IJBET addresses cutting-edge research in the multi-disciplinary area of biomedical engineering and technology. Medical science incorporates scientific/technological advances combining to produce more accurate diagnoses, effective treatments with fewer side effects, and improved ability to prevent disease and provide superior-quality healthcare. A key field here is biomedical engineering/technology, offering a synthesis of physical, chemical, mathematical and computational sciences combined with engineering principles to enhance R&D in biology, medicine, behaviour, and health. IJBET includes the Asia-Pacific Chapter in Biomedical Wireless Technology (APC-BWT).

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJBET are to establish an effective channel of communication between researchers and practitioners, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the complex roles of biomedical engineering and technology. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field from the laboratory bench to the patient’s bedside. Healthcare is a global industry; the international dimension is therefore emphasised in order to facilitate the development of solutions that have a universal focus.


IJBET provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the fields of medical technology, medicine, biology, physics, chemistry, computer science and engineering, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work as well as to become aware of critical issues to facilitate the development of new procedures, or to conduct research needed to solve specific clinical problems


IJBET publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in biomedical engineering and technology will occasionally be published.

In addition, an issue per year of IJBET will be devoted to papers from the Asia-Pacific Chapter in Biomedical Wireless Technology (APC-BWT). The APC-BWT Chapter actively encourages the publication of technical articles, applications, surveys and tutorials for IJBET. The Chapter publishes original contributions on biomedical wireless technology.
