Scope and Aims

Cell Biology International (CBI) is the official publication of the International Federation for Cell Biology. Each month, the journal publishes easy-to-assimilate, up-to-the minute reports of experimental findings by researchers using a wide range of the latest techniques. Promoting the aims of cell biologists worldwide, papers reporting on structure and function - especially where they relate to the physiology of the whole cell - are strongly encouraged. Molecular biology is welcome, as long as articles report findings that are seen in the wider context of cell biology. In covering all areas of the cell, the journal is both appealing and accessible to a broad audience. Authors whose papers do not appeal to cell biologists in general because their topic is too specialized (e.g. infectious microbes) are recommended to send them to a more relevant journal. CBI's focus is specifically on the cellular level: papers reporting whole animal studies or entirely clinical work (which would be more suited to a medical journal, e.g. pure histopathological studies or clinical immunology), are not likely to be accepted, unless they are fully focused on some important cellular aspect.

The Journal Features:
* Original papers: articles relating to all aspects of animal and plant cell biology
* Short communications: brief and rapidly published papers making a specific well-documented point
* Mini-reviews: usually invited contributors providing state-of-the-art overviews of hot topics
* Reviews
* Commentaries and letters to the editor, including critiques of recent papers, often by invited contributors
* Hypotheses
* Methodology
* Editorials
* Special online collections
