" BioMed Central unveils newly redesigned website - 02 Dec 2011

Open access publisher BioMed Central, UK, has announced the launch of its newly redesigned website (www.biomedcentral.com). BioMed Central, which currently publishes over 220 open access journals, has introduced a streamlined design and new look which makes the high-traffic website much more straightforward to navigate. The redesigned site also introduces a range of new and enhanced features.

Emphasising the company's commitment to meeting the evolving needs of authors and readers, the new site includes a greatly improved 'My BioMed Central' section offering users convenient access to the latest research in their subject areas together with status updates on manuscripts which they are submitting or reviewing. Other features include enhanced navigation for archives, supplements and special article collections; additional RSS feeds and embedded social linking technologies; and improved subject gateways, providing a central starting point to find research on particular scientific topics.

Sister website Chemistry Central will also benefit from the new look and significantly increased functionality.

In addition to the new appearance, the site is built using modern open-source java technologies, which provide a firm foundation for the enhancements and new services still in development."

"BMC Biology and Journal of Biology are joining forces as a single journal committed to the publication of high-quality commissioned content and research articles of exceptional
importance. The combined journal will operate under the name BMC Biology, reflecting the strong relationship with the subject-specific BMC-series journals, and will be edited by Miranda Robertson, who explains in an inaugural editorial how she sees the fusion combining the strengths of both journals, with continuation of the re-review opt-out experiment initiated by Journal of Biology."

BioData Mining -- New Open Access Journal by BioMed Central

|

"Open access publisher BioMed Central, US, has announced the launch of a new open access journal - BioData Mining. Dr Jesus Aguilar-Ruiz of the Pablo De Olavide University and Dr Jason H. Moore of the Dartmouth Medical School will serve as Editors-in-Chief of the journal. They will be supported by an expert Editorial Board.

BioData Mining publishes original articles on all aspects of data mining applied to high-dimensional biological and biomedical data, focusing on computational aspects of knowledge discovery from large-scale genetic, transcriptomic, genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data. As well as being open access, the journal also operates an open peer review process, which the editors hope will foster constructive reviews and therefore enrich the criticism.

All BioData Mining articles are archived in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine's full-text repository of life science literature, and also in repositories at the University of Potsdam in Germany, at INIST in France and in e-Depot, the National Library of the Netherlands' digital archive of all electronic publications. The journal is also participating in the British Library's e-journals pilot project, and plans to deposit copies of all articles with the British Library."
