ISSN: 1741-7007 (Online)


BMC Biology is the flagship biology journal of the BMC series, publishing peer-reviewed research and methodology articles of special importance and broad interest in any area of biology, as well as commissioned reviews, opinion pieces, comment and Q&As on topics of special or topical interest.

Re-review opt-out - In response to widespread frustration with delays to publication through iterative reviewing, we give our authors a choice (see our Editorial: Q&A: Re-review opt-out and painless publishing).
