Critical Reviews™ in Biomedical Engineering (CRB) sets the standard for research and review articles of Biomedical Engineering, Engineering Medicine, Biophysics, Medical Physics and Applied Biotechnology. The mission of CRB is to facilitate communication among engineers, academic researchers, and clinicians that will translate into new research opportunities and technology discoveries. The journal highlights the most important and timely developments in broad disciplinary innovative research areas including, but not limited to, the following: bioelectronics and biomechanics, biomaterials, biomedical artificial intelligence, biomedical devices, biomedical imaging, biomedical modeling and computing, cardiovascular engineering, cell/tissue engineering, drug delivery, nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine, neuro engineering, synthetic biology, therapeutic and diagnostic technology, and other emerging topics in biomedical engineering.
CRB will include submitted and invited contributions, which will undergo rigorous peer review by two or more independent experts in the field. Collaborative works generated by multiple authors are frequently used to provide in-depth coverage from multiple viewpoints. Most articles contain in-depth appraisals of the current state-of-the-art in a specific area of research or practice and provide complete and up-to-date bibliographies.
Type of papers
The journal primarily publishes review articles deemed of interest to readers relating to biomedical engineering in both the industrial, academic and clinical communities. Review articles should summarize current knowledge and historical information that has led to the current state-of-the-art. Full papers should describe original research work not previously published, and should be complete descriptions of full investigations. Short communications should be concise and describe impactful research wherein dissemination is prior to a full, complete study/paper.
Critical Reviews™ in Biomedical Engineering (CRB) invites PhD candidates and recent graduates, along with their major advisors, to submit the literature review/background sections of their dissertation for consideration for publication. The submission must not have been previously published or submitted for publication elsewhere. CRB publishes original comprehensive critical reviews on topics in all areas of biomedical engineering of high interest to a broad audience. It is expected that the review provides a comprehensive critical analysis of existing work on a subject important for the reader to consider in their own research. It is also expected that the review contains highly relevant and informative tables and figures that will guide the reader and serve as a learning device for a deep understanding of the details and state-of-art of the subject.
