The Publications of The Society for Invitro Biology

Publications of the Society for In Vitro Biology


This premier society-based international journal is devoted to the latest research, techniques, and developments related to the in vitro cultivation of cells, tissue, organs, or tumors from plants and animals, including humans. In Vitro presents original research devoted to the advancement and dissemination of basic and applied knowledge and is published as two different, specifically focused journals, In Vitro Cellular and Developmental Biology - Animal and In Vitro Cellular and Developmental Biology - Plant. Together the combined titles represent an essential resource for researchers involved in cellular, molecular, or developmental biology using in vitro grown or maintained organs, tissues, or cells derived from both animals and plants.

In Vitro Cellular & Developmental Biology ranks in the top 30% of cell biology journals, and many of the journal's readers consider it "critical" or "important" to their work. The journals are abstracted in Current Contents, Index Medicus, Medline, Cancerlit, Chemical Abstracts, BIOSIS, and others.

Members of the Society receive the journal of their choice, either Animal or Plant, as part of their dues, and subscriptions are available to nonmember individuals and institutions at a low rate.

This issue, containing the final program and abstracts for the upcoming Annual Meeting, mails in the spring to all subscribers and members of the Society. The issue contains the schedule of functions, meeting summary, and list of exhibitors.

Formerly TCA Report, this quarterly newsletter contains news from Sections, Branches, and Committees; news of members, details of forthcoming meetings, courses, classified advertisements; listings of new publications; and, occasionally, reviews. It is provided to SIVB members as part of their dues and to Branch members.


The SIVB has occasionally published books and proceedings. We have also arranged with several prominent book publishers to offer their cell and in vitro related titles at a discount to SIVB members. Check the bookstore for a complete list of titles available.

The SIVB has also made arrangements to offer significant discounts on the following titles from Springer: Cytotechnology - Incorporating Methods in Cell Science and Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture. Please see our membership application for this year's current pricing.

Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture

The exploitation of cell cultures in a biotechnological context is based upon research at all levels of academic and industrial input. Cytotechnology represents a central repository for information on both the infrastructure of cell technology and the applied use of cell cultures, thus providing a panoramic perspective of the many facets and disciplines needed to develop successful cell cultures. Now incorporating the former title Methods in Cell Science, the journal will also provide the forum for publishing the most up-to-date methods developed during the course of cell science research involving vertebrates, invertebrates, plants or single celled prokaryotic or eukaryotic organisms. This journal is being offered to SIVB members in print format at less than 30% off the regular subscription price. To order this member's only subscription, click here.

Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture is an international journal publishing original results of fundamental studies on plant cells, tissues and organs in vitro. Some topics covered include: growth, development, and differentiation; anatomical, histological, and ultrastructural aspects; genetics and breeding; physiology and biochemistry; protoplast, cell, and tissue culture; micropropagation; secondary metabolism; and biotechnology. This journal is offered to SIVB members in print format at less than 25% of the regular subscription price. To order this member's only subscription, click here.
