Best Wound Practice and are not Treatment Recommendations. BWP’s requirements and expectations pertaining to those submissions are set forth below.

Each article should be composed of the following sections:

  • History

  • Diagnosis
  • Differential diagnosis
  • Workup required
  • Plan

  • References


Authors must submit “before,” “during,” and “after” treatment photographs for submissions to be considered for publication.  You can add photographs in each section as appropriate. Photographs should be high resolution.  As set forth in our Terms and Conditions, BWP requires authors to have all necessary releases and authorization pertaining to any photographs submitted for publication through BWP. 


BWP reserves the right to edit, revise, or otherwise alter any submissions as BWP deems fit before publication, provided that the author(s) of any altered submission shall be notified before such submission is published.


In order to be considered for publication, a manuscript may have no more than three authors.  

The senior author is responsible for handling any disputes that may arise over authorship or content of the submitted article.
