BMC Research Notes
Publisher: BioMed Central
BMC Research Notes is an open access journal publishing scientifically sound
research across all fields of biology and medicine, enabling authors to
publish updates to previous research, software tools and databases, data
sets, small-scale clinical studies, and reports of confirmatory or
'negative' results. Additionally the journal welcomes descriptions of
incremental improvements to methods that as well as short correspondence
items and hypotheses.
A key objective of BMC Research Notes is to ensure that associated data
files will, wherever possible, be published in standard, reusable formats
and are exposed to ensure that they are searchable and easily harvested for
reuse. We are working with researchers across the full spectrum of
biomedical research to define appropriate recommendations for
domain-specific data file standards, and we aim to provide detailed
'Additional data file' preparation guidelines, to complement our current
detailed figure preparation guidelines.
BMC Research Notes provides a home for short publications, case series,
incremental updates to previous work, results of individual experiments and
similar material that currently lacks a suitable outlet. The intention is to
reduce the loss suffered by the research community when such results remain
unpublished. Submissions are fully peer-reviewed, and will be handled by an
international board of academic Associate Editors spanning all biological
and medical disciplines.
Manuscript submission via online system.
Abstracts available online. Articles available in HTML and PDF format.
