About Journal of Functional Biomaterials


The Journal of Functional Biomaterials (JFB, ISSN 2079-4983) is an international and interdisciplinary scientific journal that publishes regular research papers (articles), reviews, and communications about applications of materials for biomedical use. This specific research field is the result of collaborations between different disciplines: chemistry, medicine, pharmacology, engineering, and biology. The objective of this collaboration is to lead to the implementation of new devices to restore form and human body functions. The mission of JFB is to focus the attention on physicochemical characteristics and their importance in the interactions between biomaterials and living tissues as well as studies on the preparation, performance, and use of biomaterials in biomedical devices in physiological environments. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their results in as much detail as possible.


The scope of the Journal of Functional Biomaterials includes but is not limited to:
  • Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Technology—the design of small and biological drug carriers, innovative technics of all pharmaceutical dosage forms, controlled release, bioavailability, and drug absorption;
  • Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine—biomaterial sciences, methods/technologies to engineer scaffolds from biomaterials, and scaffold-based tissue regeneration and visualization. For example, for bone, dental, and muscle tissue engineering; skin regeneration and wound healing; and so on;
  • Nanomedicine and Nanotechnologyan emerging topic in theranostics, precision medicine gene therapy, and immunotherapy, and for therapy of infectious diseases, cancer, metabolic diseases, and cardiovascular diseases;
  • Sensors for Health—advancements in diagnostic and electronic devices including sensors, DNA chips, electronic noses, and lab-on-a-chip.

MDPI Publication Ethics Statement

MDPI is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). MDPI takes the responsibility to enforce a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies and standards to ensure to add high quality scientific works to the field of scholarly publication. Unfortunately, cases of plagiarism, data falsification, inappropriate authorship credit, and the like, do arise. MDPI takes such publishing ethics issues very seriously and our editors are trained to proceed in such cases with a zero tolerance policy. To verify the originality of content submitted to our journals, we use iThenticate to check submissions against previous publications.
