In this review we focus on the role jets and outflows play in the star and planet formation process. Our essential question can be posed as follows: are jets/outflows merely an epiphenomenon associated with star formation or do they play an important role in mediating the physics of assembling stars both individually and globally? We address this question by reviewing the current state of observations and their key points of contact with theory. Our review of jet/outflow phenomena is organized… 
The Role of Magnetic Fields in Protostellar Outflows and Star Formation
The role of outflows in the formation of stars and the protostellar disks that generate them is a central question in astrophysics. Outflows are associated with star formation across the entire
Jets from massive protostars: clues on their role in the formation process from masers and high resolution radio / NIR imaging
Disks and jets are believed to deeply influence the early evolution of low-mass stars, but their role in high-mass (M $>$ 7 M$_{\odot}$) star formation is still unclear. To investigate this point we
Laboratory formation of a scaled protostellar jet by coaligned poloidal magnetic field
Following simulations of the process at the full astrophysical scale, it is concluded that it can also explain recently discovered x-ray emission features observed in low-density regions at the base of protostellar jets, such as the well-studied jet HH 154.

Molecular jets are seen coming from the youngest protostars in the early phase of low-mass star formation. They are detected in CO, SiO, and SO at (sub)millimeter wavelengths down to the innermost
Episodic molecular outflow in the very young protostellar cluster Serpens South
It is reported that an outflow from a young, class 0 protostar, at the hub of the very active and filamentary Serpens South protostellar cluster, shows unambiguous episodic events, and that the outflow remains intact in a very clustered environment, probably providing efficient momentum transfer for driving turbulence.
The Role of Magnetic Fields in Setting the Star Formation Rate and the Initial Mass Function
Star-forming gas clouds are strongly magnetized, and their ionization fractions are high enough to place them close to the regime of ideal magnetohydrodyamics on all but the smallest size scales. In
The impact of episodic outflow feedback on stellar multiplicity and the star formation efficiency
The accretion of material onto young protostars is accompanied by the launching of outflows. Observations show that accretion, and therefore also outflows, are episodic. However, the effects of
Simulating the interstellar medium and stellar feedback on a moving mesh: implementation and isolated galaxies
We introduce the Stars and MUltiphase Gas in GaLaxiEs – SMUGGLE model, an explicit and comprehensive stellar feedback model for the moving-mesh code arepo. This novel sub-resolution model resolves
Protostellar Outflows: a window to the past
During the early phases of low-mass star formation, episodic accretion causes the ejection of high-velocity outflow bullets, which carry a fossil record of the driving protostar’s accretion
On the early evolution of massive star clusters: the case of cloud D1 and its embedded cluster in NGC 5253
We discuss a theoretical model for the early evolution of massive star clusters and confront it with the ALMA, radio and infrared observations of the young stellar cluster highly obscured by the
