Development is a leading primary research journal covering the field of developmental biology. With its long and prestigious history and its team of expert academic editors, Development is committed to publishing cutting-edge research across the spectrum of animal and plant developmental biology.
Over recent years, Development has expanded its focus to incorporate the stem cell and regeneration fields, with the aim of underscoring the close links between these growing communities and more traditional developmental biology.
News from Development
We are delighted to announce our first cohort of Pathway to Independence (PI) fellows. Over the course of the next year, we will be working with this talented set of postdocs as they transition to independence, helping them navigate the job market and beginning to build a community of junior investigators.
We welcome submissions for our upcoming special issue, led by Academic Editor Cassandra Extavour working alongside Guest Editors Liam Dolan and Karen Sears.
Our academic and in-house editors regularly attend conferences in the fields of developmental and stem cell biology, and would be delighted to meet readers, (potential) authors and reviewers at these events. You can find a list of the conferences that we’ll be attending here.
Open Access publishing options
Development recognises the benefits of Open Access publishing and as one of the very first Transformative Journals we offer several publishing options to all of our authors, whatever their funder or financial status.
The Forest of Biologists
As part of a new biodiversity initiative from The Company of Biologists, Development now plants a native tree in a UK forest for each published Research and Review article. We are also funding the restoration and preservation of ancient woodland and dedicating these trees to our peer reviewers. All of these trees are represented together in a virtual forest. Read the Editorial to find out more about the launch of this initiative.
In Issue 13, Alexis Villars, Gaëlle Letort, Léo Valon and Romain Levayer propose a new methodology based on deep learning that allows automatic detection of cellular events and their precise xyt localisation on live fluorescent imaging movies without segmentation.
