Celebrating 10 years at BMC!

In 2012, European Journal of Medical Research joined the portfolio of BMC journals, converting to the open access publishing model.

Since then, European Journal of Medical Research has published translational, preclinical and clinical research across all medical disciplines, committing to enable clinicians and researchers to learn about developments and innovations within these disciplines and across the boundaries between disciplines. Both Editors and staff of European Journal of Medical Research are excited to see what the next 10 years will bring.

To mark this occasion, we are looking back at the journal’s milestone achievements and highlighting some of the best content from the past 10 years.
