There have been several notable events here at Biomicrofluidics in the past few months.
First up, congratulations are in order for Leslie Yeo, our newest editor. Dr. Yeo is at Monash University in Victoria, Australia, and he brings with him a lot of enthusiasm and great ideas for moving BMF forward. Take a look at Dr. Yeo's editorial for more info.
Speaking of new editorial members, the journal is also welcoming James Friend as an Associate Editor (both Drs. Friend and Yeo are part of the Micro/NanoPhysics Research Laboratory). Dr. Friend's appointment is especially newsworthy because he is helping the journal with its newest topical section: "Fabrication and Laboratory Methods." It is hoped that this section will provide a strong reference point for researchers interested in developing lab-on-a-chip or related technologies.
Another piece of good news: the first two issues of Volume 3 has published a great quantity of high quality articles from the 2009 Conference on Advances In Microfluidics and Nanofluidics, which was held at the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology last January. And in case it slipped your mind you can scroll downor click hereto listen to and read several of the posters presented at that meeting. Thanks to the efforts of BMF's editorsHsueh-Chia Chang and Leslie YeoBiomicrofluidics is publishing more high quality papers than ever before. Just try to stop yourself from reading "Electrowetting on a lotus leaf" or "Rapid on-chip genetic detection microfluidic platform for real world applications."
Finally, there have been a few changes to the website. There is now a gallery of all videos contained in published articles since the journal's inception. It may also interest those with a desire for updates that don't exceed 140 characters that AIP Publishing is now on Twitter. With each tweet, BMF has seen a notable increase in traffic.
Once again proving that the journal's content is amazing.
