Business Announcement

Science Partner Journals

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is pleased to announce its partnership with the Korean Society for Biomaterials (KSBM) to publish Biomaterials Research as a Science Partner Journal.

Biomaterials Research’s mission is to contribute to the development of the global biomaterials field and the benefit of the community and people through the expansion of international collaboration. The journal welcomes submissions from interdisciplinary fields of biomaterials research, including novel biomaterials, cutting-edge technologies of biomaterials synthesis and fabrication, and biomedical applications in clinics and industry. Categories of manuscripts include Research Articles, Review Articles, and Communications.

Professor Byeongmoon Jeong of Ewha Womans University serves as Editor-in-Chief. Biomaterials Research is currently open for submission and publishes under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY).

Biomaterials Research’s Editor-in-Chief, Professor Byeongmoon Jeong, emphasized that “As a global top-tier journal, we will lead the cutting-edge biomedical science research, and we hope that this journal will be an excellent platform for interdisciplinary research on biomaterials and human health.”

“As the official journal of the Korean Society for Biomaterials (KSBM), we are excited about partnering with AAAS,” said Professor Jong-Chul Park, president of the KSBM.

“Our team is looking forward to the collaboration with the Korean Society for Biomaterials and publishing Biomaterials Research as a Science Partner Journal”, said Bill Moran, Publisher of the Science family of journals at AAAS. “Biomaterials Research’s commitment to the highest quality research is of great importance, and we are excited to be a part of its mission to advance, promote, and innovate the field of biomaterials, particularly regarding new biomaterials and their widespread application.”

Titles participating in the Science Partner Journal program are added on a regular basis and participation in the program is kept to English-language publications. AAAS is actively seeking new partners across scientific disciplines. Organizations participating in the Science Partner Journal program will be editorially independent and responsible for the content published in each journal. Partner organizations are responsible for establishing editorial boards committed to best practices in peer review and author service.
