Exciting Upcoming Special Issues
The Brain-Gut Connection
This special issue entitled “The brain-gut connection: environmental influences on gastrointestinal biology and neuro-behavior across development.” is being edited by Dr. Bridget Callaghan and Ms. Morgan Firestein.
The study of brain-gut communication is rapidly expanding and research findings with relevance to developmental psychobiology continue to emerge. The interdisciplinary nature of this research field, intersecting with psychology, neuroscience, microbiology, gastroenterology, and clinical science, has resulted in a burgeoning body of data across several different species and myriad developmental stages.
This special issue marks the 50th anniversary of Developmental Psychobiology. This special issue celebrates both the past and future of the field, and is co-edited by Dr. Dima Amso and Dr. Mark Blumberg.
2017 Annual Meeting Abstracts are published in Developmental Psychobiology, 29 JAN 2018 | DOI: 10.1002/dev.21598
In each issue, Developmental Psychobiology will feature one article and access to it will be free initially.
A yearly subscription to the online version of Developmental Psychobiology is included with ALL ISDP memberships. All ISDP members are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to Developmental Psychobiology. The journal also sponsors awards which are presented at the ISDP Annual Meetings.

Best Student Paper Award
Submission Deadline: June 30, 2018
The Hennessy-Smotherman-Wiley Best Student Paper Award will be made for the best paper by a student published in Developmental Psychobiology over a one year period. The goals of the award are:
(1) to promote the highest quality of student research in the field of developmental psychobiology, and
(2) to encourage students in the field to submit their best work to Developmental Psychobiology.
The winner will be awarded a $500 prize and will have his/her name announced at the annual meeting.
a. The work described and the writing of the paper must primarily have been done by the student (the specific contributions of the student must be detailed in writing to the Editor-in-Chief of the journal by the student’s advisor).
b. The work must be completed before the PhD is awarded.
c. The student must be first author.
d. The manuscript must initially be submitted within three years of receiving the PhD.
e. Neither the contestant nor advisor needs to be a member of the society or to attend the annual meeting to win (though both attendance and membership are encouraged).
f. A subcommittee will judge the contest. (If a conflict of interest arises—e.g., student of a judge applies—the editor of the journal will appoint a replacement judge.)
g. The editor will remind authors of articles accepted in the journal of the contest and ask the corresponding author if the first author is an eligible student.
h. The winner will be announced at each year’s meeting.
i. Criteria for judging will include scientific significance, originality, contribution by the student and presentation style.
To identify yourself as a candidate, include a request for your manuscript to be considered when you submit your manuscript to Michele R. Brumley, Editor-in-Chief, Developmental Psychobiology (Email: [email protected]). Please include contact information for the nominee, the full title of the manuscript and the month in which it was published. Requests to be considered for this award are accepted throughout the calendar year, but must be received by 06/30/2018.
