Instructions to authors
This monthly journal publishes fundamental research on the properties ofpolymeric biomaterials and themechanisms of interaction between such biomaterials and living organisms,with attention being focused at the molecular and cellular levels.The journal publishes original research papers, short communicationsand review articles. The publication of this research is expected tocontribute significantly to future progress in the practicalapplications of these substances.
Biomaterials may be defined as materials which are used in contact withtissue, blood, cells, proteins and any other living substance.The Journal of Biomaterials Science, Polymer Edition, deals withpolymers, synthetic and natural, as the most versatile biomaterials,having wide-ranging applications in the pharmaceutical,biomedical andbiological fields. For example, they may form the basis for tissueengineering and the development of artificial organs andnon-thrombogenic materials, devices and systems for diagnosis andtherapy, cell cultivation substrata, cell-sorters, membranes,adsorbents, biosensors and delivery systems for bioactive agents.
The existing journals on biomaterials tend to publish papers whichemphasize the applications of the science. The Journal ofBiomaterials Science, Polymer Edition, seeks to redress thebalance by providing an international forum primarily focused on fundamentalbiomaterials research.
