Bioinspiration and Biomimetics publishes research involving the study and distillation of principles and functions found in biological systems that have been developed through evolution, and application of this knowledge to produce novel and exciting basic technologies and new approaches to solving scientific problems. It provides a forum for interdisciplinary research which acts as a conduit to facilitate the two-way flow of ideas and understanding between the extensive bodies of knowledge of the different disciplines. It has two principal aims: to draw on biology to enrich engineering and to draw from engineering to enrich biology.The journal aims to include input from across all intersecting areas of both fields. In biology, this would include work in all fields from physiology to ecology, with either zoological or botanical focus. In engineering, this would include both design and practical application of biomimetic or bioinspired devices and systems. Typical areas of interest include: systems, designs and structure communication and navigation cooperative behaviour self-organizing biological systems self-healing and self-assembly aerial locomotion and aerospace applications of biomimetics biomorphic surface and subsurface systems marine dynamics: swimming and underwater dynamics applications of novel materials biomechanics; including movement, locomotion, fluidics cellular behaviour sensors and senses biomimetic or bioinformed approaches to geological exploration.
The goal of the journal is to publish original research findings that contribute to our knowledge about the composition, properties, and performance of materials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Recognizing the advances in biomedical materials being made throughout the world, the journal will seek to serve as a vehicle for dissemination of work conducted internationally.

Journal of Breath Research: Volatiles for Medical Diagnosis is dedicated to all aspects of breath science, with the major focus on analysis of exhaled breath in physiology and medicine, and the diagnosis and treatment of breath odours.In recent years it has emerged that many different volatile compounds are present in exhaled breath, some now known to be present at trace levels in the parts-per-million (ppm), parts-per-billion (ppb) and even at the parts-per-trillion (ppt) levels, and that these can be valuable indicators of metabolic status and can distinguish between the healthy and diseased states if they can be unambiguously identified and their levels measured to an acceptable accuracy. This represents a major challenge that is being met by both physical scientists and clinicians with increasing success, principally due to the remarkable developments in gas analytical techniques and sampling methodology that have occurred during the last decade. Exhaled breath (gas) and exhaled breath condensate analyses are non-invasive and of value to medical practitioners (including specialists in internal medicine, oncology, dental medicine, renal medicine, paediatrics, psychiatry, sleep medicine, sports medicine, workplace medicine), physiologists, microbiologists, biochemists and pharmacologists.Journal of Breath Research provides a forum for the presentation and critical evaluation of the different analytical techniques used for analysis of breath samples for medical diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring. These include gas-chromatography with mass-spectrometric detection (GCMS), selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS), proton-transfer reaction mass spectrometry (PTR-MS), ion mobility spectroscopy (IMS), laser spectrometry and sensor technology. Appropriate sampling procedures for breath and the interpretation of results from the clinical and physiological viewpoints will be a particular focus. It will also be of interest to chemists, physicists and laser experts with an interest in gas analysis.
