Instructions to Authors
Thank you for your interest in Journal of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine. Note that submission implies that the
content has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere except as a brief abstract in the proceedings of a scientific
meeting on symposium.
Once you have prepared your submission in accordance with the Guidelines, manuscripts should be submitted online at
The submission system will prompt you to use an ORCiD (a unique author identifier) to help distinguish your work from that of
other researchers. Please visit this link "http://www.wileyauthors.com/orcid" to find out more.

We look forward to your submission.
Aims and Scope
Journal of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine publishes rapidly and rigorously peer-reviewed research papers,
reviews, clinical case reports, perspectives, and short communications on topics relevant to the development of therapeutic
approaches which combine stem or progenitor cells, biomaterials and scaffolds, growth factors and other bioactive agents, and
their respective constructs. All papers should deal with research that has a direct or potential impact on the development of
novel clinical approaches for the regeneration or repair of tissues and organs.
The journal is multidisciplinary, covering the combination of the principles of life sciences and engineering in efforts to advance
medicine and clinical strategies. The journal focuses on the use of cells, materials, and biochemical/mechanical factors in the
development of biological functional substitutes that restore, maintain, or improve tissue or organ function. The journal
publishes research on any tissue or organ and covers all key aspects of the field, including the development of new biomaterials
and processing of scaffolds; the use of different types of cells (mainly stem and progenitor cells) and their culture in specific
bioreactors; studies in relevant animal models; and clinical trials in human patients performed under strict regulatory and ethical
frameworks. Manuscripts describing the use of advanced methods for the characterization of engineered tissues are also of
special interest to the journal readership.
Each paper will be evaluated by three independent reviewers. Authors are welcome to submit the names and contact details of
up to three suggested reviewers, using the online system, however please note that the Editors are not obliged to use the suggested
reviewers. Only those contributions that the Editor-in-Chief or the relevant Associate Editor consi ders to be of sufficient interest
will be sent out for peer review. The criteria for this are based on the aims and scope of the journal, its high quality standards,
the originality and potential outcomes of the work, and its significance to the multi disciplinary research fields related to
Journal of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.
Submission of a manuscript will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for
publication elsewhere at the same time. The first named author is responsible for ensuring that all authors have read and
approved the contents of the manuscript, and this should be confirmed in the covering letter to be signed by the senior author.
File types. Preferred formats for the text and tables of your manuscript are .doc, .rtf. Figures must be provided in PDF or .eps format.
Upon acceptance, authors must supply the following immediately:
• If the manuscript contains extracts, including illustrations, from other copyright works (including material from on-line or
internet sources) it is the author’s responsibility to obtain written permission from the owners of the publishing rights to
reproduce such extracts using the Wiley Permission Request Form.
• For human clinical studies, written consent must be obtained from the patient, legal guardian or executor for publication of
any detail or photograph that might identify an individual. Evidence of such consent must be submitted.
• If relevant, a Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form should be completed by each author.
Copies of these forms are available from the journal website; and may also be obtained from the journal publisher.
Ethics. Human investigation and animal experiments must have local ethics committee approval. Articles will not be published
if appropriate ethical standards have not been met.
Manuscript Style. The language of the journal is English. Please ensure that your manuscript has been checked by a native
English speaker, or an English language service, if there is concern for grammatical or other errors. All sub missions must have a
title, be double-line spaced with type no smaller than 12 point, and have a margin of 3cm all round. Tables must be on separate
pages after the reference list, and not be incorporated into the main text. Figures should be uploaded as separate image files.
• The title page must list the full title, short title of up to 70 characters and names and affiliations of all authors. Give the full
address, including email, telephone and fax, of the author who is the senior author due to check the proofs.
• Include the name(s) of any sponsor(s) of the research contained in the paper, along with grant number(s) if applicable.
• Supply an abstract of up to 250 words for all articles. An abstract should be a concise summary of the whole paper, not just
conclusions, and it must be understandable without reference to the rest of the paper. It should contain no citation to
any other published work.
• Include up to six keywords that describe your paper for indexing purposes.
• Number the sections and sub-sections of papers, in the style: 1. Introduction, 2. Materials and Methods, 2.1 Scaffold
Preparation, 2.2 Cell Sources… 3. Results and Discussion, etc.
• A concise introduction is required of the present state-of-the-art, the background to the subject, its significance and its
relationship to earlier works, with well selected and relevant references.
• Materials and methods should be presented with clarity and detail in order to allow others to reproduce the work. State
the original and important findings in the results. Illustrate these with figures or tables where necessary but keep these to
• Results and discussion may be combined as one section. Discuss the principal conclusions drawn from the results and their
• Use Chemical Abstracts nomenclature for chemical names and structures. Use proper or proprietary names with caution.
Common acronyms for biomedical names are acceptable but define all others when first mentioned. Define abbreviations
when first mentioned and do not use in the title or abstract. Define non-standard units.
