Call for Papers: a Special Collection focused on Rat Models of Disease

Posted by , on 3 December 2015

Disease Models & Mechanisms invites you to submit original research for consideration for an upcoming Special Collection named Spotlight on Rat: Translational Impact scheduled for publication in autumn 2016. This ongoing collection* will focus on translational advances made using Rat as a model organism, including insights into disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets, new resources and technologies, and drug discovery and development.

The issue will be guest edited by Tim Aitman (University of Edinburgh, UK)

We invite you to showcase your breakthrough Rat research in this Special Collection. Submissions should describe original research in the form of a Research or Resource article. Please read the author guidelines for information on preparing a manuscript for DMM, and submit your manuscript via our online submission system. Please highlight that your submission is to be considered for the Special Collection in your cover letter. For rapid feedback on the suitability of a paper for inclusion in the Special Collection, please send us a presubmission enquiry. The Collection will also contain invited Review articles covering topics of broad interest to the Rat community and interviews with leading scientists in the field. The launch issue of the Special Collection will be widely marketed and will be distributed at relevant conferences worldwide, providing prominent exposure for your work.

Submission deadline: 1st March 2016

Key benefits of publishing in DMM include:

  • High visibility and impact (2014 Impact Factor 5)
  • Open Access (CC-BY licence) and PMC deposition
  • Rapid peer review and publication
  • Indexed in Medline, ISI and Scopus
  • Not-for-profit publisher

*Please note that not all papers accepted for publication after peer review will be included in the launch issue for the Special Collection; some will be published in later issues and added to the compiled online Special Collection. Contact us for further details.
