BMC Implements Registered Reports Format for Medical Journal

BMC Medicine is the first medical journal to accept BMC’s Registered Reports article format, which includes only the rationale and the proposed methodology behind a study in a peer-reviewed article. After peer review, the importance of the research questions and their implications for future research, policy, or practice, as well as the need for the study based on existing works are taken into account. The article undergoes a second round of peer review, and if it passes, it is guaranteed publication as a complete article.

“Registered Reports format aims at fostering innovation and addressing concerns about credibility and reproducibility in science. This model warrants publishing research with hypotheses established prior to data collection and avoids questionable research practices,” according to BMC. BMC Biology and BMC Ecology are also using Registered Reports.
