ECR Spotlight interviews

As a community journal, JEB actively encourages and supports the contributions of graduate/postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers (early-career researchers; ECRs) to the research it publishes. ECR Spotlight is an interview series with ECR authors from a selection of the papers published in the journal each year. In addition to promoting the ECR alongside their paper, the section aims to highlight the diversity of ECRs working in experimental biology and the huge variety of animals and physiological systems that are essential for the ‘comparative’ approach.

Would you like to be featured in ECR Spotlight? Details of how to apply are sent to all authors on acceptance of their paper in JEB. Submit your paper.

Our other interview series are Conversation: early-career researchersConversation: in the field and Conversation: JEB@100.
