Community recruitment for a large genetics study of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is a chronic disease affecting an estimated 250,000 people in the UK and approximately 1.5 million in the USA. There is no biomolecular explanation why some people are at greater risk of being diagnosed with ME/CFS. This is despite many studies highlighting changes in biomolecules or cell types as being characteristic of ME/CFS. Researchers are recruiting up to 25,000 people in the UK with a clinical diagnosis of ME/CFS. These will include 5,000 people whose ME/CFS diagnosis was a consequence of SARS-CoV-2 infection. The study should generate hypotheses regarding the genes, mechanisms and cell types contributing to ME/CFS disease aetiology.

Aims and scope

BMC Neurology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of neurological disorders, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology.

Peer Review Taxonomy

This journal is participating in a pilot of NISO/STM's Working Group on Peer Review Taxonomy, to identify and standardize definitions and terminology in peer review practices in order to make the peer review process for articles and journals more transparent. Further information on the pilot is available here.

The following summary describes the peer review process for this journal:

  • Identity transparency: Single anonymized
  • Reviewer interacts with: Editor
  • Review information published: Review reports. Reviewer Identities reviewer opt in. Author/reviewer communication

We welcome your feedback on this Peer Review Taxonomy Pilot. Please can you take the time to complete this short survey.

Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.

You can publish your data in BMC Genomic Data (genomic, transcriptomic and high-throughput genotype data) or in BMC Research Notes (data from across all natural and clinical sciences). 

More information about our unique article type can be found on the BMC Genomic Data and BMC Research Notes journal websites.
