Journal of Experimental Biology is celebrating 100 years of discovery in 2023 and, as part of our reflections, we are inviting journal Editors to tell us their thoughts about the journal and to look to the future.
Katie Gilmour is a JEB Monitoring Editor and is based at the University of Ottawa, Canada.
Sanjay Sane is a JEB Monitoring Editor and is based at the National Center for Biological Sciences, India.
Craig Franklin is Editor-in-Chief of JEB and is based at the University of Queensland, Australia.
Conversation: in the field
JEB authors sometimes go to the ends of the earth to answer the questions that intrigue them, but the inside stories behind each research paper are rarely told. Here, we present a series of interviews in which authors discuss the role of fieldwork in their research, the places that they visit, together with the challenges and risks they have to overcome and their experiences of working with animals in their natural environments.
Read the Editorial to find out more about the series. All researchers featured in Conversation were nominated by JEB Editors or Editorial Advisory Board members. If you would like to recommend a scientist to be interviewed, please contact the Editorial Office.

Conversation: early-career researchers
As a community journal, JEB is keen to support the next generation of scientists. Here, we present a series of interviews in which early-career researchers discuss their work and the journeys that have led them to where they are now, together with wider issues in research and publishing and what they think will and should change in the future.
Read the Editorial to find out how else JEB supports junior scientists.
All researchers featured in Conversation were nominated by JEB Editors or Editorial Advisory Board members. If you would like to recommend a scientist to be interviewed, or if you are an early-career researcher yourself and would like to suggest other initiatives in which JEB can support you, please contact the Editorial Office.
