Comprehensive inclusion in Abstracting & Indexing services

We understand the importance of getting your journal into both broad-interest and subject-specific, abstracting and indexing services in order to drive usage and build citations.

We work closely with all the key indexing organizations, including MEDLINE and Thomson Reuters (ISI), to ensure that journals are quickly covered.

For existing journals that transfer to BioMed Central, existing abstracting and indexing continues uninterrupted. For new journals that launch with BioMed Central and fall into the scope of PubMed Central inclusion in PubMed Central and coverage by PubMed typically commences a few months after launch.

Increase your journal's impact

Global visibility of your journal's content is vital in driving submissions from top authors as well as keeping usage and citations high. Society publishing partners who now work with BioMed Central have seen the global impact of their journals dramatically increase as a result of partnering with us.
