The Journal of Biomechanics publishes reports of original and substantial findings using the principles of mechanics to explore biological problems. Analytical, as well as experimental papers may be submitted, and the journal accepts original articles, surveys and perspective articles (usually by Editorial invitation only), book reviews and letters to the Editor. The criteria for acceptance of manuscripts include excellence, novelty, significance, clarity, conciseness and interest to the readership.
Understanding the iliotibial band
For many people, it's the source of a nagging—and painful—injury, but for Carolyn Eng, the IT band is an intriguing mystery, one she may be close to solving.
3-D models help researchers study biomechanics behind amazing ant strength
A recent study into the biomechanics of the necks of ants – a common insect that can amazingly lift objects many times heavier than its own body – might unlock one of nature's little mysteries and, quite possibly, open ...
With their amazing necks, ants don't need 'high hopes' to do heavy lifting
High hopes may help move a rubber tree plant (as the old song goes), but the real secret to the ant's legendary strength may lie in its tiny neck joint.
Important step forward for gait analysis of horses
Horses who develop a limp are one of the major sources of frustration for horse owners as well as vets. The same applies for Wobblers disease (ataxia) where growth abnormalities or articular process joint osteoarthritis put ...
