6. Is BioMed Central a pre-print server?


BioMed Central is primarily a publisher of peer-reviewed original research articles. However, BioMed Central believes that there may be a role for rapid access to unrefereed material as part of the future of biological and medical publishing, although we are extremely sensitive to the concerns of many scientists that unrefereed research should not be intermingled or confused with research that has been peer reviewed.

With this in mind, we are experimenting with pre-print servers on some journals.

BioMed Central will participate fully in open archive initiatives designed to allow pre-print servers to co-operate.
