Milestone for BMC Bioinformatics

The BioMed Central blog reports a milestone for BMC Bioinformatics:

BMC Bioinformatics reached an impressive milestone in May 2007, receiving 105 manuscript submissions - a record number for the journal. This is the first first time that monthly submissions for a single BioMed Central journal have reached triple digits, and demonstrates the continuing success and growth of BioMed Central's journals.

We are especially pleased to see BMC Bioinformatics maintaining and improving its position, as bioinformatics is now a very competitive field of publishing, and authors have many open access journals to choose from....

To see all the latest research from BioMed Central in bioinformatics and related fields, check out our Bioinformatics and Genomics Gateway.

PS:  Rising submissions help a journal improve its quality and impact, which in turn help it improve its submissions even further in a benign circle.  Congratulations to the whole Bioinformatics team.
