Developmental Biology

PLACENTA

Placenta publishes high-quality original articles and invited topical reviews on all aspects of human and animal placentation, and the interactions between the mother, the placenta and fetal development. Topics covered include evolution, development, genetics and epigenetics, stem cells, metabolism, transport, immunology, pathology, pharmacology, cell and molecular biology, and developmental programming.

DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOBIOLOGY

evelopmental Psychobiology is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research papers from the disciplines of psychology, biology, neuroscience, and medicine that contribute to an understanding of behavior development. Research that focuses on development in the embryo/fetus, neonate, juvenile, or adult animal and multidisciplinary research that relates behavioral development to anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, genetics, or evolution is appropriate.

DEVELOPMENTAL NEUROSCIENCE

Developmental Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary journal publishing papers covering all stages of invertebrate, vertebrate and human brain development. Emphasis is placed on publishing fundamental as well as translational studies that contribute to our understanding of mechanisms of normal development as well as genetic and environmental causes of abnormal brain development. The journal thus provides valuable information for both physicians and biologists.

DEVELOPMENTAL NEUROBIOLOGY

Developmental Neurobiology publishes original research articles and critical review papers on all aspects of nervous system development and aging, including plasticity and the ontogeny of behavior, and regeneration and repair as well as changes brought about by disease. The general aim of the journal is to be the forum of choice for the broad presentation and discussion of the mechanisms underlying the dynamic nature of the structural and functional properties of the nervous system.

CELLS TISSUES ORGANS

Cells Tissues Organs aims at bridging the gap between cell biology and developmental biology and the emerging fields of regenerative medicine (stem cell biology, tissue engineering, artificial organs, in vitro systems and transplantation biology). CTO offers a rapid and fair peer-review and exquisite reproduction quality. Special topic issues, entire issues of the journal devoted to a single research topic within the range of interests of the journal, are published at irregular intervals.

SEMINARS IN CELL & DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY

Seminars in Cell and Developmental Biology is a review journal dedicated to keeping scientists informed of developments in the field of molecular cell and developmental biology. Each issue is thematic, devoted to an important topic of interest to cell and developmental biologists, focusing on the latest advances and their specific implications. Every issue is edited by a guest editor, an internationally acknowledged expert in the field, and contains authoritative invited reviews on different aspects of the subject area.

REPRODUCTION

Reproduction is the official journal of the Society of Reproduction and Fertility (SRF). It was formed in 2001 when the Society merged its two journals, the Journal of Reproduction and Fertility and Reviews of Reproduction. Reproduction publishes original research articles and topical reviews on the subject of reproductive and developmental biology, and reproductive medicine. The journal will consider publication of high-quality meta-analyses; these should be submitted to the research papers category.

GENES & DEVELOPMENT

Genes & Development publishes high-quality research papers of broad general interest and biological significance in the areas of molecular biology, molecular genetics, and related fields. In addition to Review Articles and Perspectives, Genes & Development publishes three research formats—Research papers, short Research Communications, and Resource/Methodology papers.
