About Journal of Experimental Biology
Journal of Experimental Biology is the leading primary research journal in comparative physiology.
From its launch in 1923 to the present day, JEB has continued to publish papers on the form and function of living organisms at all levels of biological organisation, from the molecular and subcellular to the integrated whole animal. Besides the research content of the journal, JEB publishes timely Reviews, Commentaries, News and Correspondence.
JEB is a community journal, and authors and readers reflect a broad interdisciplinary group of scientists who study molecular, cellular and organismal physiology in an evolutionary and environmental context.
As well as supporting the experimental biology community through social networking and conferences, JEB supports and hosts an annual symposium. This brings together scientists from different areas to review knowledge and stimulate further research in experimental biology and to encourage cross-fertilization of ideas across areas of specialisation.
JEB strongly believes that research in comparative physiology should be accessible to the lay public as well as practising scientists. It actively encourages interaction with the scientific and lay media through embargoed press releases and by making research content available to journalists in advance of publication.
We offer funding to graduate students and post-docs wishing to make collaborative visits to other labs.
