The Journal mainly promotes the novel emerging Biomaterial applications to Medical Sciences like Biomaterials, Tissue Engineering, Regenerative Medicine, Bionanotechnology, developing medical devices, implants, nanomaterials, bioengineering materials, 3D Printing in Medicine, materials science, biomedical applications, Mechanical Engineering, and diagnostic systems.

Biomaterials & Medical Applications mainly focuses on all the key areas of Biomaterials Engineering to clinical practice and medical technologies. The scope of the Journal encompasses the study of Biomaterials: Synthesis & Characterization, types of materials used in Medicine and the development of Biomaterials for Medical applications.

The journal accepts original manuscripts in the form of research article, review article, short communication, scientific correspondence, letters to editor and editorials for publication. All the articles published are open access and can be easily accessed online without paying any subscription charges.

Manuscripts can be submitted online through Online Submission System or as an e-mail attachment to the editorial office at All the submitted articles are screened through a peer review system. Approval of at least two independent reviewers is mandatory for the acceptance of the manuscript. The whole process of review and article processing can be easily tracked online.


Biomaterials are biocompatible,non toxic, non carcinogenic,non immunogenic and non tetratogenic synthetic substance with adequate physical and mechanical properties used widely in medical applications to augment or replace a natural body function(therapeutic uses)that can be implanted or partially implanted or used as totally external devices. Medical applications include drug delivery,clinical therapies, regenerative medicines,tissue engineering,implantable devices.

Biomaterials in Drug Delivery

Drug delivery decribes the formulations or technologies of transfering or administering a drug or pharmaceutical product in desired amount inside the body to achieve the desired therapeutic effect.It should be safe and reliable with proper dosage.Drug release is from diffusion, degradation, swelling, and affinity-based mechanisms. The rapid growth of nanoscale materials led the existance of injectable targeted drug delivery systems in the form of inserts (vaginal,ophthalmic), implants (intramuscular),topical(skin patches), surface coated (oral tablets),injected nanocarrier ( polymer-drug conjugates) etc.

Bioelectrodes and Biosensors

Bioelectrodes are sensors used to transmit information into or out of the bodyand are mainly applied in cardiology and neurology applications. Surface or transcutaneous electrodes used to monitor or measure electrical events in the body. A biosensor uses biological molecules, tissues, organisms to measure chemical or biochemical concentrations. Biosensors can be used in many medical and non-medical applications. Biomedical sensors detect simple physical parameters like blood pressure or temperature to blood glucose. Biosensors works by changing the pH, ions, blood gases (O2, CO2 and etc.), drugs, hormones, proteins, viruses, bacteria, tumors and etc.

Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering utilizes the living cells along with engineering methods and suitable biocompatible and physiochemical factors for improving or replacing biological tissues(blader,skin,muscles,blood vessels,bone,cartilages).It mainly involves the use of a scaffold for the formation of new viable tissue for a medical purpose. It performs specific biochemical functions using cells within an artificially-created support system (e.g. an artificial pancreas, or a bio artificial liver).

Orthopedic Bio-materials

Orthopedic biomaterials are implantable devices acting as substitutes for the injured or damaged tissues such as bone,cartilages,joints,ligaments,tendons so as to perform the regular biological functions at ease. These include hip-knee joint replacements,spine implants, bone allografts etc. These are biocompatabile,non toxic and non immunogenic synthetic substances.

Cardiovascular Implantable Devices

Cardiovascular is the study related to the circulatory system that includes functioning of heart and blood vessels (artery,capillaries,veins and veinule),oxygen transport ,carbon dioxide and waste elimination ,blood pumping,Circulatory loops(pulmonary circulation loop and Systemic circulation loop),Coronary circulation,Hepatic portal circulation,heart chambers,heart valves,auricle and ventricle,blood(RBC,WBC,Platelets,plasma). Cardiovascular diseases is the leading cause of death in most of the developed countries.In cardiovascular applications biomaterials can be used as heart valves,cardiac pacemaker, stent grafts,vascular grafts,blood vessel prostheses that improves cardiac function. These are biocompatible and non hazardous to human body.

Dental Restorative Materials

Dental practises is the healing arts concerned with the teeth and associated structures of the oral cavity, including prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease and restoration of defective or missing teeth e.g., the restoration of tooth crowns and bridges, root replacements and surgical procedures performed in and about the oral cavity. Dental restorative materials can be used for both long and short term applications. The biomaterials should be biocompatible, bond and match permanently with tooth structure,exhibit similar properties a sthat of tooth enamel and dentin along with other tissues,capable of initiating tissue repair.

Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process):
Biomaterials & Medical Applications is participating in the Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) with an additional prepayment of $99 apart from the regular article processing fee. Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process is a special service for the article that enables it to get a faster response in the pre-review stage from the handling editor as well as a review from the reviewer. An author can get a faster response of pre-review maximum in 3 days since submission, and a review process by the reviewer maximum in 5 days, followed by revision/publication in 2 days. If the article gets notified for revision by the handling editor, then it will take another 5 days for external review by the previous reviewer or alternative reviewer.

Acceptance of manuscripts is driven entirely by handling editorial team considerations and independent peer-review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to regular peer-reviewed publication or a fast editorial review process. The handling editor and the article contributor are responsible for adhering to scientific standards. The article FEE-Review process of $99 will not be refunded even if the article is rejected or withdrawn for publication.

The corresponding author or institution/organization is responsible for making the manuscript FEE-Review Process payment. The additional FEE-Review Process payment covers the fast review processing and quick editorial decisions, and regular article publication covers the preparation in various formats for online publication, securing full-text inclusion in a number of permanent archives like HTML, XML, and PDF, and feeding to different indexing agencies.


Articles published in Biomaterials and Medical Applications have been cited by esteemed scholars and scientists all around the world. Biomaterials and Medical Applications has got h-index 5 , which means every article in Biomaterials and Medical Applications has got 5 average citations.
