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 Issues
With the 28th of February marking World Rare Diseases day, the BMC Series this month looks at highlighting research on the Rare diseases that together affect around 10% of the population. Read the full collection of articles here.
With the 30th January marking World Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) day, the BMC Series this month looks at highlighting research on the NTDs which threaten more than 1.7 billion people living in the poorest and most marginalized communities worldwide.
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.Read More
