Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The year 2023 marks the 10th anniversary of the Journal of Developmental Biology (JDB) (ISSN 2221-3759), which is a peer-reviewed, open access journal on the development of multicellular organisms at the molecule, cell, tissue, organ, and whole-organism levels. JDB has published over 299 papers by more than 935 authors, and nearly 515 reviewers have submitted at least one review report. We would like to express our sincerest thanks to our readers, innumerable authors, anonymous peer reviewers, editors, and all the people working in some way for the journal who have made substantial contributions over the years. Without your support, we would not be where we are today.

To mark this important milestone, a Special Issue entitled “10th Anniversary of JDB—Recent Advances in Wnt Signaling in Development and Regeneration” is being launched. For over forty years, research on Wnt signaling has played an instrumental role in our understanding of many critical processes controlling embryonic development, as well as adult tissue maintenance and regeneration. Wnt signaling is an ancient signaling pathway that is critical for the development of all metazoans, and research using diverse vertebrate and invertebrate developmental model systems has helped define the essential components of these complex signaling pathways. However, our knowledge of Wnt signaling is still incomplete. This Special Issue will highlight the new research that is expanding our understanding of this fundamental signaling pathway. We will collect research articles and high-quality review papers in the research fields relating to Wnt Signaling in Development and Regeneration. Additionally, research groups working in various areas of this subject are encouraged to make contributions to this Special Issue.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Mechanisms of Wnt signal transduction.
  • Wnt signaling in cell embryonic specification and patterning.
  • Wnt signaling in regeneration.
  • Morphogenesis and Wnt signaling.
  • Wnt signaling in stem cells.
  • The role of Wnt signaling in the evolution of metazoans.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Developmental Biology is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
