Aims & Scope

The Journal of the Mechanical Behavior of Biomedical Materials is concerned with the mechanical deformation, damage and failure under applied forces, of biological material (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 medical and dental science. Reports of fundamental scientific investigations are welcome, as are articles concerned with the practical application of materials in medical devices. Both experimental and theoretical work is of interest; theoretical papers will normally include comparison of predictions with experimental data, though we recognize that this may not always be appropriate. 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 behaviour and an understanding of the special nature of biomedical materials.

Examples of relevant subjects include:

  • Stress/strain/time relationships for biological materials
  • Fracture mechanics of hard tissues
  • Tribological properties of joint materials and their replacements, including coatings
  • Mechanical characterisation of tissue engineering materials and scaffolds
  • The mechanical behaviour of cells, including adhesion
  • Mechanical properties of biological molecules such as DNA
  • Long-term fatigue, creep and wear properties of biomaterials used in implants
  • The behaviour of the human tissues under impact loading
  • Mechanical performance of materials in plants and animals
  • New techniques for the measurement of mechanical properties in biomedical materials, in both laboratory and clinical practice
  • Computer simulations of material behavior
  • Clinical case histories related to material performance
  • Mechanobiology: response of cells and tissues to biophysical stimuli

The journal publishes papers from the proceedings of the International Conference on the Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues; special issues devoted to particular subjects or events will also be considered.
