Journal of Biomechanics - ISSN 0021-9290
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.387 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.149 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 2.576 (2018) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Description

The Journal of Biomechanics publishes reports of original and substantial findings using the principles of mechanics to explore biological problems. Analytical, as well as experimental papers may be submitted, and the journal accepts original articles, surveys and perspective articles (usually by Editorial invitation only), book reviews and letters to the Editor. The criteria for acceptance of manuscripts include excellence, novelty, significance, clarity, conciseness and interest to the readership.

Papers published in the journal may cover a wide range of topics in biomechanics, including, but not limited to:

  • Fundamental Topics - Biomechanics of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems, mechanics of hard and soft tissues, biofluid mechanics, mechanics of prostheses and implant-tissue interfaces, mechanics of cells.
  • Cardiovascular and Respiratory Biomechanics - Mechanics of blood-flow, air-flow, mechanics of the soft tissues, flow-tissue or flow-prosthesis interactions.
  • Cell Biomechanics - Biomechanic analyses of cells, membranes and sub-cellular structures; the relationship of the mechanical environment to cell and tissue response.
  • Dental Biomechanics - Design and analysis of dental tissues and prostheses, mechanics of chewing.
  • Functional Tissue Engineering - The role of biomechanical factors in engineered tissue replacements and regenerative medicine.
  • Injury Biomechanics - Mechanics of impact and trauma, dynamics of man-machine interaction.
  • Molecular Biomechanics - Mechanical analyses of biomolecules.
  • Orthopedic Biomechanics - Mechanics of fracture and fracture fixation, mechanics of implants and implant fixation, mechanics of bones and joints, wear of natural and artificial joints.
  • Rehabilitation Biomechanics - Analyses of gait, mechanics of prosthetics and orthotics.
  • Sports Biomechanics - Mechanical analyses of sports performance.
