Aims and Scope 
Applied Bionics and Biomechanics is an international, peer reviewed journal of advanced technological developments based on the science of biological systems. The Journal is aimed at researchers and practitioners in the fields of biomechanics, bioengineering and synthetic biological systems, biomedical engineering, biomimetics, cybernetics and robotics; developers, manufacturers and distributors of applied bionic technology products; and public policy planners and administrators in the areas of technology and health.

While artificial body parts and related devices (both implantable and extracorporeal) are a strong focus, other applications of synthetic bionic systems also fall within the scope of the journal, particularly those that are medically-oriented. Issues of public policy relating to developments in bionics, as well as basic research underlying this emerging science, are within the Journal's scope, provided basic research is accompanied by well-reasoned extrapolation and discussion of potential practical implications for advancing bionics technologies.

Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
  1. biomechanics, bioengineering, biomedical engineering and related areas of research at the molecular, cellular and organ tissue levels with a well-identified link to practical applications
  2. extracorporeal technologies that directly or indirectly affect biological function
  3. implantable, attachable or wearable technologies
  4. augmented reality and augmented perception
  5. bio-robotics and humanoid robotics
  6. biomimetics
  7. diagnostic technologies based on biological systems
  8. public policy considerations for development of bionics technologies
  9. economic and cost issues
  10. societal and individual acceptance, and quality of life implications
  11. ethical matters

These and other topics will be addressed through a variety of approaches, including:
  1. original research reports (full papers and short communications)
  2. invited reviews
  3. opinion pieces
  4. perspective commentaries

All published research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymous refereeing by independent expert referees.
