Announcing the launch of In Review

BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received 

Call for papers: Explainable AI

We want to inspire cross-domain experts interested in artificial intelligence and machine learning to stimulate research on explainable AI in medical informatics and decision making.

We are recruiting!

BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making is seeking a highly qualified individual to serve as the Section Editor for the Healthcare Information Systems section. The ideal candidate will be a well established biomedical informatics investigator with substantial peer-review experience. Diversity in all forms will be a driving factor when selecting an individual to serve in this capacity.
