Special issue Call for Papers: Organ-on-Chip and microphysiological systems

Friday, 6 November

To highlight the new alliance with EUROoCS, Stem Cell Reports is seeking manuscripts on innovative studies incorporating stem cells or their derivatives into Organ-on-Chip and microphysiological systems for publication in an upcoming special issue of the journal.

Topics include applications for functional genomics and disease modeling, and basic studies of cell interactions in tissue microenvironments during development or adult life, including the assessment of the influence of the physical environment on cell behavior.

Submission
To inquire about the suitability of a potential submission, please email stemcellreports@isscr.org.

Authors who have never submitted a paper to Stem Cell Reports (SCR) need to register on the SCR website and follow the standard submission process. Please mention your interest in this special issue in the cover letter. All manuscripts will go through the standard peer review process and will be evaluated on the journal's standard criteria for novelty and impact. The final decision about acceptance will be taken by the guest editors:

Stem Cell Reports is the ISSCR's peer-reviewed, open-access, online journal communicating fundamental discoveries in stem cell research, translational and clinical studies since 2013. Specifically, Stem Cell Reports is interested in publishing innovative studies incorporating stem cells or their derivatives into Organ-on-Chip and microphysiological systems for applications to functional genomics and disease modeling, or to basic studies of cell interactions in tissue microenvironments during development or adult life, including the assessment of the influence of the physical environment on cell behavior. Studies focused mainly on engineering of Organ-on-Chip and microphysiological systems, or those reporting the outcomes of pharmacological or toxicological screens, are outside of the journal's scope (except where the endpoint of such screens relates to stem cell growth or differentiation). For more information, please visit the Stem Cell Reports website and the Aims and Scope.
