Call for Papers & Free Access to Reviews on ‘Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications’

Biomaterials ScienceBiomaterials Science is inviting submissions on ‘Nanomaterials for biomedical applications’

Publishing only very high quality articles, the journal will cover the fundamental science of biomaterials though to their biomedical applications, including ‘Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications’.

Articles will be free to access* until the end of 2014 giving your article the widest possible audience. You can find our online submission system at:

Nanomaterials for biomedical applications is an important topic covered by Biomaterials Science so to celebrate the launch, and highlight this part of the journal scope, we’ve made a selection of reviews from across RSC journals free to read until 3rd August.
