Aims & Scope

The Biochemical Engineering Journal aims to promote progress in the crucial chemical engineering aspects of the development of biological processes associated with everything from raw materials preparation to product recovery relevant to industries as diverse as medical/healthcare, industrial biotechnology, and environmental biotechnology.

The Journal welcomes full length original research papers, short communications, and review papers* in the following research fields:

Biocatalysis (enzyme or microbial) and biotransformations, including immobilized biocatalyst preparation and kinetics
Biosensors and Biodevices including biofabrication and novel fuel cell development
Bioseparations including scale-up and protein refolding/renaturation
Environmental Bioengineering including bioconversion, bioremediation, and microbial fuel cells

Bioreactor Systems including characterization, optimization and scale-up
Bioresources and Biorefinery Engineering including biomass conversion, biofuels, bioenergy, and optimization
Industrial Biotechnology including specialty chemicals, platform chemicals and neutraceuticals
Modeling, Optimization and Control including neural networks, novel control systems, economics, and sustainability assessment

Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering including bioartificial organs, cell encapsulation, and controlled release
Cell Culture Engineering (plant, animal or insect cells) including viral vectors, monoclonal antibodies, recombinant proteins, vaccines, and secondary metabolites
Cell Therapies and Stem Cells including pluripotent, mesenchymal and hematopoietic stem cells; immunotherapies; tissue-specific differentiation; and cryopreservation
Metabolic Engineering, Systems and Synthetic Biology including OMICS, bioinformatics, in silico biology, and metabolic flux analysis
Protein Engineering including enzyme engineering and directed evolution

*Authors are requested to complete a Review Proposal Form for Editorial approval prior to submission of the review article. Proposals can be submitted to Ms. Dora Liu ( or one of the Editors.


For biochemical engineers, biotechnologists, process engineers and product engineers.
