    medRxiv transfers

    BMC Medicine is happy to consider manuscripts that have been, or will be, posted on a preprint server. Authors are able to submit their manuscripts directly from medRxiv, without having to re-upload files.

    Portable peer review

    To reduce time spent on serial submissions and iterative reviewing, BMC Medicine offers to consider manuscripts on the basis of reviews received at other journals. We also support transfers of reviews obtained at BMC Medicine to other journals, including those outside of BMC and Springer Nature. Learn more from our portable reviews page.

    COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

    Registered reports

    BMC Medicine is accepting Registered Reports. Find out more about this innovative format in our Submission Guidelines.
