Nature Biomedical Engineering

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Nature Biomedical Engineering

From the Nature website for the journal:

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.

Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z: Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine.

From the Future Medicine website for the journal:

“3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is the process of making a 3D object from a digital file. 3D printing has been in use for several years in certain areas such as manufacturing, and the aerospace and automotive industries. Excitingly, 3D printing, and the related field of 3D bioprinting, is now being used in increasingly advanced ways in healthcare, allowing new levels of precision, personalization and cost efficiency.

“Published by Future Medicine, the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine (ISSN: 2059-4755) is a peer-reviewed, print and electronic journal poised at the brink of an exciting new era in healthcare. Encompassing all aspects of bioprinting and 3D printing of relevance to medicine, the journal provides a forum for research, review and commentary in a fast-moving, inter-disciplinary research area.

“Key topics covered include:

  • 3D printing and bioprinting as they relate to:
    • Implants and prosthetics
    • Medical devices and device components, such as hearing aids, dental implants and surgical implements
    • Surgical guides
    • Tissue engineering
    • Organ replacement
    • Biological materials for drug and toxicity screening
    • Pharmaceutical research and fabrication
  • Regulatory and safety issues
  • Development of 3D printing equipment and technology
  • Patent and copyright issues
  • Health economics

“Spanning many fields, including biomedical engineering, medical devices, tissue engineering and biomaterials, the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine presents key data and opinions as they emerge. Unsolicited article proposals are welcomed and authors are required to comply fully with the journal’s Disclosure & Conflict of Interest Policy as well as major publishing guidelines, including ICMJE and GPP3.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2017) to present.
