1,000th article published in BMC Genomics


We are delighted to announce the publication of the 1,000th article in BMC Genomics!

"Early activation of quorum sensing in Pseudomonas aeruginosa reveals the architecture of a complex regulon" by Dr Martin Schuster at the University of Oregon and Prof E. Peter Greenberg at the University of Washington was published in August and is already Highly Accessed. We are sure that it will go on to be highly cited, helping BMC Genomics to maintain its healthy Impact Factor.

We’d like to thank Dr Schuster and Prof Greenberg for choosing to publish with BMC Genomics, and we would also like to thank:

  • Image from Ghai et al. BMC Bioinformatics 2004 5:198The thousands of other authors who have submitted to the journal over the years;
  • Our hard-working editorial board;
  • Our readers, who have viewed our articles on the BMC Genomics website, and probably many more times on PubMed Central, our mirrors and in institutional repositories – the 10 Most Viewed articles have been viewed a total of nearly 90,000 times;
  • And especially all the reviewers who have volunteered their time and expertise to help ensure that open access publishing continues to be a success.

Research published in BMC Genomics has truly made an impact. Thirty articles from the journal have been selected by the Faculty of 1000 and, according to Scopus, articles published in BMC Genomics have been cited nearly 4,000 times in total. A recent article by researchers at the British Columbia Cancer Research Centre in Canada about gene expression changes in ex-smokers received press coverage around the world, including by the BBC.

If you haven’t already, why not target your next research article to BMC Genomics?

Congratulations BMC Genomics Team. I have published 2 papers in this journal, one each in 2006 and 2007 and these are my most rigorously reviewed papers ever. Both the papers were reviewed by atleast 4 reviewers. I am proud of these publications; its an immensely satisfying achievement. One of the papers that dealt with arrival and survival of Helicobacter pylori in India was tagged very next day of publication by the ‘Down to Earth’ magazine; they carried a news article in their July 31, 2007 issue based on our paper.
