Author's quote

“In the last three years, we have been increasingly using BioMed Central journals to present our work. This choice is based on a number of factors, including a streamlined online submission process, rigorous peer-review, open access, and relatively short time from submission to publication. As our experiences while publishing in BioMed Central journals such as Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery have been excellent, and the benefits of open access to our research are obvious, I intend to continue publishing much of our work through BioMed Central.”
