Announcing the launch of In Review

BMC Biomedical Engineering, 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

A call for unity at TERMIS 2018

BMC Biomedical Engineering recently attended the 2018 Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society World Congress in Kyoto, Japan. This triennial meeting attracted a wide range of delegates from academia, industry and government. In this blog we describe some of the meeting’s highlights!

Aims and scope

BMC Biomedical Engineering is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of biomedical engineering, including fundamental, translational and clinical research. It combines tools and methods from biology and medicine with mathematics, physical sciences and engineering towards the understanding of human biology and disease and the improvement of human health.

  • Biomaterials, nanomedicine and tissue engineering
  • Medical technologies, robotics and rehabilitation engineering
  • Biosensors and bioelectronics
  • Computational and systems biology
  • Biomechanics
  • Biomedical Imaging
