Publisher: Wiley-Liss, Inc.
The Anatomical Record Part A: Discoveries in Molecular, Cellular, and
Evolutionary Biology is an official publication of the American Association
of Anatomists whose purpose is to rapidly publish new discoveries in the
morphological aspects of molecular, cellular, systems, and evolutionary
Emphasis will focus upon major new findings in the anatomical consequences
of gene disruption, activation, or over expression upon cell, tissue, or
organ architecture. The journal recognizes the importance of descriptive
studies in contemporary research, particularly when framed in the context of
experimental models or questions. An important priority will be those
discoveries and new advances made through the use of imaging modalities that
range from those that image real-time signalling processes to ones that
image protein or gene expression in individual cells, tissues, or whole
Papers will be accepted dealing with functional morphology of any vertebrate
organ system including those with a developmental, comparative, or
evolutionary theme. With respect to developmental biology, our sister
journal--Developmental Dynamics--focuses on biochemical and molecular
mechanisms of vertebrate and invertebrate development.
Our area of coverage will be directed primarily to the organ or system level
where descriptive studies of normal and abnormal development may become an
important consideration in characterizing phenotypes. In addition, timely
reviews of important topics related to Anatomy and its subdisciplines will
be regularly included.
Educational topics, more general reviews, matters of controversy, and other
issues of general interest to the readership will be published in a
companion publication, The Anatomical Record Part B: The New Anatomist. The
criteria of acceptance of all papers are the quality of the research, its
originality and significance to our readership.
The abstracts and proceedings of the annual meeting of the American
Association of Anatomists is also published in The Anatomical Record Part A.
No paper that has appeared previously will be accepted nor will simultaneous
publication elsewhere be allowed.
