We are dedicated to supporting our authors by providing global visibility, innovative formats, widespread promotion, and opportunities for impact on future research, practice, and policy.
Our publishing process: Our responsive team of professional editors provide excellent service by ensuring rigorous manuscript processing and communication to authors throughout the entire publishing experience. Upon submission, our in-house editors work with carefully selected reviewers and where necessary our Editorial Board of leading international experts to ensure a high quality and constructive editorial and peer review process.
High visibility and global reach: All content such as high-impact research, reviews and opinion is freely available open access immediately upon publication. Papers that are published in BMC Global and Public Health are featured on our website with article-level metrics. Selected articles are promoted via press coverage, marketing campaigns, and social media.
Flexible formatting: To facilitate the submission process, we are flexible with regard to the format, style and length of initial submissions. Journal-specific formatting is required only once manuscripts reach the later stages of the publication process.
Portable peer review: To reduce time spent on serial submissions and iterative reviewing, BMC Global and Public Health offers to consider manuscripts on the basis of reviews received at other journals. We also support transfers of reviews obtained at BMC Global and Public Health to other journals, including those outside of BMC and Springer Nature. Learn more from our peer review policy page.
Scoop protection: BMC Global and Public Health offers "scoop protection", meaning that if other researchers publish similar findings after submission, or post them on a preprint server, this will not be a reason for rejection. However, the submission can still be rejected on other grounds.
