publishes succinct case reports on the etiology, clinical delineation, genetic mapping, and molecular embryology of birth defects. This journal covers such topics as multiple congenital anomaly syndromes - with particular emphasis on previously undescribed conditions, rare findings, ethnic differences in existing syndromes, fetal abnormalities, and cytogenetic aberrations that might give clues to the localization of developmental genes. Regular features include original, peer-reviewed articles, conference reports, book and software reviews, abstracts and summaries from the UK Dysmorphology Club, and literature summaries.
Submitted articles undergo a preliminary review by the editor. Some articles may be returned to authors wihtout further consideration. Those being considered for publication will undergo further assessment and peer-review by the editors and those invited to do so from a reviewer pool.
