    Aims and Scope


    Medical & Biological Engineering & Computing, MBEC, is the official journal of the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering, IFMBE.

    MBEC covers the entire spectrum of biomedical and clinical engineering. The journal aims to present exciting and vital experimental and theoretical developments in biomedical science and technology and to report on advances in computer-based methodologies in these multidisciplinary subjects. The journal also strives to incorporate new and emerging fields including cellular engineering, molecular imaging, and evolving technologies.

    MBEC publishes Original Research Articles as well as Reviews and Technical Notes. The Rapid Communications category focuses on material that will be of immediate value to the readership, while the Controversies section provides a forum to exchange views on selected issues thereby stimulating a vigorous and informed debate in this exciting and high profile field. The functionality of theoretical and mathematical models should wherever possible be assessed using biological or clinical data.

    The Editor in Chief, Deputy Editor and Associate Editors have backgrounds in Biomedical Engineering, Physics, Biology and Medicine. In combination with Springer’s outstanding editorial expertise, MBEC ensures an expert and rapid route to publication of your submissions.
