BMC Genetics has re-launched as BMC Genomic Data

We are excited to announce that BMC Genetics re-launched as BMC Genomic Data on 1st January 2021. BMC Genomic Data will focuses on genetic and genomic datasets, and welcomes submissions of descriptions of data and manuscripts that analyse existing or new datasets, with an emphasis on reproducibility and reuse. Genetic research can now be submitted to BMC Genomics, which will now accept both genetics and genomics. For further information on what this title change means please see our FAQs page.

Focus Issue: Data Sharing

Research data are the foundations of reliable and reproducible science. In our Focus Issue, we highlight different ways authors were able to publish and share their data by choosing the BMC series


Aims and scope

BMC Genomic Data, previously known as BMC Genetics, is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that welcomes submissions that describe genomic and genetic research data, report new analyses of genomic data and introduce community databases. We promote open science through the sharing of data.

Resources for authors

Standards of reporting

BMC Genomic Data advocates complete and transparent reporting of research. The BMC minimum standards of reporting checklist is intended as a tool for authors to transparently describe their research and ensure reproducibility. We encourage our authors to adhere to these standards when preparing their manuscript.

Research Data Support for authors

Research Data Support is an optional Springer Nature service available to researchers who have datasets they want to make easier to cite, share and find. Learn more about this service and the many benefits of making your data publicly available.

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.
