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
- Optional Open Access Publication Fee (APC) – USD 3860,- / Euro 3060,- / GBP 2560,-

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
