Announcing the launch of In Review

BMC Zoology, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received 

Featured blog: Fishing for iodine

Iodine is critical for brain development, especially the higher cognitive functions of the brain. Here, researchers describe how the foraging activities of bonobos in the Congo basin give us an insight into how prehistoric humans obtained this nutrient, and is the first report of iodine consumption by a nonhuman primate.
