    Biomaterials Research has now fully launched with BioMed Central and has published its first articles

    We are pleased to announce that Biomaterials Research has now fully launched with BioMed Central and has published its first articles. Supported by the Korea Research Foundation, it was founded in 1996 as the official journal of the Korean Society for Biomaterials. An electronic archive of back content can be found here.

    Biomaterials Research covers the interdisciplinary fields of biomaterials research, including novel biomaterials, cutting-edge technologies of biomaterials synthesis and fabrication, and biomedical applications in clinics and industry. Topics include, but are not limited, to functional biomaterials; drug and gene delivery systems; tissue engineering; nanomedicine and bio-imaging.

    Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology is now accepting submissions.

    Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology (NPEP) will provide a venue for researchers and clinicians interested in the applications of electrophysiological techniques for probing basic electrophysiological aberrations in neuropsychiatric disorders.

    Led by Editor-in-Chief Dr Nash Boutros (University of Missouri-Kansas City), NPEP will span basic neuroscience theory, technology and methodology, as well as clinical research and practice, with a focus on moving electrophysiology laboratory findings from the bench to bedside. The journal is supported by an expert Editorial Board, and is the latest addition to our portfolio of psychiatry journals.
