Instructions for authors
See 'About this journal' for descriptions of different article types and information about policies and the refereeing process.
Forum articles are normally by invitation only. As these include a collection of personal views by invited experts, Forum articles are generally not peer-reviewed. Unsolicited articles are rarely considered, but if you wish to enquire further about the suitability of your article, you can email the Editorial office of BMC Biology at firstname.lastname@example.org.
