Cover from ‘Development’ (Copyright © The Company of Biologists Ltd 2008; reproduced with permission of the Company of Biologists)The Company of Biologists is delighted to announce the completion of the process of digital retroconversion of the archives of its journal,

The entire contents of Development’s predecessor, JEEM (the Journal of Embryology and Experimental Morphology) is now freely available online.

The complete archive of JEEM, from its first issue in 1953 through to the
final one in 1986 (after which the journal was renamed Development) can be
accessed through the Development’s website  (http://dev.biologists.org).

The online archive can also be accessed via the UCL Library Catalogue and the UCL Library Services ejournals list

It comprises over 40,000 pages of material, published over 33 years, and is
now made available online for the first time. The archive is entirely free
of charge for everyone.

JEEM was at the forefront of the major changes that the emerging
discipline of developmental biology underwent in the postwar years from
its foundation in 1953 by a very distinguished group of biologists.
