CALLS FOR PAPERS: Cell Stress & Chaperones will be launching some new special issues in 2022. The journal encourages submissions on these topics that will contribute to a fuller understanding of each research area.

Organisms in a Changing Environment

Guest Editors: Melody Clark (British Antarctic Survey), Manuela Truebano (University of Plymouth, UK), Ariel Shabtay (Newe Ya'ar Research Center, Israel), and Elizabeth Waters (San Diego State University, USA)

Submission Deadline: December 31, 2022

On the heels of our special collection on organisms in a changing environment, we are now planning this special issue aiming to collect scientific contributions in the field of environmental stress.

Description: Our understanding of the cellular stress response (CSR) has developed over the past few decades, largely through a focus on model organisms, so that we now have detailed knowledge of some of the mechanisms involved in the CSR, and their importance in biomedicine. The field has more recently received renewed interest owing to the growing pressures exerted by climate change, and the impact of associated environmental stress in ecologically important organisms. This special issue aims to highlight the importance of cellular stress responses in the maintenance of homeostasis during environmental stress, bringing together research in stress responses in plants, domestic animals and non-model animals from marine, terrestrial and freshwater habitats. We particularly encourage original research and review articles that include integrative responses at different levels of biological organisation, from cellular to organismal. Sources of stress may include chemicals, nutrient depletion, global environmental drivers such as temperature, pH, salinity, hypoxia and drought.  Given the recent progress in the application of RNA-Seq to non-model species and the ease of transcriptome generation, we no longer accept single gene studies. We also discourage purely descriptive (in silico) or small incremental studies. The corresponding author should outline in their submission letter, how their work has advanced the field. Please also note that all sequence data contained in the paper (including any originating transcriptome assemblies) must be submitted to public databases and accession numbers provided in the submitted manuscript. 

Stress Responses, SARS-COV-2 and Women’s Health

Guest Editors: Drs. Steven S Witkin (Weill Cornell Medicine) and Iara M Linhares (São Paulo University Medical School)

Submission Deadline: December 31, 2022

Description: This Special Issue will update the current state of research on the relation between stress responses and consequences of SARS-CoV-2 infection in pregnant, non-pregnant, and post-menopausal women as well as provide commentaries and analysis of current controversies within this area. We welcome a range of submissions from original basic science and epidemiology studies to clinical trials, comprehensive reviews and commentaries.
