BMC Series Focus Issues

July: Open data and data sharing

Data are the cornerstones to transparency and reproducibility of research. At the BMC Series, we offer different article types to help you share your data. Explore some of our open access data publications in this focus issue and browse through the additional reading and resources to learn more about this topic. 

June: Water and Sanitation.

In celebration of World Environment Day on the 5th June,  the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Water and Sanitation.  We have  collated open-access content from across our journals to highlight research into clean water, investigating links between water and health and our overall relationship with water.

Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.

You can publish your data in BMC Genomic Data (genomic, transcriptomic and high-throughput genotype data) or in BMC Research Notes (data from across all natural and clinical sciences). 

More information about our unique article type can be found on the BMC Genomic Data and BMC Research Notes journal websites. 

Resources for authors

Standards of reporting

BMC Genomics advocates complete and transparent reporting of research. The BMC minimum standards of reporting checklist is intended as a tool for authors to transparently describe their research and ensure reproducibility. We encourage our authors to adhere to these standards when preparing their manuscript.

Research Data Support for authors

Research Data Support is an optional Springer Nature service available to researchers who have datasets they want to make easier to cite, share and find. Learn more about this service and the many benefits of making your data publicly available. 

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Portable peer review

The editors of BMC Genomics support initiatives that expedite the peer review process and are happy to consider manuscripts that have been reviewed in Peerage of Science. Please indicate in your cover letter if this applies to your manuscript.
