Biotechnology at BMC: A new family of companion journals

At BMC, we are very excited to introduce a new family of companion journals in Biotechnology.

This new family builds on, and better connects, existing leader BMC journals in the field, and expands the portfolio with new high-quality gold open access journals, aiming to support the same community of scientists.

New Content Item

Aims and benefits:

  • A stronger and better connected community of key scientists supporting the journals
  • A wider choice available to researchers through a range of specialist journals
  • Enhanced collaboration between editors, reviewers, and authors 
  • More opportunities for collaboration through cross-journal collections
  • Better support to authors in directing them to the editors with the most suitable expertise to handle their submission and finding a manuscript its best home 
  • A more complete offering of journals with broader or more specialist scope, catering for a wider variety of research types.
