Aims & Scope of the Journal

Soft Robotics (SoRo) is the #1-ranked 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 modeling
Flexible and transient electronics
Soft actuators and sensors
Control and simulation of highly deformable structures
Biomechanics and control of soft animals and tissues
Biohybrid devices and living machines
Design and fabrication of conformable machines
