Aims & Scope of the Journal

Soft Robotics (SoRo) is the leading
robotics journal, publishing world-class peer-reviewed research on the
emerging technologies and developments of soft and deformable robots,
including coverage of flexible electronics, materials science, computer
science, and biomechanics. The Journal breaks new ground as the first to
answer the urgent need for research on robotic technology that can
safely interact with living systems and function in complex natural or
human-built environments.
Multidisciplinary in scope, SoRo combines
advances in biomedical engineering, biomechanics, mathematical modeling,
biopolymer chemistry, computer science, and tissue engineering to
provide comprehensive coverage of new approaches to constructing devices
that can undergo dramatic changes in shape and size in order to adapt
to various environments. This new technology delivers vital applications
for a variety of purposes, including surgery, assistive healthcare
devices, search and rescue in emergency situations, space instrument
repair, mine detection, and more.Soft Robotics (SoRo) coverage includes:
Soft material creation, characterization, and modelingFlexible and transient electronicsSoft actuators and sensorsControl and simulation of highly deformable structuresBiomechanics and control of soft animals and tissuesBiohybrid devices and living machinesDesign and fabrication of conformable machines
