Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part B: Applied Biomaterials

Aims and Scope

Journal of Biomedical Materials Research – Part B: Applied Biomaterials is a highly interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal serving the needs of biomaterials professionals who design, develop, produce and apply biomaterials and medical devices. It has the common focus of biomaterials applied to the human body and covers all disciplines where medical devices are used.  Papers are published on biomaterials related to medical device development and manufacture, degradation in the body, nano- and biomimetic- biomaterials interactions, mechanics of biomaterials, implant retrieval and analysis, tissue-biomaterial surface interactions, wound healing, infection, drug delivery, standards and regulation of devices, animal and pre-clinical studies of biomaterials and medical devices, and tissue-biopolymer-material combination products.  Manuscripts are published in one of six formats:

• original research reports

• short research and development reports

• scientific reviews

• current concepts articles

• special reports

• editorials

 Journal of Biomedical Materials Research – Part B: Applied Biomaterials is an official journal of the Society for Biomaterials, Japanese Society for Biomaterials, the Australasian Society for Biomaterials, and the Korean Society for Biomaterials.  Manuscripts from all countries are invited but must be in English.  Authors are not required to be members of the affiliated Societies, but members of these societies are encouraged to submit their work to the journal for consideration.
