Hopefully you’ve seen our previous announcements, but if you missed them RSC Publishing and the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences, Kyoto University, Japan are launching a new journal – Biomaterials Science. This will be an international, high impact journal bringing together the molecular and mesoscopic interactions of biomaterials and their applications.
Articles in Biomaterials Science will be free to access* until the end of 2014 which means they will reach the widest possible audience. We invite you to support Biomaterials Science and not-for-profit publishing by submitting your next article: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/bmsci
If you’re wondering what the journal will cover you can read About Biomaterials Science here, but briefly Biomaterials Science has a broad scope that covers the fundamental science of biomaterials through to their biomedical applications. We’ll be highlighting different areas of the scope over the next few months but to start off with…
Mesoscopic science of cells and materials
Biomaterials Science will publish articles covering fundamental and applied research on Mesoscopic science of cells and materials. To celebrate this we’ve made a few articles published in RSC journals free to access for 4 weeks. I hope you enjoy reading them.

- Critical Review: Controlled polymer synthesis—from biomimicry towards synthetic biology: George Pasparakis, Natalio Krasnogor , Leroy Cronin , Benjamin G. Davis and Cameron Alexander, Chem. Soc. Rev., 2010, 39, 286-300.
- Paper: Hierarchical coarse-graining strategy for protein-membrane systems to access mesoscopic scales: Gary S. Ayton, Edward Lyman and Gregory A. Voth, Faraday Discuss., 2010, 144, 347-357.
