New journal: Applied Bionics and Biomechanics
Woodhead Publishing Limited is delighted to announce the relaunch of the international journal Applied Bionics and Biomechanics after taking over the copyright from Open Mind Journals.
Applied Bionics and Biomechanics is an international, peer-reviewed journal of advanced technological developments based on the science of biological systems. Its coverage extends across all areas defined under the general bionics definition, ie the “Application of biological principles and living organisms structure and functions, to the study and design of engineering systems, especially electronic systems.“ While artificial body parts and related devices – both implantable and extracorporeal – is a strong focus, other applications of synthetic bionic systems may also fall within the scope of the journal, particularly those that are medically oriented. Also, issues of public policy relating to developments in bionics, are within the journal’s scope, as well as basic research underlying this emerging science, and discussion of potential practical implications for advancing bionics technologies.
