BMC Research Notes is an open access journal publishing scientifically sound research across all fields of biology and medicine. The journal provides a home for short publications, case series, and incremental updates to previous work with the intention of reducing the loss suffered by the research community when such results remain unpublished.
BMC Research Notes also encourages the publication of software tools, databases and data sets and a key objective of the journal is to ensure that associated data files will, wherever possible, be published in standard, reusable formats. We are currently working with researchers across the full spectrum of biomedical research to define appropriate recommendations for domain-specific data file standards.
Mandate for Access to underlying dataset: YES
DOIs issued: YES
Note from FOSTER Editor: FOSTER recommends Data Journals that mandate that data is deposited in long-term data repositories, and persitent idetifiers issued (e.g. DOI). Jefferey Beall, Librairan at University of Colorado, maintains a widely cited credibility list of Open Access publishers at http://scholarlyoa.com/ . We recommend you verify the credibility of any peer-review journal that you are unfamiliar with, before you submit your publications.
