About the book

Mechanobiology represents a special coupling between biology and mechanical engineering. It describes the way in which biological cells detect, respond, and react to the actions of their mechanical operating environment. Biological cells are not only able to detect biochemical signals but also mechanical factors such as stress, geometry, and matrix elasticity. Recent advances in this field have improved our understanding of how mechanical inputs orchestrate the cellular dynamic behavior and tissue regeneration of living systems. Research in mechanobiology also explains how deregulation of mechanical parameters can cause or induce disease. It is a very complex multidisciplinary research discipline that requires many skills and tools, both numerical and experimental.


This book will mainly cover work related to: (i) cells mechanosensing and mechanotransduction mechanisms (ii) computational and experimental techniques in mechanobiology, (iii) mathematical mechanobiological models of bone remodeling, (iv) bone mechano-transduction, (v) innovative tools for mechanobiology and the role of medical imaging in this field and (vi) any other proposals related to innovations, clinical application and perspectives of mechanobiology.

Publishing process

Date completed: July 2nd 2020

Applications to edit the book are assessed and a suitable editor is selected, at which point the process begins.

Chapter proposals submitted and reviewed

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: September 21st 2020

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: December 10th 2020

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: February 8th 2021

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
