BMC Series Focus Issue
With World Animal Day falling on October 4th, the BMC series has decided to dedicate this month’s focus issue to animal models. Browse our titles for insight into recent research in the field, including growth regulation, lifespan variation, nephrotoxicity, cancer, lipid metabolism, autism, temperature-dependent development, drug resistance, inflammatory responses, disease resistance, sperm dynamics and antimicrobial residues in fish.
Aims and scope
BMC Research Notes is an open access journal publishing peer-reviewed contributions from across all scientific and clinical disciplines, including intriguing initial observations, updates to previous work and established methods, valid negative results, and scientific data sets and descriptions. We are committed to making it easier to find, cite and share your short reports by providing an inclusive forum for valuable data and research observations.
Time for a celebration!
In 2017, BMC Research Notes introduced a new article type to allow authors to share their data and receive much deserved credit - the Data Note.
We have recently published our 100th Data Note, highlighting out commitment to open data and the community's interest in this topic!
Please join me in congratulating the authors, daSilva-deAbreu and co workers, as well as all contributors to BMC Research Notes, including Editorial Board Members, authors, reviewers, the Editorial Office, the Research Data team, our Assistant Editor and the wider BMC series, on this amazing achievement!Read More

The 2020 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Harvey J. Alter, Michael Houghton and Charles M. Rice for their discovery of Hepatitis C virus. In celebration of what they started and showcasing areas of research that have since emerged, we here present a collection of articles from the BMC Biology, BMC Medicine, Genome Medicine and the BMC Series Journals on biology, diagnosis and treatment and wider public health and medical outcomes of the Hepatitis C virus and its infection.
Data notes are a short article type for describing data, encouraging sharing, re-use and giving researchers credit for their work
