BMC Series Focus Issues

With Stem Cell Awareness day on the 13th October this year we have compiled an article collection from across different BMC Series journals covering aspects of basic stem cell biology; in vitro differentiation studies; stem-cell based therapy studies for various conditions in animal models; technical advancements and ethical issues. 

September: Patient and public involvement in research

In recognition of World Patient Safety Awareness day on 17th September, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in research.  We have collated free-to-read content from across our journals - showcasing patient perspectives, research into the study of PPI, and engaging public partners as co-authors in research.

Aims and scope

BMC Microbiology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all microorganisms - bacteria, archaea, algae and fungi, viruses, unicellular parasites and helminths. It considers studies on all aspects of the biology and biochemistry of microorganisms including but not limited to cell biology, genomics, signalling, the interaction of the microbes with the environment and host, mechanistic and functional insights into infection and disease, and biotechnological application in science and industry.

Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science.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.
