Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Topical Collection is designed to celebrate the first impact factor (4.829) of the open-access journal Cells. Cells has entered the ranking in the category ‘Cell Biology’ (SCIE) at 55 of 190 (Q2). We would like to thank everyone who has supported Cells in the past 6.5 years. We have a team of great editors, associate editors, and reviewers who help to provide high-quality feedback to authors. We have published many excellent articles and have seen readership broaden consistently each month. We would like to thank all authors for their inspiring manuscripts, their trust in the journal, and their contribution to the future success of Cells serving as an international interdisciplinary forum of cell biology.

The Topical Collection covers all topics related to cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and biophysics. To celebrate our 1st impact factor, submissions received before 31 December 2018 will enjoy a 30% discount on the Article Processing Charge.

We look forward receiving research papers and reviews from scientists in academia, biotech, and pharma who are focused on unravelling the mechanisms underlying the function of live cells.

Dr. Alexander E. Kalyuzhny
Guest Editor
