Aims and Scope
The Journal of Biorheology is an international journal covering the science and application of the deformation and flow properties of biological materials, including food materials. The aim of the journal is to provide a peer-reviewed forum for the publication of original papers and authoritative review papers dealing with the dynamics of physiological processes at all levels of organization, from organ to the molecular level. The scope of the journal covers the basic science and its applications in the broad field of biorheology: the rheology of macromolecules, cell rheology, tissue and organ rheology, and food rheology. The Journal of Biorheology accepts original articles, brief communications, and review articles. The editors encourage the submission of biorheological analysis of pathological processes and their clinical implications, including basic clinical research on hemodynamics and hemorheology. Also highly welcome are translational clinical studies and scientific research between the fields of engineering and medicine.

3 Instructions for Authors

Legal requirements
Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities-tacitly or explicitly-at the institute here the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.

Permissions
Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published else-where are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from authors.

Authorship
Membership in the Japanese Society of Biorheology is not a prerequisite for submission of research
articles. However, at least one of authors must be a member of the Society.

Acceptance of papers
Papers will be reviewed by members of the Editorial Committee or reviewers who are selected for their competence in the subject matter of the submitted paper. Acceptance of the submitted paper will depend on scientific merit and suitability for the journal. The revised paper must be submitted within 2 months of acceptance.

Manuscript preparation
Types of papers and review articles.

The following two types of papers and review articles are accepted. Research that has been presented at an annual meeting of the Japanese Society of Biorheology should be mentioned on the title page.

Original articles
Full papers are formal presentations of unpublished original research on biorheology and closely related fields. The paper should not exceed 4400 words. A word count of 4400 is approximately equivalent to 20 manuscript pages (A4, double-spaced with 10.5-point font, 18 lines/page). In addi-tion, 6 to 8 figures and/or tables can be included. The manuscript should contain an abstract (not more than 200 words), references, and legends for figures, if any. Specify "Original article" in the upper left of the title page of the manuscript.

Brief communications
Brief communications are short in length but should contain new findings of scientifically valuable results. Brief Communications can include 1) a technical report of unique methodologies or specifi-cations of particular importance and/or current interest, 2) a short communication meriting immedi-ate publication of expedited investigations and/or experiments, 3) a case report describing novel findings and/or didactic experiences in clinical biorheology mainly focused on blood-flow physiol-ogy or abnormalities in any organs, such as the brain, heart, liver, great vessels, small vessels and capillaries. The paper should not exceed 2200 words. A word count of 2200 is approximately equivalent to 10 manuscript pages. In addition, 3 to 4 figures and/or tables can be included. The manuscript should contain an abstract (not more than 100 words), references, and legends for figures, if any. Specify "Brief communication" in the upper left margin of the title page of the manuscript.

Review articles
Review articles on a specified research field of biorheology and its applications are normally invited
contributions, but suitable papers may be submitted for this purpose. The paper will be reviewed by
members of the Editorial Committee who are selected for their competence in the subject matter of the review article. The paper should not exceed 5500 words. A word count of 5500 is approximately
equivalent to 25 manuscript pages. In addition, 8 to 10 figure and/or tables can be included. The manuscript should contain an abstract (not more than 200 words), references, and legends for figures, if any. Specify "Review article" in the upper left margin of the title page of the paper.

Title page
The title page should include:
- The name(s) of the author(s)
- A concise and informative title
- The affiliation(s) and address(es) of the author(s)
- The e-mail address, telephone, and fax numbers of the corresponding author

Abstract
Please provide an abstract according to the number of words described in the above section, "Types of papers and review articles". The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations. Any references that are cited must be given in adequate form [e.g., "as reported by Smith (JAMA 352:24-28, 2004)"] to guide a reader without access to the article's reference list.

Keywords
Please provide 4 to 6 Original articles which can be used for indexing purposes.

Text
Text formatting
For submission in Word
o Use a normal, plain font (e.g., 10.5- to 12-point Times Roman) for text.
o Use the automatic page-numbering function to number the pages.
o Do not use field functions.
o Use tab stops or other commands for indents, not the space bar.
o Use the table function, not spreadsheets, to make tables.
Use the equation editor or MathType for equations.
Note: If you use Word 2007, do not create the equations with the default equation editor but use
MathType instead.

Heading levels, numbering
Please use the decimal system of headings with no more than three levels.

Abbreviations and acronyms
Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter.

SI units, numbers
Always use internationally accepted signs and symbols for units, i.e., SI units.

Terminology
Genus and species names should be in italics. The common names of animals should not be capital-ized. Generic names of drugs and pesticides are preferred; if trade names are used, the generic name should be given at first mention.

Equations
Please use standard mathematical notations for formulae, symbols etc.:
o Italic for single letters that denote mathematical constants, variables, and unknown quantities
o Roman/upright for numerals, operators, and punctuation, and commonly defined functions or
abbreviations, e.g., cos, det, e or exp, lim, log, max, min, sin, tan, d (for derivative)
o Bold for vectors, tensors, and matrices.
Footnotes
Footnotes on the title page are not given reference symbols. Footnotes to the text are numbered con-secutively

Acknowledgments
Acknowledgments of individuals, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the
reference list. The names of funding organizations should be written in full.

Ethical standards
Please include at the end of the acknowledgments a declaration that the experiments comply with the
current laws of the country in which they were performed

References
The list of references should include only works that are cited in the text and that have been pub-lished or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should be men-tioned only in the text, within parentheses. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a ref-erence list.

Citation in Text
Citations in the text should be identified by numbers in square brackets. Some examples:
1. Negotiation research spans many disciplines [3].
2. This result was later contradicted by Becker and Seligman [5].
3. This effect has been widely studied [1-3, 7].
