Promoting your publication

Individual articles are widely promoted by our marketing and communications teams in a variety of ways. This could be through email updates, table of contents, email alerts, postings on the BioMed Central homepage, social media, blogs and/or press releases. These may result in higher levels of views and downloads for each article.

BioMed Central journals are also promoted at many major scientific conferences, to bring your work to the attention of professionals in your field.

In addition, all research published is automatically deposited in major bibliographic databases including PubMed and over 40 other abstracting and indexing databases. All of our journals are also indexed within SpringerLink, the world's most comprehensive online collection of scientific, technological and medical journals, books and reference works.

We would encourage you to promote your article via your own email lists, social media, Listservs, distribution at conferences and any other innovative techniques you wish to adopt.
