Established in 1925, The Company of Biologists sees its journals as a core service provided for the advancement and promotion of biological research.

Publishing and our Journals

Publishing is at the centre of The Company’s activities and it is proud of the five international journals that we produce. Development, Journal of Cell Science and The Journal of Experimental Biology are three well established, leading community journals in their fields. In line with The Company’s aims to disseminate knowledge, The Company also publishes two fully Open Access journals, Disease Models & Mechanisms (DMM) and Biology Open (BiO) launched in 2008 and 2011, respectively.

The Company ensures that all its research is as widely available as possible, and as such, we offer the option of Open Access on our subscription model journals.  In addition to this all new articles published in these journals are freely available online after six months. Our online articles are also freely available to users in developing countries immediately upon publication through the HINARI, AGORA and OARE initiatives.
