the following information are returned to the authors
(1) In accordance with the proﬁle and tasks of the
, 1970, vol. 1, no. 1, pp. 5–9),
papers are published on all aspects of developmental
biology, but preference is given to studies dealing with
differentiation of eukaryotes carried out using the
methods of experimental embryology, molecular biol-
ogy and genetics, gene and cell engineering, and immu-
nochemistry. The journal publishes problem papers,
reviews and minireviews, original studies, brief com-
munications about the results and methods of studies,
chronicles (including international news), discussions,
book reviews, letters to the editor, and information
about memorable dates.
The following topical sections have been intro-
Experimental Embryology, Molecular Biology of
Development, Developmental Genetics, Biochemistry
of Development, Physiology of Development, Cell Dif-
ferentiation and Proliferation, Gametogenesis, Medical
Embryology, Biology of Tumor Growth, Regenration,
Developmental Biology of Plants, etc.
(2) Authors should send their manuscripts to the
Editorial Ofﬁce in three typed double-spaced copies on
A4 paper with the left margin no less than 4 cm. It is
desirable that the authors also present their manuscripts
as a computer ﬁle, preferably in ASCII codes (WORD
6.0 and 7.0 formats are also acceptable).

arate sheet the ﬁrst and last names of the corresponding
author, home address, home and ofﬁce telephones, and
(4) The title page should look as follows:
—name of topical section,
—title of paper,
—authors’ names (initials are placed in front of
—institutions where this study was carried out and
postal addresses of these institutions with postal code,
(5) Manuscripts should be carefully prepared for
publication. Repetition of the same data in the text,
tables and ﬁgures should be avoided. Original papers
should be organized in chapters as follows: Introduc-
tion, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion.
(6) Physical units and symbols accepted in the Inter-
national System of Units should be used and relative
atomic masses of elements according to
All abbreviations should be deciphered, except a
small number of widely used abbreviations. No abbre-
viations or references should be used in the abstract.
