Benefits of publishing with BMC

High visibility

BMC Proceedings‘s open access policy allows maximum visibility of articles published in the journal as they are available to a wide, global audience.

Speed of publication

BMC Proceedings offers a fast publication schedule whilst maintaining rigorous peer review; all articles must be submitted online, and peer review is managed fully electronically (articles are distributed in PDF form, which is automatically generated from the submitted files). Articles will be published with their final citation after acceptance, in both fully browsable web form, and as a formatted PDF.


Online publication in BMC Proceedings gives you the opportunity to publish large datasets, large numbers of color illustrations and moving pictures, to display data in a form that can be read directly by other software packages so as to allow readers to manipulate the data for themselves, and to create all relevant links (for example, to PubMed, to sequence and other databases, and to other articles).


We are committed to the highest standards of peer review.


We’re proud of the impact and influence BMC Proceedings has – from citations to social media shares; from advancing discovery within individual disciplines to affecting public discourse and policy making.

Promotion and press coverage

Articles published in BMC Proceedings are included in article alerts and regular email updates. Some may be highlighted on BMC Proceedings’s pages and on the BMC homepage.

In addition, articles published in BMC Proceedings may be promoted by press releases to the general or scientific press. These activities increase the exposure and number of accesses for articles published in BMC Proceedings. A list of articles recently press-released by journals published by BMC is available here.


As an author of an article published in BMC Proceedings you retain the copyright of your article and you are free to reproduce and disseminate your work (for further details, see the BMC license agreement).
