Publishing is at the centre of The Company's activities and it is proud of the five international journals that we produce. Established in 1925, The Company of Biologists publishes five journals: Development, Journal of Cell Science, The Journal of Experimental Biology, Disease Models & Mechanisms (DMM) and Biology Open (BiO). As well as the direct benefit that our journals provide to the research community, they yield income that, alongside a long-term policy of careful investment, is used to support a wide range of scientific activities, including grants for scientific meetings, workshops, conferences and travelling fellowships for students allowing skill-acquiring collaborative visits to other labs and attendance at research conferences. In 2008, The Company also launched a series of fully-funded interdisciplinary workshops. The three-day workshops are held in informal retreat surroundings and provide leading experts and students from a diverse range of scientific backgrounds with a stimulating environment for the cross fertilisation of interdisciplinary ideas.
Development is a leading primary research journal in the field of developmental biology. From its initial launch in 1953 as the Journal of Embryology and Experimental Morphology to the present day, Development continues to publish cutting-edge research articles across the spectrum of plant and animal development, covering topics ranging from stem cells and nuclear reprogramming, to evolutionary developmental and systems biology, from neurobiology to regional specification, morphogenesis and organogenesis, and from epigenetics to the aetiology of disease.

Journal of Cell Science (JCS) is an international peer-reviewed journal committed to scientific excellence across the field of cell biology. The journal was established in 1853 as the Quarterly Journal of Microscopical Science and gifted to the Company of Biologists in the 1940s. In 1966, the journal was redesigned and relaunched under the new title Journal of Cell Science, and continues to publish cutting-edge research in all areas of cell biology.

Journal of Experimental Biology (JEB) is at the forefront of comparative animal physiology. From its launch as The British Journal of Experimental Biology in 1923 to the present day, JEB continues to publish papers on the form and function of living organisms at all levels of biological organisation, from the molecular and subcellular to the integrated whole animal. Our authors and readers reflect a broad interdisciplinary group of scientists who study molecular, cellular and organismal physiology in an evolutionary and environmental context.

Disease Models & Mechanisms (http://dmm.biologists.org/) is an Open Access international biomedical research journal. The journal publishes original research and in-depth reviews focused on the use of model systems to better understand, diagnose and treat human disease. DMM also aims to promote the development of ideas, projects and collaborations among basic scientists, translational researchers and clinicians to support the growing translational emphasis in basic research.
Biology Open (BiO) is an online-only Open Access journal that publishes peer-reviewed original research across all aspects of the biological sciences, including cell science, developmental biology and experimental biology. BiO aims to provide rapid publication for scientifically sound observations and valid conclusions in these allied fields. The journal is designed to facilitate dialogue and build a valuable body of work that supports the efforts of the research community.
