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to previous work with the intention of reducing the loss suffered by the research community when such results remain unpublished.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.

Journal partners

Bio Sharing
BMC Research Notes is delighted to be partnered with BioSharing to develop a comprehensive catalogue of domain-specific data standards across biology and medicine, which will include a number of the exemplary data notes published in our series on Data standardization, sharing and publication.
