These abstracts should not be cited in bibliographies. Material contained herein should be treated as personal communication and should be cited as such only with the consent of the author.
A 'new' journal that should prove useful to many of us will begin publication in January, 1987. The journal, called Development, is a reincarnation of JEEM (Journal of Embryology and Experimental Morphology). Development has a new panel of editors who plan to emphasize publication of molecular, genetic and cellular aspects of developmental biology. Development promises a fast publication time ( three to four weeks from receipt to editorial decision and 13 weeks from acceptance to publication). Contributions can be sent directly to editors in either the U.K. (Richard Gardner, Oxford; Mike Gaze, Edinburgh; Peter Lawrence, Cambridge; Hugh Woodland, Warwick) or the U. S. (Richard Hynes, MIT; Doug Melton, Harvard). Details about preparation of manuscripts for the journal can also be obtained from the editors. The journal will be something called American quarto size (like Cell) and is supposed to provide excellent reproductions of micrographs. There are no page charges.
