It is the only academic journal openly published in China that actively reflects the basic researches and application results in medical biomechanics, aiming at promoting international academic exchanges and mutual understanding and cooperation of medicine, science, and engineering disciplines. The journal mainly publishes research papers on medical biomechanics, including solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, rheology, and sports biomechanics. The journal is assesses as China Scientific and Technical Core Periodical” by China Scientific & Technical Papers and Citations. It has been indexed by Chinese Academic Journal Comprehensive Evaluation Database (CAJCED), Chinese Medical Current Contents (CMCC), Chinese Journal Full-text Database (CJFD), Chinese Core Journal Database (Selection), the United States "Cambridge Scientific Abstracts" (CSA), the Polish "Index Copernicus" (IC), the Russian "Abstract Journal" (AJ), the United States "Chemical Abstracts" (CA), etc. In 2012, the journal was included in 2011 edition of “Guide to the Core Journals of China” by Peking University Library.
