COVID-19 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.

BMC Series Focus Issue

August: Health Disparities

New Content Item


With World Humanitarian Day falling on 19th August, the BMC Series decided to focus on health disparities in August’s focus issue. Browse our biology, chemistry and medical titles for insight into health disparities, including racial health disparities, socioeconomic health disparities and regional disparities

Announcing the launch of In Review

BMC Immunology, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received 

Featured article: Simulation Modeling for Immunologists

In this article, authors present a freely available software package for the R programming language called Dynamical Systems Approach to Immune Response Modeling (DSAIRM). This is aimed at researchers with little or no coding experience to aid in their understanding of literature involving simulation modeling and to employ in their own research.
