BioMed Central has a subgroup on Linkedin especially for our authors and editors to share open access news and information and to start informed discussions around topical issues.
In addition, BMC Research Notes has a Linkedin subgroup exclusively for our Editorial Board. If you are a BMC Research Notes Editorial Board member please join the group and join the discussion with fellow Editors.
Aims & scope
BMC Research Notes is an open access 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to previous work with the intention of reducing the loss suffered by the research community when such results remain unpublished.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 Research Notes also encourages the publication of software tools, databases and data sets and a key objective of the journal is to ensure that associated data files will, wherever possible, be published in standard, reusable formats. We are currently working with researchers across the full spectrum of biomedical research to define appropriate recommendations for domain-specific data file standards.
