CrossMark Policy

CrossMark is a multi-publisher initiative from CrossRef. It provides a standard way for readers to locate the authoritative version of a document. We recognize the importance of the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record to researchers and librarians. The CrossMark indicator informs the reader of the current status of a document and provides additional information about its publication record at the click of a button.

BioMed Research Publishers want to make sure everyone can read your research safe in the knowledge that they are reading the latest, approved version of the article. That’s why we’ve added the CrossMark logo to the published version of record for all articles published on our journal platform.

Retraction: The text of the article is retracted. The HTML pages are replaced by a single page with citation details and an explanation. The PDF pages remain with a watermark on every page to notify it is retracted.
