BioMed Central

BioMed Central is an STM (Science, Technology and Medicine) publisher which has pioneered the open access publishing model. All original research articles published by BioMed Central, in its portfolio of more than 200 journals, are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication. BioMed Central views open access to research as essential in order to ensure the rapid and efficient communication of research findings as well as being committed to maintaining high standards through full and stringent peer review.


All research articles published by BioMed Central are archived without delay in PubMed Central and several other international archives. BioMed Central also allows authors to immediately deposit the official, final version of their published article in any suitable digital repository. Several institutions and research funders have introduced official policies requesting or requiring their authors to deposit the articles they publish in a central archive. BioMed Central fully supports these deposition policies and is compliant with them. BioMed Central also operates Open Repository, a hosted digital repository solution for institutions.


BioMed Central is part of Springer Science+Business Media.
