Aims and Scope

Advanced Healthcare Materials is an international, interdisciplinary forum for peer-reviewed papers on materials science aimed at promoting human health. Advanced Healthcare Materials was first published as a special focus section Advanced Materials in 2011 and launched as a journal at the start of 2012. Advanced Healthcare Materials, which is listed in three ISI categories (Materials Science - Biomaterials, Engineering - Biomedical, and Nanoscience & Nanotechnology), received impact factor of 5.797 in 2015.

Scope of Advanced Healthcare Materials

Advanced Healthcare Materials bridges the gap between fundamental laboratory research and clinical practice, covering all aspects of materials science in medicine and biotechnology, including:

  • Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
  • Bioelectronics and implantable devices
  • Imaging, biosensors and diagnostic tools
  • Drug-delivery systems
  • Infectious disease and vaccination
  • Biocompatibility and toxicology
  • Wound healing and traumatic injury
  • Cancer therapies
  • Materials for personalized medicine

Coverage ranges from fundamental research to actual clinical practice including materials synthesis and characterisation of the physical, chemical, and biological properties of these materials; development of devices and their clinical and biotechnological application; imaging and diagnosis of living systems; delivery, release and treatment of disease and injury.

Advanced Healthcare Materials contains an attractive mix of Communications, Full papers, Review Articles, Progress Reports, Research News, and Essays with the same article specifications as Advanced Materials.
