The Journal of the Mechanical Behavior of Biomedical Materials is concerned with the mechanical deformation, damage and failure under applied forces, of biological materials (at the tissue, cellular and molecular levels) and of biomaterials, i.e. those materials which are designed to mimic or replace biological materials. The primary focus of the journal is the synthesis of materials science, biology and clinical practice. Reports of fundamental scientifi c investigations of a theoretical or experimental nature are welcome, as are articles concerned with the practical application of materials in medical devices. The journal also publishes technical notes concerned with emerging experimental or theoretical techniques, letters to the editor and, by invitation, review articles and papers describing existing techniques for the benefit of an interdisciplinary readership.
The journal offers online submission, a short time to publication, the opportunity for ample space to develop an argument in full, and the services of referees with expertise in mechanical behavior and an understanding of the special nature of biomedical materials.
