IEEE Reviews in Biomedical Engineering

Comprehensive reviews of engineering methodologies and applicationsR-BME will provide comprehensive reviews of engineering methodologies being developed at the frontiers of biomedical engineering. Sections will include:

  • Methodological Reviews: critical reviews of current methods important in biomedical engineering, understood in their most general sense.
  • Clinical Application Reviews: critical reviews of methods applied to a current clinical problems, where biomedical technology is playing a crucial role.
  • In the Spotlight: a special column that will survey the most important advances in the EMBS areas within the last year. The column will highlight new directions, goals achieved, unexpected difficulties, competing techniques, translations to successful products, new clinical applications, and similar key advances that are important to our readership.


The first issue is composed of invited papers only, and is in process. Authors who intend to submit manuscripts should do so through Manuscript Central.

The IEEE Reviews in Biomedical Engineering reviews the state-of-the-art and trends in the emerging field of biomedical engineering. This includes scholarly works, ranging from historic and modern development in biomedical engineering to the life sciences and medicine enabled by technologies covered by the various IEEE societies.
