Springer expands publishing partnership with the Biomedical Engineering Society

March 13, 2008

Springer and the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) will launch a new international journal called Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering (CMBE) in March 2008. Springer is already the publisher of the BMES journal Annals of Biomedical Engineering.

Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering will publish first-rate articles in the frontier areas of cellular and molecular bioengineering, thus advancing this rapidly evolving new field that addresses problems at the interface of cellular-molecular biology and engineering. The overarching aim is to foster the understanding of mechanical, chemical, and electrical processes to better understand the integrated systems nature of cellular and molecular processes. The scope of the journal includes behaviors of biomolecules, behaviors of cells, computational modeling of molecules and cells, and experimental methods for cellular and molecular bioengineering. The expert international editorial board is headed by co-editors X. Edward Guo of Columbia University, NY, and David J. Odde of the University of Minnesota.

Shu Chien, President of the BMES, said, "The publication of the new journal Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering in the interdisciplinary field of biomedical engineering is one of the most important developments at the BMES in this new century. With the publication of our second official BMES journal, in addition to the Annals of Biomedical Engineering, we have amplified the successful cooperation between BMES and Springer in publishing top-quality journals in biomedical engineering. The two journals will play major roles in accomplishing BMES' mission to promote and enhance biomedical knowledge worldwide and its utilization for the health and well-being of humankind."

Aaron Johnson, Senior Editor, Biomedical Engineering at Springer, said, "The Biomedical Engineering Society has long been a leader in the science, translation and application of biomedical engineering research to the improvement of the human condition. A key challenge in improving human health is to understand how cellular behavior arises from molecular-level interactions. Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering serves as a new forum in understanding this relationship, indicative of the BMES' vision and leadership. Together with the BMES flagship journal, Annals of Biomedical Engineering, the new journal CMBE continues the Society's charter of excellence in biomedical engineering, and Springer is proud to be the publishing partner in this new initiative."

Springer will publish Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering quarterly in both print and electronic formats. It will be available on www.springerlink.com, Springer's online information platform and will include fast, electronic publication in Online First™, as well as Cross Reference Linking and Table of Contents Alerts. In addition, all potential authors have the option, through the Springer Open Choice™ program, of publishing their articles using the open access publishing model.

Founded in 1968, the Biomedical Engineering Society (www.bmes.org) fosters translation of biomedical engineering and technology to industrial and clinical applications, holds scientific meetings, publishes high-quality journals, promotes the education and diversity of the next generation of biomedical engineers and augments the impact of biomedical engineering on economy and human health.

Springer (www.springer.com) is the second-largest publisher of journals in the science, technology, and medicine (STM) sector and the largest publisher of STM books. It publishes on behalf of more than 300 academic associations and professional societies. Springer is part of Springer Science+Business Media, one of the world's leading suppliers of scientific and specialist literature. The group publishes over 1,700 journals and more than 5,500 new books a year, as well as the largest STM eBook Collection worldwide. Springer has operations in over 20 countries in Europe, the USA, and Asia, and some 5,000 employees.
