Announcing the launch of In Review

BMC Nursing, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received

Did your research give you data you couldn't find a home for?

Perhaps the outcome was unexpected? Or maybe you haven't had a chance to analyse it? Or it just didn't make it into the final paper?

Interesting data often gets overlooked. By publishing it as a data note in BMC Research Notes it can be found in PubMed, SCImago, Scopus and other indexing services.

Find out which formats we accept and how easy it is to free your data.
