New journal Biotribology invites you to submit your paper. The field of biotribology embraces a range of disciplines including materials science, chemistry, physics, biology, ergonomics and corrosion science.

Many aspects of our daily life are governed by tribology mechanisms; one of the most exciting areas of research in this field is biotribology which focuses on the tribology mechanisms occurring in living organisms and at the interface between biological and artificial surfaces.

Biotribology encompasses a wide range of disciplines; thus research papers appear in a range of journals outside the normal sphere of tribology. The Editors aim is to develop a journal which provides a focus for this new research on a universal platform.

The scope of Biotribology journal includes all aspects of the tribology of biointerfaces. Subject areas include:

• Natural and artificial articular joints
• Prostheses and biological implants
• Biomimetics and biomaterials
• Soft matter and skin tribology
• Dental tribology and oral processing
• Haptics and sports tribology
• Personal care and topically applied products
• Ocular tribology

The topic of research should include a biological surface.
