Call for papers: Complexity in Mental Health Research: Theory, Method, and Empirical Contributions

We are now welcoming submissions for a new article collection on complexity in mental health research. We invite research and front-matter submissions that embrace complexity and chart a path forward for investigating mental disorders as complex systems.

Research: Relationship between multimorbidity, demographic factors and mortality

Using data from the UK Biobank, researchers show that multimorbidity is associated with higher all-cause, cancer-and vascular mortality. Those who have multimorbidity and are middle-aged, particularly men, are at greater relative risk of all-cause mortality.

Research: Predicting chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 1-year mortality

Via the use of a model, a study on electronic healthcare records aimed to predict 1-year mortality in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), performing better than existing tools in predicting mortality, by only requiring routinely collected data at primary care level.

Forum: Applying blockchain technology to healthcare

Tim Mackey and colleagues discuss they ways in which blockchain has the potential to transform healthcare, assessing whether this new technology can live up to its hype. This Forum article considers the healthcare needs and the diverse perspectives of consumers, patients, providers and regulators asking how blockchain technology can be ‘fit for purpose’.

Aims and scope

BMC Medicine is the flagship medical journal of the BMC series. An open access, open peer-reviewed general medical journal, BMC Medicine publishes outstanding and influential research in all areas of clinical practice, translational medicine, medical and health advances, public health, global health, policy, and general topics of interest to the biomedical and sociomedical professional communities. We also publish stimulating debates and reviews as well as unique forum articles and concise tutorials.
