BioMed Central

BioMed Central (BMC) is a UK-based for-profit scientific publisher specializing in open access publication. BMC publishes over 180 scientific journals, and describes itself as the first and largest open access science publisher. BMC sister companies publish the Chemistry Central and PhysMath Central journals. The Chairman is Vitek Tracz and the Publisher is Matt Cockerill.

Most titles are open access, including its flagship journals Journal of Biology, Molecular Cancer Malaria Journal, the innovative Journal of Negative Results in BioMedicine and the BMC journal series including the leading titles BMC Biology and BMC Medicine. Others are open access for the research articles portion only, such as Genome Biology, Arthritis Research & Therapy, Breast Cancer Research, andCritical Care. Some review titles, such as Current Opinion in Drug Discovery & Development are entirely subscription based. Open access content is released under the Creative Commons "Attribution" license which grants permission to reuse publications and produce derivative work.

In October 2008, it was announced that BMC, Chemistry Central, and PhysMath Central, had been acquired by Springer Science+Business Media. Previously, since its creation, the company was part of Science Navigation Group, chaired by Vitek Tracz, which also owns The Scientist (a popular science magazine—the daily news section is free access; the remainder is by subscription), Faculty of 1000 (a subscription-only current awareness service highlighting recent biological research), Global DataPoint, People's Archive and, in the past, two other companies which had previously been acquired by Springer, Images.MD (a medical image database) and Current Medicine.

In November 2008, BMC became an official supporting organisation of HIFA2015 (Healthcare Information For All by 2015).
