The new BMC Research Notes

We have re-affirmed the original vision of the journal with a focus on short research communications.

New article type - Data Note

We have launched data notes which aim to increase data visibility and support the reuse and sharing of valuable research data.

We are recruiting!

We are now recruiting Associate Editors for our Editorial Board on a range of different subject disciplines.

New Content Item

Broad scope

We have expanded our scope to include physical sciences, engineering, computer science and mathematics. 

Aims and scope

BMC Research Notes publishes scientifically valid research outputs that cannot be considered as full research or methodology articles. We support the research community across all scientific and clinical disciplines by providing an open access forum for sharing data and useful information; this includes, but is not limited to, updates to previous work, additions to established methods, short publications, null results, research proposals and data management plans.
