The Journal of Micro-Bio Robotics (JMBR) focuses on small-scale robotic systems, which could be also biologically inspired, integrated with biological entities, or used for biological or biomedical applications. The journal aims to report the significant progresses in such new research topics.

JMBR is devoted to the theory, experiments, and applications of micro/nano- and biotechnologies and small-scale robotics. It promotes both theoretical and practical engineering research based on the analysis and synthesis from the micro/nano level to the biological level of robotics. JMBR includes survey and research articles.

Authors are invited to submit their original research articles or review articles for publication consideration. All submissions will be peer reviewed subject to the standards of the journal. Manuscripts based on previously published conference papers must be extended substantially.

  • COVID-19 and 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.
