BMC Series Focus Issues
In celebration of World Environment Day on the 5th June, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Water and Sanitation. We have collated open-access content from across our journals to highlight research into clean water, investigating links between water and health and our overall relationship with water.
With Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on ‘Understanding Mental Health’. We have brought together content to highlight research into understanding and improving mental health.
