PLEASE NOTE: Due to the recent switch to DEAL please avoid selecting the BMC membership option in the drop down menu on the BMC payment options page when you submit. Please select the option “I agree to pay” instead. Upon acceptance the fee will be covered by DEAL and, thereby, the FAU publications fund.
