The BMC-series journals

The BMC series is a group of open access, peer reviewed journals that span all areas of biology and medicine. There are over 60 subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities, offering an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work. We are innovative in our approach to peer review and publication, promoting transparency, and working with our authors, editors and reviewers to make scientific knowledge widely available.

The BMC series also includes:

  • BMC Biology and BMC Medicine, which are highly selective journals, publishing articles of special importance and broad interest.
  • BMC Research Notes, a broad scope journal publishing scientifically sound research across all fields of biology and medicine. The journal provides a home for short publications, case series, and incremental updates to previous work with the intention of reducing the loss suffered by the research community when such results remain unpublished.
  • BMC Proceedings, which publishes proceedings of conferences, including both peer-reviewed full-length articles and collections of meeting abstracts across all areas of biology and medicine.
