Focus and Scope

Materials and Biomaterials Science provides a unique forum for the discussion of novel processing, applications and theoretical studies of functional materials and biomaterials for (opto)electronics, sensors, detectors, biotechnology and green energy. This journal encompasses insights into the chemistry, biology and materials science underpinning (bio) materials research, new concepts in biomaterials design, and using materials to answer fundamental questions.

Materials and Biomaterials Science is an international peer-reviewed scholarly Open Access journal published by Kasdi Merbah University of Ouargla (Algeria).
