Biometrics and human biometric characteristics form the basis of research in biological measuring techniques for the purpose of people identification and recognition. IJBM addresses the fundamental and emerging areas in computer science that deal with biological measurements. It covers both the theoretical and practical aspects of human identification and verification.


 Topics covered include

  • Age and gender recognition
  • Anthropology/physical anthropology
  • Audio-visual
  • DNA, genetic inheritance
  • Ear, face and iris recognition, retina
  • Emotion detection
  • Facial thermograms
  • Fingerprints and palm prints
  • Gait recognition
  • Hand geometry, hand veins
  • Kansei engineering
  • Keystroke dynamics and mouse gestures
  • Odour and taste
  • Signature
  • Voice

More on this journal...

The key objective of IJBM is to provide the academic community with an international forum in the field of human authentication and people identity verification from both physiological and behavioural points of view. It aims to publish new insights into current and emerging innovations in computer systems and technology for biometrics development and its applications.


IJBM provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field biometrics to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.


IJBM 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 biometrics will occasionally be published, particularly as post-conference issues. Such issues will contain extended versions of selected papers presented at international conferences on biometrics.
