Bianciardi Giorgio (Founding Editor in Chief)

University of Siena

Fractal Geometry and Nonlinear Analysis in Medicine and Biology is a new, fully peer-reviewed, bimonthly open access, international scholarly journal launched by OAText. Fractal Geometry and Nonlinear Analysis in Medicine and Biology (FGNAMB) has a mission to help researchers publish their work for global audience and discover new and exciting connections.

FGNAMB is an interdisciplinary network of scientists to disseminate the use of Fractal Geometry and Nonlinear Analysis in Medicine and Biology, with particular regards towards human pathology.

Clinicians, Pathologists, Biologists, and Engineers are invited to present advancements of knowledge in the field of nonlinearity and its application to the study of life, in particular to human body, in healthy and diseases, also in order to develop software’s and public computer-aided resources.

A Journal where free tools become available to the scientist to be applied and tested, discussed and improved with the aim to disseminate quantitative nonlinear approaches, mathematical tools and computer-aided methodologies, also in order to determine the efficacy of using fractal geometry and nonlinear analysis to assist in diagnosis and prognosis.

FGNAMB considers original research articles, review articles, editorial, case studies, meta-analysis studies, viewpoint papers and short communications on all the aspects of applications of Fractal Geometry and Nonlinear Analysis in the fields of Pathology and Biology. Submissions are handled by Editor-in-Chief and a team of Editorial Board.

All articles published in FGNAMB are free of charge, no publication fee for authors and readers. All articles published in FGNAMB are open access. The articles can be accessed online immediately on their publication. We are committed to providing authors with a rapid, fair, and constructive review process, with a goal of giving the majority of first decisions within four weeks.

The authors retain the copyright of all their work published in FGNAMB. All articles published in FGNAMB are open access and are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License, which means the articles are universally and freely available online for anyone to download and adapt their work, provided proper attribution is given.

Fractal Geometry and Nonlinear Analysis in Medicine and Biology (FGNAMB) is now open for submissions.  We've waived the article publishing charges, no any fee for Author(s). You can submit your manuscript to:  submissions@ai-zheng.info alternatively to: editor.fgnamb@ai-zheng.info

Please, follow the Instructions for Authors. In the cover letter add the name and e-mail address of 5 proposed reviewers (we can choose them or not).
