Announcing the launch of In Review

BMC Family Practice, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received 

Featured Article: Will we have enough GPs in the future? Yes, if we make them competent and keep them happy!

The role of General Practitioner is a less popular choice of medical specialization throughout Europe. In a study recently published in BMC Family Practice, researchers explore and highlight the positive factors that support the satisfaction of active General Practitioners.

To learn more about this study, please read the blog written by the authors.
