Acta Biomaterialia is an international journal that publishes peer-reviewed original research reports, review papers and communications in the broadly defined field of biomaterials science. The emphasis of the journal is on the relationship between biomaterial structure and function at all length scales.

The scope of Acta Biomaterialia includes:

Hypothesis-driven design of biomaterials

Biomaterial surface science linking structure to biocompatibility, including protein adsorption and cellular interactions

Biomaterial mechanical characterization and modeling at all scales

Molecular, statistical and other types of modeling applied to capture biomaterial behavior

Interactions of biological species with defined surfaces

Combinatorial approaches to biomaterial development

Structural biology as it relates structure to function for biologically derived materials that have application as a medical material, or as it aids in understanding the biological response to biomaterials

Methods for biomaterial characterization

Processing of biomaterials to achieve specific functionality

Materials development for arrayed genomic and proteomic screening
