  • The Journal Browser provides a list of more than 30,000 journals. It can be consulted by authors who wish to select a journal for publishing their manuscript Open Access. The information in this list is aggregated from several sources on a regular basis:

    • A list of journals for which the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) has made deals with publishers, to make articles Open Access. Under these deals, corresponding authors of Dutch universities can publish their articles Open Access in the participating journals with discounts on the article processing charges (APCs).
    • A list of journals covered by the Journal Citation Reports.
    • A list of journals covered by Scopus.
    • Journals indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
    • Lists of journals for which specific Dutch universities have made deals with publishers, to make articles Open Access. Under these deals, corresponding authors of these universities can publish their articles Open Access in the participating journals with discounts on the article processing charges (APCs). Depending on the university from which the Journal Browser is consulted, this information is shown.
    • Additional data on citations made to journals, in articles published by staff from a specific Dutch university, that are made available by that university. Depending on the university from which the Journal Browser is consulted, this information is shown.

    In the Journal Browser, a search box can be used to look up journals on certain subjects. The terms entered in this box are used to search the journal titles and other metadata (e.g. keywords).

    After having selected journals by subject, it is possible to apply additional filters. These concern no/full costs and discounts for Open Access publishing, support on Open Access publishing in journals, and the quartile to which the journal’s impact factor belongs.

    When one selects a journal in the Journal Browser, the following information may be presented:

    • General information about the selected journal such as title and ISSNs, together with a link to the journal’s website.
    • APC discount that holds for the selected journal if it is part of an Open Access deal.
    • Impact measures for the selected journal from Journal Citation Reports or Scopus. The impact measures that are shown may vary, depending on the university from which the Journal Browser is consulted. For some universities, the number of citations made to the selected journal (in articles published by staff from that university) is also shown.
    • Information from Sherpa/Romeo on the conditions under which articles from the selected journal may be made available via Green Open Access.
    • A listing of articles recently published in the selected journal.
    • For some universities, information is available on what journals have been co-cited most frequently together with the selected journal (in articles published by staff from these universities). When available, this information is presented under ‘similar journals’.

It is a great honor for me to receive the prestigious Gairdner Award for Biomedical Research. The title of this essay might imply that it will contain advice on how to win such a major scientific prize. However, my intention is quite different. More in keeping with the famous civil rights song of the same name, my hope is to articulate a bigger picture view of what matters in the long run. Why do we do science' What is fulfilling about a career in science' Is an international prize the pinnacle of success, or are there more important outcomes'

Connie Eaves sets high standards for herself, her science, and her colleagues, which has fueled a stellar career that counts as successes insights into basic stem cell biology, important discoveries in leukemia and breast cancer, and a cohort of trainees that she considers family. Cell editor Lara Szewczak caught up with Connie, the recipient of the 2019 Canada Gairdner Wightman Award, to discuss her dual passions for stem cell biology and mentoring talented young scientists. Annotated excerpts from this conversation are presented below.

The 2019 Gairdner Prize will be given to John F.X. Diffley and Bruce Stillman for their groundbreaking work on the mechanisms and control of the initiation of eukaryotic DNA replication. No two people have contributed more extensively, or over a longer period of time, to enlighten us on how our genomes replicate themselves once and only once per cell cycle.

When I was finishing up my graduate studies at Brandeis University, my plan was to pursue the field of enzyme kinetics after I received my PhD in biochemistry. But after giving birth to twins 5 days after defending my thesis, I decided my plan required a short-term adjustment. My thesis advisor, professor Nathan O. Kaplan, helped me to find a position that would accommodate a flexible schedule while my boys were young. As a result, I began conducting research in the Department of Pharmacology at Tufts University Medical School, with the expectation that I would move back into my intended field in a few years.

Synthetic refactoring makes naturally occurring regulatory systems more amenable to manipulation by removing or recoding their natural genetic complexity. Shaw et al. apply this technique to the yeast mating response pathway, creating a simplified, highly engineerable signaling module that can be used to construct precisely optimized, application-specific GPCR biosensors.

In this issue of Cell, Lytle et al. (2019) integrate functional genomic approaches to identify molecular dependencies of pancreatic cancer stem cells that may be exploited therapeutically. The comprehensive analysis reveals an unexpected role for retinoic acid receptor-related orphan receptor gamma (RORγ), a T-cell-associated transcription factor, in defining the stemness and the aggressive behavior of pancreatic cancer.

Obesity is one of the most serious health challenges of our time. In this issue of Cell, Khera and co-authors demonstrate the striking ability of genetics, in the form of a polygenic risk score, to identify those individuals at high risk for obesity. This genetic risk expresses itself early as childhood obesity, reinforcing the notion that early prevention is essential to combatting the obesity epidemic.

In this issue of Cell, Uderhardt et al. employed intravital two-photon microscopy to examine tissue-resident macrophage responses to sterile cellular injuries of variable size. They observed that while multi-cell “macrolesions” are characteristically pro-inflammatory, resident macrophages can “cloak” single-cell microlesions to prevent excessive neutrophil recruitment and limit subsequent tissue damage.
