Animal behavior desk reference : a dictionary of animal behavior, ecology, and evolution by Edward M. I certainly appreciate the desire to have the topic of evolution be front and center, but I worry that included as part of a definition of the characteristics of life the author is perpetuating a misconception that organisms, not populations evolve.
Likewise, it claims organic compounds are molecules that contain carbon bounded to other elements. No, carbon dioxide is not an organic compound. Thankfully the present textbook commits neither of these errors. As someone trained in history and philosophy of science, I focused specifically on the section devoted to the process of science. A mere assurance that scientific reasoning at the end of the discussion is more complicated not sufficient.
The connection to theory and the idea that the results will contribute to some larger explanatory base are completely lost when using such examples.
I realize the authors want readers to appreciate that at a fundamental level, scientists are simply systematically using critical reasoning in a way that we all use in all contexts. But there is a world of difference between claiming the type of reasoning we use to figure out why a toaster is not working is the same sort of reasoning scientists use, on the one hand; and what I fear most students will take from this example.
We require that manuscripts specifically address biological relevance and conform to the following guidelines: Expression profiling and gene expression studies must contain supporting functional data.
Studies solely based on analysis of expression by microarray, northern blots, PCR or in situ hybridization that are too descriptive or preliminary would not justify full review. Developmental Biology is pleased to publish classical experimental embryology papers that provide unusual new insights. Experiments using interfering DNA or proteins to address gene function are expected to be highly controlled.
In particular, experiments with Morpholino , RNAi, siRNA or dominant negative constructs are expected to contain very precise controls to address the specificity of the effects observed. Experiments using stem cells must advance our understanding of biological functioning.
Studies using cell culture must show direct in vivo relevance in a developmental context. Resource Papers Resource papers are original research papers which provide important and timely information that will have an impact on the work of developmental biologists.
Examples of such papers are studies describing novel spatial gene expression patterns and gene phylogeny, new model systems or containing a usable collection of data of particular value to the field. This would not include, for example, a description of the expression pattern of a gene in one species that has already been described in another species, or an expression pattern with no obvious link to a developmental process. Please note, authors submitting a Resource Paper should select "Research Paper" article type and designate "Resource" under Manuscript Category in Additional Information step 3 of submission.
No specific formatting restrictions are applied to Resource papers; however, we encourage authors to prepare succinct descriptions, so to have Resource papers as readily usable references for scientists. Short Communications Short communications are intended to provide quick publication of good impact results, thus portraying current advances in the field of Developmental Biology.
This new format of paper in DB should contain approximately four figures and a single scientific conclusion.
Although there is no specific word limit, typical short communications are in the range of 2,, words. Review Articles Review articles are intended to reach a broad audience of readers from investigators in the field to new graduate students learning the material for the first time.
We encourage submissions of review articles on established topics in the field but also on timely and provocative areas of research. Review Articles are by invitation; scientists who wish to contribute a review should send a pre-submission inquiry to one of the editors.
Opinion papers DB Perspectives This article type is intended to raise new ideas and challenge current dogma. An abstract is still required but the format is flexible. Perspectives are subject to the same review process as original papers, but may receive expedited consideration. Technique Technique provide a space for protocols and technologies that advance the field of Developmental Biology.
Novel solutions and applications of technologies at the frontier with other areas of science will be considered of particular importance.
No specific formatting requirements are applied to these articles, protocols are encouraged as long as an appropriate introductory background and aim of the technique and representative images are included. Commentary DB accepts commentaries on newly published articles of particular relevance to the developmental biology field.
A commentary may also speculate on future directions of a certain topic and may include a personal opinion. Commentaries should be no longer than words and should not contain an abstract. Key resources table We encourage authors to submit a key resources table during submission.
The Key Resources Table serves to highlight materials and resources including genetically modified organisms and strains, cell lines, reagents, software, experimental models, and original source data for computational studies essential to reproduce results presented in the manuscript.
Literature listed in the Key Resources Table must be included in the References list. Please do not add custom headings or subheadings to the Key Resources Table.
Please download and fill out this template. Supplementary data Developmental Biology supports the presentation of all experimental data in its final published articles online and in print. For this reason word length and figure numbers are not restricted except for Short Communications and supplementary data are generally not supported.
See appropriate paragraph below for explanation. Here you will be able to learn more about the online submission system via interactive tutorials, explore a range of problem solutions via our knowledgebase, and find answers to frequently asked questions. For questions on the reviewing and submission process please contact the Developmental Biology Editorial Office at: DB elsevier. Declaration of interest All authors must disclose any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence bias their work.
