Aims and Scope
Development’s scope covers all aspects of plant and animal development, including stem cell biology and regeneration. The single most important criterion for acceptance in Development is scientific excellence. Research papers (articles and reports) should therefore pose and test a significant hypothesis or address a significant question, and should provide novel perspectives that advance our understanding of development. We also encourage submission of papers that use computational methods or mathematical models to obtain significant new insights into developmental biology topics. Manuscripts that are descriptive in nature will be considered only when they lay important groundwork for a field and/or provide novel resources for understanding developmental processes of broad interest to the community.

Development includes a Techniques and Resources section for the publication of new methods, datasets, and other types of resources. Papers describing new techniques should include a proof-of-principle demonstration that the technique is valuable to the developmental biology community; they need not include in-depth follow-up analysis. The technique must be described in sufficient detail to be easily replicated by other investigators. Development will also consider protocol-type papers of exceptional interest to the community. We welcome submission of Resource papers, for example those reporting new databases, systems-level datasets, or genetic resources of major value to the developmental biology community. For all papers, the data or resource described must be made available to the community with minimal restrictions upon publication.

To aid navigability, Development has dedicated sections of the journal to stem cells & regeneration and to human development. The criteria for acceptance into these sections is identical to those outlined above. Authors and editors are encouraged to nominate appropriate manuscripts for inclusion in one of these sections.

Very good, a classic old magazine, highly recognized in the field of development. Although the impact factor in China is poorly managed, with a Cell Discovery IF=38? Two years ago it was 4. Relying solely on the impact factor for scientific evaluation is bound to fail sooner or later! It is considered worthwhile to publish an article in such an established magazine!

How did such a good magazine end up in Zone 2? Just talking about the impetuousness of scientific research, how can it not be impetuous to do it like this? Even if Nature publishes a sub-journal, it is considered a pile of shit called Nature. As long as it is associated with Nature, it will still be pushed to Zone 10 or higher.
