Call for papers for a COVID-19 publication series of GMS Medizinische Informatik, Biometrie und Epidemiologie

The COVID-19 pandemic threatens the life and health of people worldwide.

We in Medical Informatics, Medical Documentation, Biometry, Epidemiology, Medical Bioinformatics and Systems Biology must and can make our contribution to help solve and alleviate such problems.
For example, have you

Then we ask you to share your proposed solutions with your colleagues.

GMS MIBE is setting up a special publication series for the publication of such work. All types of articles are welcome However, we particularly encourage the publication of case reports, reviews and short articles.

In this way, GMS MIBE aims to support research and development in the disciplines of GMDS that can contribute to coping with the COVID-19 pandemic.

We request original papers that have not yet been published elsewhere and have not yet been submitted to other journals. For the manuscripts to be submitted, please refer to There you will also find a link to the manuscript submission. Please include the reference "COVID-19" when submitting your manuscript.

Submissions for this publication series are possible on an ongoing basis. All submissions are subject to a scientific peer review process. However, we will give higher priority to the publications in this series and would ask all colleagues who are eligible to participate to support us as peer reviewers as soon as possible.

The open access journal GMS MIBE offers publication opportunities that go beyond the offerings of other journals. Free of charge – for readers and authors. For example, research data, software, videos and other attachments can be added to a publication. By focusing on German-speaking countries, it is also possible to publish work that deals with the solution of regional problems and would therefore have fewer chances of being published internationally.
