About this blog

The On Medicine blog delivers insights and opinion on the high-quality and thought-provoking research published across BMC’s medical journals, including titles such as BMC Medicine and Genome Medicine.

We have over 75 open access medical journals covering everything from clinical practice, to experimental and translational research. They provide instant free access to high-quality, peer-reviewed research.

As well as writing about the research we publish, this blog is also a place to read discussions of medical ethics and practices, insights into journal developments, and commentary on news in the field. In addition, we shine the light on issues relating to transparency and reproducibility at all stages of medical research.

Most of our posts are written by staff, but you’ll also hear from our Editorial Board Members and a variety of guest bloggers.
