Biomedicine & Prevention is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in several areas of the life sciences. The journal’s Editorial Board covers several subject areas mainly focusing on prevention and health promotion. Prevention is covered not as an exclusive health competence discipline but in a holistic way, including environmental sciences, engineering, physics, legal implications and legislation.
Biomedicine and Prevention is strongly engaged in creating a common environment to facilitate the convergence of life sciences, physics and engineering in solving problems related to prevention.
Professor Leonardo Palombi, Head of the Biomedicine and Prevention Department of the Rome University of Tor Vergata founded Biomedicine & Prevention in 2015. The entire Department is involved in the project, contributing to the growth of knowledge in prevention sciences tailored to the many specific fields of competenceof participating researchers. In this sense, the policy of the Journal is oriented to privilege the scientific vision of the Department while economic profit is not the primary goal. For this reason Biomedicine and Prevention offers low cost publications rates, in comparison to other open access journals.
