Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer-review

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.

Did your research give you data you couldn't find a home for?

Perhaps the outcome was unexpected? Or maybe you haven't had a chance to analyse it? Or it just didn't make it into the final paper?

Interesting data often gets overlooked. By publishing it as a data note in BMC Research Notes it can be found in PubMed, SCImago, Scopus and other indexing services.

Find out which formats we accept and how easy it is to free your data.
