Thank you for visiting our website after seeing us at the 60th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Society of Zoologists.
Journal of Experimental Biology is a proud sponsor of this meeting.
On this page we would like to tell you more about our journal and how we can support you.

Journal of Experimental Biology (JEB) is the leading primary research journal in comparative physiology and publishes papers on the form and function of living organisms at all levels of biological organisation, from the molecular and subcellular to the integrated whole animal. Our authors and readers reflect a broad interdisciplinary group of scientists who study molecular, cellular and organismal physiology in an evolutionary and environmental context.
To get a sense of the broad array of topics and species that are covered in Journal of Experimental Biology, take a look at our 2020 Highlights.
Many of the participants at this year's CSZ meeting have published their research in JEB.
The subject collections listed below highlight a selection of the papers of some of the ECRs nominated for society awards in 2020 and 2021:
- Brittney Borowiec (Presidents' Award finalist 2021)
- Dillon Chung (Presidents' Award finalist 2021)
- Erika Eliason (Boutilier Award winner 2021)
- Kyle Elliot (Boutilier Award winner 2020)
- Till Harter (Cameron Award winner 2020)
- Jessica Kennedy (Hoar Award finalist 2021)
- Kristen Lalla (Hoar Award finalist 2021)
- Cayleih Robertson (Cameron Award winner 2021)
- Andy Turko (Presidents' Award finalist 2021)
Our VOC Symposium subject collection collates relevant JEB papers authored by presenters in the Virtual Organizing Committee Symposium - Integrating Organismal Function and Behaviour to Understand How Animals Cope in a Changing World.
For further JEB papers that complement the VOC symposium, see our recent special issue: Predicting the Future: Species Survival in a Changing World.
JEB and its publisher, The Company of Biologists, are committed to supporting those who are at the early stages of their careers. Here are some of the things we do that will benefit the next generation of scientists:
Conversation: a series of interviews in which early-career researchers discuss their work and what they have learnt in their careers so far.
Travelling Fellowships: we offer grants to junior scientists making collaborative visits to other labs or field sites, helping them expand their networks and gain new research skills.
Outstanding paper prize: we award a prize to the junior author of the research paper that is judged to have made the most outstanding contribution to the journal each year
Workshops: we offer funded places for early-career researchers at all of our Workshops. Attending these events is a great way to expand your network and further your research. Here are some testimonials of junior scientists that have attended our Workshops.
There are many good reasons to publish with Journal of Experimental Biology - here are just a few:
- Submissions handled by expert academic Editors
- Competitive decision speeds
- Preprint-friendly policies
- Format-free submission
- Strong commitment at first decision – over 95% of invited revisions accepted
- Free to publish – no page or colour charges, no hidden fees
