This special issue is a call for papers about less commonly published aspects of Biobanking with a focus on electronic medical record linked Biobanks. These include study design and management, ethical considerations and potential solutions, and best practices in information technology tools for Biobank management. Retrospective reviews of well established biobanks, case studies, and implementation research papers all lend themselves well to this topic. Other topics along these lines are also welcome.
