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.

BMC Oral Health is Recruiting new Associate Editors
The BMC Series Editorial site serves as a home for editorial board resources and as an online community, facilitating interaction and networking between the editorial board and the BMC series in-house team.
Get credit for your data!
Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.
BMC Series Focus Issues
Data are the cornerstones to transparency and reproducibility of research. At the BMC Series, we offer different article types to help you share your data. Explore some of our open access data publications in this focus issue and browse through the additional reading and resources to learn more about this topic.
In celebration of World Environment Day on the 5th June, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Water and Sanitation. We have collated open-access content from across our journals to highlight research into clean water, investigating links between water and health and our overall relationship with water.
