  About the Journal

Bone Materials is an international open-accessed, fully peer-reviewed journal publishing the science, clinical application and technology development of all aspects of bone materials, it publishes reviews and regular research articles. The journal provides a forum for publishing papers which advance the in-depth understanding and research of the relationship between the structure, the properties, the functions or the applications of all kinds of materials in bone science.

Original Manuscripts on clinical and laboratory research of basic and applied character which focus on the properties or performance of bone materials or the reaction of host tissues to materials are given priority publication. Other acceptable topics include application technology in clinical and laboratory technology in bone materials.

Readership: Readership cover the field of biomaterials, biomedical engineering, biochemistry, biophysics, repair and reconstruction of osteochondral tissue, repair and reconstruction of complex wounds and difficult-to-heal wounds, repair and reconstruction of multiple tissues and organs, and other related fields from basic and clinical research in the subject of tissue engineering.

Journal Ethics

Wolters Kluwer and Journal/Association are committed to meeting and upholding standards of ethical behavior at all stages of the publication process.
