Hybrid printing of mechanically and biologically improved constructs for cartilage tissue engineering applications
The published version of the paper ‘Hybrid printing of mechanically and biologically improved constructs for cartilage tissue engineering applications’ (Xu et al 2013 Biofabrication 5 015001) will be freely available online from 22 November. It will be available at http://iopscience.iop.org/1758-5090/5/1/015001.

Biofabrication
Biofabrication is a journal focusing on using cells, proteins, biomaterials and/or other bioactive elements as building blocks to fabricate advanced biological models, medical therapeutic products and non-medical biological systems.

IOP Publishing
IOP Publishing provides publications through which leading-edge scientific research is distributed worldwide.  IOP Publishing is central to the Institute of Physics (IOP), a not-for-profit society.  Any financial surplus earned by IOP Publishing goes to support science through the activities of IOP. Beyond our traditional journals programme, we make high-value scientific information easily accessible through an ever-evolving portfolio of community websites, magazines, conference proceedings and a multitude of electronic services.  Focused on making the most of new technologies, we’re continually improving our electronic interfaces to make it easier for researchers to find exactly what they need, when they need it, in the format that suits them best.
