Call for content!

Following a call from the UK House of Commons Science and Technology Committee for evidence on reproducibility and research integrity, and the roles different institutions play in this, we partnered with the UK Reproducibility Network to provide a platform to share feedback on the topic with the wider scientific community. 
Our new collection welcomes opinion pieces by individuals, groups and organisations.

BMC Series Focus Issues

October: Focus on Stem Cells

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 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.

Editor's choice collection: qPCR - Applications and methodologies
