In recognition of World Patient Safety Awareness day on 17th September, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in research. We have collated free-to-read content from across our journals - showcasing patient perspectives, research into the study of PPI, and engaging public partners as co-authors in research.
In celebration of World Breastfeeding week in the beginning of August, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Breastfeeding. We have collated open-access content from across our journals to highlight research into breastfeeding behaviors and care for lactating women, infant and child health, biology of breastfeeding, and more.
BMC Nephrology is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of kidney and associated disorders, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology.

Society Affiliation Information
The Renal Association is the professional body for nephrologists and renal scientists based in the UK, and is active in promoting and disseminating research that may ultimately improve outcomes for patients with kidney disease. The objectives of the Association are: to advance, collate and disseminate knowledge of renal structure and function; to seek means for the prevention and treatment of renal disorders; to deal with any matters concerning the welfare of patients with renal diseases and the organization of services for their relief. Members of The Renal Association will receive a discount on BMC Nephrology's article-processing charge when they provide a discount code (which members can obtain by contacting the society) during the submission process.
Get credit for your data!
Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.
You can publish your data in BMC Genomic Data(genomic, transcriptomic and high-throughput genotype data) or in BMC Research Notes(data from across all natural and clinical sciences).
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time. Thank you.
