    EPJ Nonlinear Biomedical Physics is a peer-reviewed, open access journal for the dissemination of knowledge about the applications of nonlinear dynamics and complexity-inspired integrative systems science, to the quantitative modeling and understanding of how structure, function and/or dysfunctions and diseases, often concomitantly, emerge in complex biomedical matter, systems and processes. The focus will be on the application-driven development of theoretical, experimental and computational techniques. This includes the development of relevant methodologies, instrumentation, and related advanced technology.

    EPJ Nonlinear Biomedical Physics publishes in sections based on subject area. Authors may choose at submission one of the following sections:

    Interdisciplinary Topics
    This section is devoted to the exploration of a number of relevant topics including but not limited to psychophysics, fractals in medicine, methods of physical therapy, structure-function relationships, network topology, dynamics of anesthesia, nonlinear signal and image analysis, anatomopathology and virtual patient simulations.
    Section Editor-in-Chief and Founding Editor: Wlodzimierz Klonowski, Polish Academy of Sciences

    Physics of Biological Systems and Their Interactions
    This section is concerned with the fundamental physical principles that govern functional units of living systems (such as organs and organ systems) at intermediate and macroscopic scales. Emphasis is on the investigation of biological transport systems and networks (such as e.g. the cardiovascular system) and their couplings to similar or other type of functional units (e.g. biological information processing systems). In contrast to the goal of efficient mathematical modelling in systems biology, the focus of this section is on the search for basic principles and operating mechanisms.
    Section Editor-in-Chief: Aneta Stefanovska, University of Lancaster

    Physics of Cancer and Oncology
    Cancer research is a multidisciplinary effort in which physical methods and concepts have been playing an increasingly prominent role. In this section all aspects of experimental, computational and theoretical physics with applications to cancer research and oncology in general will be given a forum for the dissemination of latest results. Areas of research of particular interest include: quantitative models of tumor initiation and progression, mechanical and electrical properties of cancer cells, ionizing radiation effects on sub-cellular structures, nanotechnology applications in oncology, tumor imaging techniques, pharmacokinetics of chemotherapeutic agents, models of metabolic and genomic instabilities, evolutionary models of cancer.
    Section Editor-in-Chief: Jack Tuszynski, University of Alberta

    Systems Biology and Dynamical Diseases
    In this section, methods and results from systems biology, their underlying physical principles and their potential medical applications are explored. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) the analysis of system-wide data, modeling strategies in systems biology, metabolic diseases, mathematical models of biological systems or of disease dynamics, physical insights into biological systems or into disease dynamics, methods from nonlinear dynamics applied to topics in systems biology.
    Section Editor-in-Chief: Marc-Thorsten Hütt, Jacobs University Bremen

    Systems Neurosciences and Integrative Brain Research
    The section is devoted to the development, exploration and application of integrative concepts in systems neuroscience and nonlinear brain dynamics. Its scope ranges from theoretical, experimental, informatics to methodological research.
    Section Editor-in-Chief: Viktor Jirsa, University of Aix-Marseille

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.
