Biomaterials is an international journal covering the science and
application of biomaterials and associated medical devices. It is the aim of
the journal to provide a peer-reviewed forum for the publication of original
papers and authoritative review papers dealing with the most important
issues facing the use of materials in clinical practice. The scope of the
journal covers the basic science and engineering aspects of biomaterials,
including their mechanical, physical, chemical and biological properties,
relevant design and production characteristics of devices constructed of
these materials, and their clinical performance. In this context,
biomaterials are defined as all those materials used in medical devices in
which contact with the tissues of the patient is an important and guiding
feature of their use and performance. They include a range of metals and
alloys, glasses and ceramics, polymers, composites and natural or
tissue-derived materials, including combinations of synthetic materials and
living tissue components.

Biomaterials scientists, materials scientists, clinicians (vascular
surgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, dentists) biomedical engineers, biochemists,
pharmaceutical scientists.
