4. If my article is published, how will it be cited?


Articles in BMC Proceedings should be cited in the same way as articles in a traditional journal supplement. However, because articles in this journal are not printed, they do not have page numbers. Instead, they have a unique article number.

The following citation:

BMC Proc 2005, 6(Suppl 2):S3

refers to article S3 from Volume 6 Supplement 2 of the journal.

BMC Proceedings publishes supplements only and has no other content.

Each volume corresponds to a calendar year, and supplement numbers are allocated at the time of publication.
