As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
We are now recruiting Associate Editors for our Editorial Board to join our team of academic editors in assessing manuscripts in the field of pregnancy and childbirth.
Aims and scope
BMC Pregnancy & Childbirth is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of pregnancy and childbirth. The journal welcomes submissions on the biomedical aspects of pregnancy, breastfeeding, labor, maternal health, maternity care, trends and sociological aspects of pregnancy and childbirth.

Perhaps the outcome was unexpected? Or maybe you haven't had a chance to analyse it? Or it just didn't make it into the final paper?
Interesting data often gets overlooked. By publishing it as a data note in BMC Research Notes it can be found in PubMed, SCImago, Scopus and other indexing services.
