Aim and scope
Biomedical Engineering (BE) is an English medical journal which is published quarterly by Collaboration among Research Center of Smart Molecule of Natural Genetics Resources, Research Center of Osteoporosis, and Research Center of Advance System and Materials Technology in Indonesia and distributed worldwide. The articles published mainly deal with the research, industrial and commercial aspects of biotechnology, in areas such as: Biomedicine; Biomedical Engineering; Bioinformatics; Biocatalysis, Biosensor & Biosensing; Biotechnology; Genetic Engineering and Molecular Biology; Genomics and Synthetic Biology; Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals; Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics; Nanotechnology. Original scientific researches, timely reviews, case reports, short communications, and letters to the editor related to the research and practice of biomedical engineering are encouraged. BE provides a forum for communicating such interdisciplinary research, as well as relevant results in the constituent areas of biomedicine, biochemistry, molecular biology, applied microbiology, cellular physiology, cellular nutrition in health and disease, and biochemical engineering. At present, there is no page charge for this journal.
Terms of Submission
Papers must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published previously and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The submitting author is responsible for ensuring that the article’s publication has been approved by all the other coauthors. It is also the authors’ responsibility to ensure that the articles emanating from a particular institution are submitted with the approval of the necessary institution. Only an acknowledgment from the editorial office officially establishes the date of receipt. Further correspondence and proofs will be sent to the author(s) before publication unless otherwise indicated. It is a condition of submission of a paper that the authors permit editing of the paper for readability.
During the online submission, authors will be prompted to submit a Novelty Statement to accompany their manuscript. The statement must provide information as to what is novel in the manuscript and what the advantages are compared with other articles reported so far. This statement will be taken into consideration by referees when reviewing the manuscript.
All manuscripts are subject to peer review and are expected to meet standards of academic excellence. Submissions will be considered by an editor and “if not rejected right away” by peer-reviewers, whose identities will remain anonymous to the authors.
Title and Authorship Information
The following information should be included
- Paper title
- Full author names
- Full institutional mailing addresses
- Email addresses
The manuscript should contain an abstract. The abstract should be self-contained and citation-free and should not exceed 300 words. It contains objective, material & methods, result, conclusion.
This section should be succinct with no subheadings, provide an adequate background, and state the objectives of the work undertaken.
Material and methods
This part should contain sufficient detail so that all procedures can be repeated. It can be divided into subsections if several methods are described.
In this section author should describe the main findings in the text as well as the particular statistical significance of the data, and refer the reader to the tables and figures, implying that details are shown there. Information on significance and other statistical data should preferably be given in the tables and figures. Do not combine the Results and Discussion sections for full-length papers.
This section should not repeat results. The discussion section should discuss study findings, and interpret them in the context of other trials reported in the literature providing evidence or counterevidence. In this way the validity of the results and the significance of the conclusions for the application in further research are assessed, with respect to the hypothesis, relevance of methods, and significance of differences observed.
This should clearly explain the main conclusions of the work highlighting its importance and relevance.
All acknowledgments (if any) should be included at the very end of the paper before the references and may include supporting grants, presentations, and so forth.
Authors are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in text should be identified using numbers in square brackets (e.g., “as discussed by Smith ”; “as discussed elsewhere [9, 10]”). All references should be cited within the text; otherwise, these references will be automatically removed.

Preparation of Figure
Upon submission of an article, authors are supposed to include all figures and tables in the PDF file of the manuscript. Figures and tables should not be submitted in separate files. If the article is accepted, authors will be asked to provide the source files of the figures. Each figure should be supplied in a separate electronic file. All figures should be cited in the paper in a consecutive order. Figures should be supplied in either vector art formats (Illustrator, EPS, WMF, FreeHand, CorelDraw, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) or bitmap formats (Photoshop, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.). Bitmap images should be of 300 dpi resolution at least unless the resolution is intentionally set to a lower level for scientific reasons. If a bitmap image has labels, the image and labels should be embedded in separate layers.
Preparation of Table
Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Every table must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading. Vertical rules should not be used.
Corrected proofs must be returned to the publisher within 2-3 days of receipt. The publisher will do everything possible to ensure prompt publication. It will therefore be appreciated if the manuscripts and figures conform from the outset to the style of the journal.
