Ontogenez (Russian Journal of Developmental Biology) is a scientific journal dedicated to development biology and related disciplines. The journal publishes experimental, theoretical and review articles on mechanisms of development, cell differentiation and growth. We welcome works on the mechanisms of embryonic and post-embryonic development in normal and pathological conditions, performed at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organism levels.


The journal is indexed in the following databases: Web of Science, Science Citation Index Expanded (SciSearch), Pubmed, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), Google Scholar, EBSCO, CSA, Academic OneFile, AGRICOLA, Biological Abstracts, BIOSIS, Current Abstracts, EMBiology Gale, INIS Atomindex, Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition, OCLC, Summon by Serial Solutions, Zoological Record.


Types of publications


Original articles contain new information that contributes to a better understanding of development and cell differentiation. Methodological or "descriptive" articles (e.g., those containing data on the expression of individual genes) are accepted only if they are relevant for developmental biology. The article should not exceed 10 000 words excluding references. The paper should be accompanied by a two-sentence summary and a graphical abstract.


Short reports present new data that can be assessed as priority for the field of biology of development under study. The article should not exceed 3000 words and may include 2 figures and 15 references. The paper should be accompanied by a two-sentence summary and a graphical abstract.


News and views introduce and comment on the substantial advancement and its importance in the field of developmental biology. News and views articles are expected to be not exceed 3000 words with no more than 2 figures, and less than 15 references. The paper should be accompanied by a two-sentence summary and a graphical abstract.


Reviews should be problem-oriented, analytical, with a clearly visible position of the authors on the issue under consideration, with preference given to reviews devoted to new promising areas of biology of development The journal accepts mini-reviews (less than 3000 words, 2 figures, 30 references) and reviews that should not exceed 12 000 words. Both reviews and mini-reviews should be accompanied by a two-sentence summary and a graphical abstract.
