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
Announcing the launch of In Review
BMC Oral Health, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:
- Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
- Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
- Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received
2018 was an exciting year for BMC Oral Health, in which we published a wide range of interesting articles. Read the Editor's Pick 2018 blog to find a few of the papers worth revisiting from BMC Oral Health.
