(Redirected to BMC journals article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The BMC-series of journals are a collection of 64 online research journals published by BioMed Central. Like all BioMed Central journals, they have a policy of open access to the research articles they publish. Between them, they cover all major subject areas within biology and medicine. Two of the journals, BMC Biology and BMC Medicine, have a broad scope, and aim to publish particularly significant research. A third journal, BMC Research Notes, publishes research from all areas of biology and medicine without making impact or interest criteria for publication, while BMC Proceedings publishes conference proceedings. The other 60 journals specialise on a particular subject area.

Impact factor

Many of the BMC journals are still new in the league, thus an impact factor is not calculated for them, officially. Nevertheless, estimates are available for these new journals, as well as those which are not covered by Thomson Scientific (ISI). For the 24 journals with official 2008 impact factors, it ranges from 1.68 (BMC Health Services Research) to 4.73 (BMC Biology), with a mean of 2.95.[1] Several of the subject-specific BMC journals are among the top quarter of journals in their field with regard to their impact factors, including BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Evolutionary Biology, and BMC Molecular Biology.[2]
