Bionics and Biomimetics is devoted to the promotion of research through the integration of bioengineering, robotics, prosthetics and biology. Bionics is a term that refers either to the replacement, substitution and even augmentation of living parts and functions with cybernetic ones. In a broader sense, it refers to engineering artificial systems through biological principles and to the development of interactive, adaptive interfaces connecting biological and artificial systems. Biomimetics is the understanding of biology to design novel technologies and/or to develop new methodologies that use new physical, chemical and engineering approaches to study living systems. This interdisciplinary approach that involves bionic implants, artificial senses, bio-hybrid and biomorphic systems, bio-aware and bio-inspired robotics replicating animal locomotion and behaviour, new approaches exploring the physical, chemical and computational nature of biological structure, biophotonics, bio-inspired energy conversion systems, and bionanotechnology opens great new challenges and requires inputs from different disciplines, spanning from both life and physical sciences to many fields of engineering, up to humanities.

Bionics and Biomimetics welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Case Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Bionics and Biomimetics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Bionics and Biomimetics will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Bioengineering and Biotechnology.
