Journal of Biomedical Discovery and Collaboration

What is Journal of Biomedical Discovery and Collaboration? Journal of Biomedical Discovery and Collaboration is an Open Access, peer-reviewed online journal that will encompass all aspects of scientific information management and studies of scientific practice, with a particular emphasis on biomedical laboratory investigations. Currently, many scattered disciplines study aspects of scientific practice, including informatics, computer science, sociology, cognitive psychology, scientometrics, rhetoric, and history and philosophy of science. The journal will connect these disparate perspectives with each other, and with contemporary scientific practice.





The software platform operating this journal will be upgraded the last week of March 2017 (March 27 to March 31). Due to the complexity of the upgrade, this journal will be in Read-Only mode until the upgrade is complete.   Read-only mode means that while you can read the journal, the journal will not be accepting submissions, sending out article for review, accepting completed reviews, or publishing new articles.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
