The Company of Biologists publishes five specialist peer-reviewed journals: Development, Journal of Cell Science, Journal of Experimental Biology, Disease Models & Mechanisms (open access) and Biology Open (open access).  Read about our three hybrid journals here.

Why Development?

Development is a leading primary research journal covering the field of developmental biology. It is known for publishing influential papers, and for its team of expert academic editors. In 2009, it was designated one of the 100 most influential journals of the past 100 years by the SLA BioMedical & Life Sciences Division. It is committed to publishing cutting-edge reviews and research articles 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.
Development is read by scientists at all levels and from a broad field of expertise – including plant and animal biologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, cell biologists, paediatricians, neurologists, embryologists and stem cell scientists.

Why Journal of Cell Science?

JCS publishes cutting-edge science, encompassing all aspects of cell biology, including recently emerging fields. It has a strong reputation for high-quality science and is all about new thinking and scientific excellence in cell biology. Each issue includes research articles, interviews, and reviews and posters commissioned from experts in particular fields.

JCS is of key interest to a broad spectrum of scientists, including cell biologists, developmental biologists, molecular biologists, plant biologists and neuroscientists.
The journal is led by Editors who are research-active academics and leaders in their respective fields. The single most important criterion for acceptance for JCS is scientific excellence. Articles must pose and test a significant hypothesis that will provide novel perspectives and approaches to understanding cell biology, and will stimulate the interest of the broad readership of the journal.

Why Journal of Experimental Biology?

Journal of Experimental Biology (JEB) is the leading primary research journal in comparative physiology and publishes 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.
JEB is listed as one of the top 100 most influential journals in biology and medicine by the SLA BioMedical & Life Sciences Division.

Besides the research content of the journal, JEB publishes timely reviews, commentaries, news and correspondence.
JEB is read by a broad interdisciplinary group of scientists who study molecular, cellular and organismal physiology in an evolutionarily and environmentally based context including systemic, cellular and molecular physiologists, neuroscientists, transport physiologists, biomechanists and biochemists.
