Acta Biomaterialia

Acta Biomaterialia is an international journal that publishes peer-reviewed original research reports, review papers and communications in the broadly defined field of biomaterials science with emphasis on Structure-Property-Function relationships in Biomaterials. The emphasis of the journal is on the relationship between biomaterial structure and function at all length scales. The journal is committed to rapid peer-review and publication.

The scope of Acta Biomaterialia includes:

  1. Hypothesis-driven design of biomaterials
  2. Biomaterial surface science linking structure to biocompatibility, including protein adsorption and cellular interactions
  3. Biomaterial mechanical characterization and modeling at all scales
  4. Molecular, statistical and other types of modeling applied to capture biomaterial behavior
  5. Interactions of biological species with defined surfaces
  6. Combinatorial approaches to biomaterial development
  7. Structural biology as it relates structure to function for biologically derived materials, particularly but not exclusively for, that have application as a medical material, or as it aids in understanding the biological response to biomaterials
  8. Methods for biomaterial characterization
  9. Processing of biomaterials to achieve specific functionality
  10. Materials development for arrayed genomic and proteomic screening
