Aims and scope
BMC Surgery is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on surgical research, training, and practice.
The journal welcomes manuscripts in the following broad areas of research:
- Trauma surgery and general orthopedic surgery.
- Peripheral vascular surgery and thoracic surgery.
- Visceral surgery and general surgery.
- Head and neck surgery.
Please note that BMC Surgery no longer considers submissions of case reports. We would like to encourage you to submit your manuscripts to the Journal of Medical Case Reports instead.
