Biomedical Physics & Engineering Express

Published by the Institute of Physics Publishing Ltd endorsed by IPEM

A broad, inclusive, rapid review journal devoted to publishing new research in all areas of biomedical engineering, biophysics and medical physics, with a special emphasis on interdisciplinary work between these fields.


Biomedical Physics & Engineering Express (BPEX) is an inclusive, international, multidisciplinary journal devoted to publishing new research on any application of physics and/or engineering in medicine and/or biology.

Characterized by a broad geographical coverage and a fast-track peer-review process, relevant topics include all aspects of biophysics, medical physics and biomedical engineering. Papers that are almost entirely clinical or biological in their focus are not suitable. The journal has an emphasis on publishing interdisciplinary work and bringing research fields together, encompassing experimental, theoretical and computational work.

Major topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Medical technologies (e.g. sensors, detectors, devices, human-machine interfaces)
  • Biomedical imaging (e.g. microscopy, spectroscopy, pre-clinical and clinical imaging, multiscale imaging, image reconstruction, image analysis, image processing)
  • Medical interventions (e.g. therapy physics, radiation dosimetry, image-guided interventions, thermal medicine)
  • Nanotechnology in biomedicine (e.g. drug delivery, nanoparticles, nanodevices)
  • Biomaterials (e.g. synthesis, characterization and performance, bioengineering and biomanufacturing technologies, in-vitro tissue and disease models, biological interactions)
  • Systems biology (e.g. cellular signalling, metabolism and cellular processes, multiscale modelling, simulations)
  • Physiological measurements (e.g. monitoring and diagnosis, electrophysiology, neurophysiology, time-series analysis)
  • Data Science and Analytics (e.g. artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning methods, image feature extraction, radiomics, computer aided diagnosis)
  • Bioinformatics (e.g. gene and protein expression analysis, cellular organization, structural bioinformatics)
  • Other general topics from biophysics, medical physics and biomedical engineering
