IDRM PI and Associate Professor Mathilda Mommersteeg of the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics is editing a special issue of Developmental Dynamics on Mechanisms of Cardiovascular Development to be published in late 2023. Her co-editor is Dr Ben Hogan from the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Australia. The call for papers is now open!
Developmental Dynamics publishes mechanistic papers of central importance to the developmental biology/evolution community. For this special issue, mechanistic studies of cardinal events of cardiovascular development, such as angiogenesis, vasculogenesis, lymphogenesis, and cardiac development, are welcomed, as are studies providing insight into developmental disease, tissue repair and regeneration, and evolution. All types of original articles will be considered, including Research Articles, Disease Connections, Patterns & Phenotypes and Techniques.
Reviews and Critical Commentaries are also being invited from leaders in the field. To avoid overlap with these, and to ensure appropriate content, the Special Projects Editor Gary C. Schoenwolf is asking for any ideas for these types of articles to be sent (prior to preparation and submission) to .
For inclusion in the special issue, papers should be submitted by 15 July 2022, to allow adequate time for standard peer review and revision. Papers accepted for the special issue are immediately free access, allowing your work to be widely read throughout the scientific community. There are no page or illustration charges.
Access to author guidelines can be found under the “Contribute” button on the left side of the Developmental Dynamics home page.
