The Company of Biologists for Development, Journal of Cell Science and The Journal of Experimental Biology and its Open Access Journals

The Company of Biologists is a not-for-profit publishing organisation dedicated to supporting and inspiring the biological community. We are run by distinguished practicing scientists. We exist to profit science, not shareholders. We inspire new thinking and support the worldwide community of biologists.

We publish five specialist peer-reviewed journals: Development, Journal of Cell Science, Journal of Experimental Biology, Disease Models & Mechanisms and Biology Open. Furthermore, we facilitate scientific meetings, provide travel grants for researchers and support research societies. We ensure the profits from the hard work of scientists inspires future scientific discovery and develops the next generation.

• Development

Cutting-edge research from across the spectrum of animal and plant development and with a clear focus on stem cells, Development is the leading community journal in developmental biology. As well as primary research, it publishes a diverse array of review and hypothesis articles from across the field. Development strives to foster and support the members and the research of the developmental community.

• Journal of Cell Science

Research and reviews that cover the complete range of topics in cell biology. Novel perspectives and approaches to understanding the field. Articles that challenge understanding and stimulate interest. Journal of Cell Science is all about new thinking and scientific excellence in cell biology.

• Journal of Experimental Biology

The leading journal in comparative animal physiology. Journal of Experimental Biology focuses on the form and function of living organisms at all levels of biological organisation – from the molecular and subcellular to the integrated whole animal. Authors and readers reflect a broad interdisciplinary group of scientists who study molecular, cellular and organismal physiology in an evolutionary and environmental context.

• Disease Models & Mechanisms – Open Access

Original research that uses model systems to better understand, diagnose and treat human disease. Disease Models & Mechanisms promotes rigorous preclinical analysis to provide models and mechanisms that will be useful for future drug development. Papers are of interest to experts in both clinical medicine and basic science research.

• Biology Open – Open Access

Peer reviewed original research across all aspects of the biological sciences, including cell science, developmental biology and comparative physiology. Biology Open aims to provide rapid publication for scientifically sound observations and valid conclusions in these allied fields.
