PubMed provides access to millions of citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. This version is customized for USC users to find the full-text of articles.
Open-i searches for images in all Open Access articles indexed in PubMed Central. Search over 600,000 copyright compliant images by keyword, topic, or image to find relevant or visually similar images.
Optical Society of America (OSA)'s online library for OSA flagship journals and for partnered and co-published journals. It contains recent proceedings from OSA and has a variety of simple and advanced search and browse features for locating articles. Good for users in engineering and physics science fields.
Life sciences and biomedical research database covering pre-clinical and experimental research, methods and instrumentation, animal studies, and more. This is useful when searching for studies related to specific organism. There is an option to search with organism names.
Here are some of the academic journals that USC Libraries subscribes to that are related to biomedical engineering:
Annals of Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary, international journal which presents original and review articles in the major fields of bioengineering and biomedical engineering. A major aim of bioengineering is to provide integrated approaches to the solutions of biological and biomedical problems. The philosophy is to provide engineering approaches to enhance the power of the scientific method, and to maintain a balance between experimental observation and quantitative analyses. While the development of theory and of mathematical models is strongly endorsed, these should be evaluated wherever possible using biological data from experiments that test specific hypotheses. This is the official journal of the Biomedical Engineering Society.
The Annual Review of Biomedical Engineering, in publication since 1999, covers the significant developments in the broad field of biomedical engineering, including biomechanics, biomaterials, computational genomics and proteomics, tissue engineering, biomonitoring, health care engineering, drug delivery bioelectrical engineering, biochemical engineering, and biomedical imaging topics.
The primary aim of Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering (CMBBE) is to provide a means of communicating the advances being made in the area of computational biomechanics and biomedical engineering with the emphasis being placed on biomechanics. High quality research articles form the main body of the journal. These papers will focus on state-of-the-art computational aspects of biomechanics and simulation in both engineering and clinical scenarios. Accepted submissions will be of high scientific value in providing a significant contribution and impact on computational biomechanics. They should also expand upon novel and innovative research where the methods, analysis and conclusions are robust and of the highest standard.
Launched in January 2017, Nature Biomedical Engineering is an online-only monthly journal publishing original research, reviews and commentary of high significance to the biomedical engineering community, including bench scientists interested in devising materials, methods, technologies or therapies to understand or combat disease, engineers designing or optimizing medical devices and procedures, and clinicians leveraging research outputs in biomedical engineering to assess patient health or deliver therapy across a variety of clinical settings and healthcare contexts.

The Alfred E. Mann Institute for Biomedical Engineering (AMI-USC) was established at the University of Southern California in 1998. Its mission is to help bridge the gap between biomedical innovation and the creation of commercially successful medical products to improve and save lives. The University of Southern California was selected because it is one of a small number of premier research institutions on which the nation depends for a steady stream of new knowledge, art, and technology. USC has nearly $700 million in annual research expenditures and has the largest graduate program in science, engineering, and health of all private research universities.
The BMSR is dedicated to the advancement of the state-of-the-art in biomedical systems modeling and simulation through Core and Collaborative Research projects, as well as the dissemination of this knowledge and related software through Service, Training and Dissemination activities.
