BMJ Open Science
Aims and Scope
BMJ Open Science is an open access, peer-reviewed journal publishing preclinical and basic research that is close to medicine. Our mission is to improve the transparency, integrity, and reproducibility of biomedical research closely aligned to medicine. The scope is broad and covers the whole spectrum of preclinical and translational biomedical research.
We consider all study types that describe or are relevant to preclinical research from study protocols through to original research articles, data descriptor articles and systematic reviews. Our editorial policies and partnership initiatives with community projects aim to help the methods, data and results that are published in BMJ Open Science be reproducible. Editors and reviewers will assess manuscripts against scientific and ethical criteria only and will not judge novelty or predict impact.
