As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
The Editors of BMC Developmental Biology, BMC Ecology and BMC Evolutionary Biology announce the launch of the cross-journal thematic series on eco-evo-devo, the effect of the environment of development and evolution. Please click the above link for further information and to submit to the collection.
Deadline for submissions is 30th August 2020.
