2022 marks the 50th anniversary of Annals of Biomedical Engineering! We proudly thank the past and present Editors-in-Chief, the editorial team, all reviewers and authors, and the BMES for the great cooperation.


Annals of Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary, international journal which presents original and review articles in the major fields of bioengineering and biomedical engineering.

A major aim of bioengineering is to provide integrated approaches to the solutions of biological and biomedical problems. The philosophy is to provide engineering approaches to enhance the power of the scientific method, and to maintain a balance between experimental observation and quantitative analyses. While the development of theory and of mathematical models is strongly endorsed, these should be evaluated wherever possible using biological data from experiments that test specific hypotheses.

This is the official journal of the Biomedical Engineering Society.

The average time from submission to first decision is three weeks.
After acceptance, articles are published online in about two weeks.

General Details on the Submission and Publication Procedures:
- No Page Charges
- No Fees for Online and Print Color Images
