MBE is now online only
General topics appropriate for MBE include, but are not limited to, the following: All areas of mathematical biology and medicine, computational neuroscience, biomedical signal processing and data analysis, models based on nonlinear dynamics and stochastic processes to understand problems in biosciences and bioengineering, modeling and design of biologically inspired engineering systems, etc. In particular, to be considered by this journal a paper (except survey papers) should be in one (or a combination) of these three categories:
1. Papers developing and (mathematically) analyzing scientific models that have specific applications in biosciences and bioengineering;
Submission of a manuscript is a representation that the work has not been previously published (except in the form of an academic thesis), has not been copyrighted, is not being submitted for publication elsewhere, and that its submission has been approved by all of the authors and by the institution where the work was carried out. Furthermore, submission indicates that any person cited as a source of personal communications has approved such citation, and that the authors have agreed that the copyright in the article will be assigned to the publisher upon acceptance of the article.
Manuscripts should be written in fluent and clear English and submitted here. Authors are required to name two appropriate associate editors from the editorial board to review their manuscripts. Papers submitted to this journal must contain a comprehensive introductory section and an in-depth discussion section. The scientific importance and motivations of the paper and its conclusions should be made clear at the outset. Furthermore, the paper must be presented in a way that its main results and methods, together with their applicability, can be comprehended by people from a wide range of scientific fields. Manuscripts applying standard techniques to slightly new problems or providing mathematical analysis in the absence of significant scientific motivation will not be considered. Papers oriented toward experimentation or numerical simulation must have a novel and sound theoretical explanation. Survey articles must be timely and of broad interest. The article shall have an insightful historical account of the surveyed topic and articulate the topic's scientific importance.
Manuscripts style: Number each page. Page 1 should contain the title, authors names and complete affiliations. Place any footnotes to the title at the bottom of Page 1. Each paper requires an abstract not exceeding 200 words. AMS subject classifications and some key words must accompany all articles and must be placed at the bottom of Page 1. E-mail addresses of all authors should be placed at the end of the paper. Each paper requires a running head (abbreviated form of the title) of no more than 40 characters. Titles should be concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems, so they should not contain abbreviations and formulae. Abstracts should be concise and factual, which state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors. You should take care to ensure that the information is correct so that links to referenced articles can be made successfully. Material which is really a footnote to the text should not be included in the reference list, which should contain only references to bibliographic data. Avoid any references that are not fully cited in the paper.
Equations should be centered with the number placed in parentheses at the right margin. Figures must be of high resolution and high contrast.
References should be listed alphabetically, typed and punctuated according to the following examples:
Mathematical Biosciences and Engineering is abbreviated as Math Biosci Eng. For journal abbreviations used in bibliographies, consult Web of Science's journal title abbreviations at http://images.webofknowledge.com/WOK46/help/WOS/A_abrvjt.html
Manuscripts typeset using AmS-LaTeX (amsart) can move much more quickly through the production process, hence are strongly recommended to authors for preparing their manuscripts.
Author(s) of an accepted manuscript MUST prepare their manuscript using AIMS template, comforming to the margin requirements and provide high resolution figures (if any) to ensure speedy quality production. Authors must sign and return the copyright agreement form in the following preference order: scanned file, surface mail, or fax to 417-889-0336.
We will contact you by e-mail when the PDF proof of your article is ready. When your corrected manuscript proof is received by AIMS it is considered to be in its final form.
