Supporting equity in academic publishing

New Content ItemAt BMC, we strive to be inclusive and provide equal opportunities to authors based in low- and middle-income countries who might face challenges in publishing their work. Check out BMC Public Health's guidance on submitting your research to the BMC Series journals.
