Journal of Cell Science is pleased to welcome submissions for consideration for an upcoming Special Issue on 3D Cell Biology. We have a limited understanding of cells within their natural context of tissues and organs, but recent advances in imaging techniques, organoids and other more complex systems are making it easier for cell biology research to be conducted in more complex and physiologically relevant settings. Ultimately, we hope to achieve a sophisticated molecular understanding of how cells build organs during development and corrupt their structure and function during disease processes. Journal of Cell Science is a natural home for the research that will help to address these fundamental biological questions.
We invite you to showcase your breakthrough research on all aspects of 3D Cell Biology in this Special Issue, which is scheduled for publication in mid 2016 and will be widely marketed and distributed at relevant conferences worldwide. The articles within this issue will receive extensive exposure to a broad audience of cell biologists.
The issue will be guest edited by Andrew Ewald (Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, USA), who is also the Journal of Cell Science Guest Editor and will handle all 3D cell biology papers submitted to the journal for one year, from August 2015.
We encourage submissions of Research Articles and Short Reports, and Tools & Techniques papers. Articles must be received by January 16th, 2016 for consideration for the Special Issue. Please refer to our author guidelines for information on preparing your manuscript for Journal of Cell Science, and submit your manuscript via our online submission system. Please highlight that your submission is to be considered for the Special Issue in your cover letter. For rapid feedback on the potential suitability of an article for this Special Issue, please submit a presubmission enquiry.
