Sports Medicine: BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation launches
With the prevalence of obesity rising on a worldwide scale and the introduction of public health policies aimed at increasing levels of exercise at a population level, the growth of sports science and medicine as a field of research is inevitable. BMC Sports Science, Medicine, and Rehabilitation brings sports medicine to the BMC series, with research encompassing a wide variety of disciplines. It seeks not only to improve levels of mental and …
As a dynamic open access biochemistry journal, BMC Biochemistry strives to keep abreast of the latest advances in the field. In recent years bionanotechnology and biosensors have emerged as a booming area of biochemistry research. A particular focus of the community has been the use of nanoparticles and nanostructures to build novel molecular systems and devices.
Several groups from around the world are now focusing primarily on research into bionanotechnology or biosensors and here at BMC Biochemistry we very much encourage submissions in this exciting and growing area of research. Submissions in this area would fit into the Protein and Enzyme section of the journal and, in order to better reflect the developments in the field, we …
BMC Ophthalmology is delighted to endorse the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group’s free online peer review course entitled Translating Critical Appraisal of a Manuscript into Meaningful Peer Review. The course has been developed as a resource for health professionals who are serving, or wish to serve as peer reviewers of biomedical literature.
Although the course and its content were designed with ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other vision practitioners in mind, it is applicable and useful to health professionals from all specialities and those who participate in peer review of biomedical literature generally.
Course organiser Kay Dickersin tells us “The Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group online course on meaningful peer review offers clear instruction on how to critique …
Liverpool – home of The Beatles, The Grand National and recent European Capital of Culture, was this year also home to the Royal College of Ophthalmologists’ Annual Congress. The meeting was a great success, hosting lots of excellent talks, poster presentations and rapid fire sessions that covered the whole spectrum of ophthalmological research, not to mention views of the world-famous Albert Dock.
Translational ophthalmology was a big focus of this year’s meeting. Many of the sessions featured talks on how lab results can be applied to ‘real world’ clinical situations. In addition, a full session dedicated to translational research was chaired by Andrew Lotery and Andrew Dick. Prof. Dick is an active member of BMC …
