How do you feel about Biomaterials Science as a place to publish research on this topic?

I want to start by thanking the editorial team of the journal Biomaterials Science for considering our manuscript for publication in this journal.  Biomaterials Scienceis a fast-growing journal which has seen a steady growth over the past couple of years in terms of readership and quality of papers published. It is one of the Q1 journals in the field of biomedical engineering and biomaterials research and is a preferred journal for a lot of scientists worldwide working in this field. So, getting our paper accepted in Biomaterials Scienceis a great satisfaction for me and my team. Our manuscript, which provides a detailed discussion on the fundamentals of interaction of biomaterials (from macroscale to nanoscale) with pathogens like bacteria and viruses, is a topic which is very well suited and apt for the wide readership of this journal. Having this paper in Biomaterials Science will surely increase its visibility to the scientific community at large and I believe that the readers will greatly benefit from this paper.
