Development Genes and Evolution publishes high-quality reports on all aspects of developmental and evolutionary biology. This builds on the journal’s long history of focusing on developmental mechanisms from a broad perspective. The topics covered by the journal are exemplified by the following themes:

  • Developmental processes of all life stages in model and non-model organisms
  • Developmental diversity and evolution of plants and animals
  • Genes and pattern formation, cell lineages and fate maps
  • Cellular mechanisms of morphogenesis and organogenesis
  • Stem cells and regeneration in development and evolution
  • Quantitative genetics and functional genomics of developmental processes
  • Evolution of developmentally relevant genes
  • Ecological influence on developmental and evolutionary processes (eco-evo-devo)

DGE History in short
A short outline on the journal's history of shaping and keeping pace with changing perspectives on developmental biology research:

  • Founded in 1894 as Archiv für Entwicklungsmechanik der Organismen by Wilhelm Roux, who edited the journal from 1894 to 1923.
  • Continued from 1925 as Wilhelm Roux’ Archiv für Entwicklungsmechanik der Organismen, edited by Benno Romeis (1925-1967), Hans Spemann (1924-1941), Walther Vogt (1915-1941), Otto Mangold (1942-1944), Alfred Kūhn (1947-1967), Gerhard Krause (1968-1975).
  • Continued from 1975 as Wilhelm Roux’ Archives of Developmental Biology, edited by Gerhard Krause (1975-1979), Rudolf Weber (1975-1985).
  • Continued from 1985 as Roux’ Archives of Developmental Biology, edited by Rudolf Weber (1986-1988), Klaus Sander (1988-1996).
  • Continued from 1996 as Development Genes and Evolution, edited by Diethard Tautz (1996-2004), Volker Hartenstein (2004-2015), Angelika Stollewerk (2016- ).

About DGE in a few lines

  • Long running journal, founded 1894
  • Examines all major aspects of development biology with a special emphasis on topics that deal with evolutionary questions
  • Reports on experimental work at the systemic, cellular and molecular levels in the field of animal and plant systems
  • Topics range from diversity and evolution to genes and pattern formation in invertebrates, vertebrates and plants, and beyond
  • 100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
