Announcement

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.

What makes for sound science?

The inclusive threshold policy for publication in BMC journals including BMC Plant Biology means that editorial decisions are largely based on the soundness of the research presented rather than the novelty or potential impact of the work. Here our Section Editors discuss what is required to ensure that research meets the requirement of scientific soundness.

Standards of reporting

BMC Medical 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.
