New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Nature Biomedical Engineering
“Nature Biomedical Engineering aspires to become the most prominent publishing venue in biomedical engineering by bringing together the most important advances in the discipline, enhancing their visibility by means of opinion and news articles, and providing overviews of the state of the art in each field through topic-, disease- or technology-focused review articles.
“The journal’s editorial team strives for excellence in content selection, commissioning and editing, in author and reviewer service, and in engagement with the biomedical engineering community. In particular, Nature Biomedical Engineering aims to
- cover the full spectrum of research from the interdisciplinary discipline of biomedical engineering, inspire biomedical engineers to help solve outstanding health challenges, and effectively disseminate the successes of the discipline to the wider scientific community.
- uphold the standards of content quality and author service expected of the Nature-branded family of journals.
- engage with the broad biomedical engineering community, through regular editorial presence at key conferences, visits to laboratories and hospitals, and participation in social media.
“Research in biomedical engineering involves both discovery and invention. Clinical advances provide input for further improvements in methodology and for generating hypotheses to be tested in the laboratory; and conversely, the results of fundamental advances in biology, medicine, materials and physicochemical and engineering processes can lead to the development of therapy and technology that may reach the clinic. Indeed, major inventions of biomedical engineering — such as artificial joints, magnetic resonance imaging, heart pacemakers, heart–lung machines and angioplasties — are built on findings stemming from basic research and have enabled further discoveries. By publishing content that traverses field boundaries, Nature Biomedical Engineering helps to build bridges between bench researchers, clinicians and medical engineers.”
Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2017) to present.
