Cell Metabolism

Cell Metabolism publishes reports of novel results in any area of metabolic biology, from molecular and cellular biology to translational studies. The unifying theme is homeostatic mechanisms in health and disease, from simpler model systems all the way to the clinic. Published work should not only be of exceptional significance within its field, but also of interest to researchers outside the immediate area. Cell Metabolism also provides expert analysis and commentary on key findings in the field. The journal's mission is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and concepts across the entire metabolic research community, cultivating new areas and fostering cross-disciplinary collaborations in basic research and clinical investigation.


Neuron has established itself as one of the most influential and relied upon journals in the field of neuroscience. The editors embrace interdisciplinary strategies that integrate biophysical, cellular, developmental, and molecular approaches with a systems approach to sensory, motor, and higher-order cognitive functions. Neuron serves as one of the premier intellectual forums of the entire neuroscience community.


Cell publishes findings of unusual significance in any area of experimental biology, including but not limited to cell biology, molecular biology, neuroscience, immunology, virology and microbiology, cancer, human genetics, systems biology, signaling, and disease mechanisms and therapeutics. The basic criterion for considering papers is whether the results provide significant conceptual advances into, or raise provocative questions and hypotheses regarding, an interesting and important biological question. In addition to primary research articles in four formats, Cell features review and opinion articles on recent research advances and issues of interest to its broad readership in the leading edge section.


The Cell Reports Portfolio includes gold open-access journals that span life, medical, and physical science. Our mission is to make cutting-edge research and methodologies across disciplines available to a wide readership.

Cell Reports publishes high-quality papers across the entire life sciences spectrum. The primary criterion for publication in Cell Reports is new biological insight. 

Cell Reports features cutting-edge research, with a focus on a shorter, single-point story, called a report, in addition to a longer research article format and resources. Resources highlight significant technical advances or major informational data sets that provide new biological insight. Reviews covering recent literature in emerging and active fields are also welcome.

The professional in-house editors of Cell Reports work closely with authors, reviewers, and the journal's scientific advisory board. The advisory board comprises current and future leaders in their respective fields who guide the journal with regard to its scope, its content, and the quality of the papers it publishes. However, editorial decisions at Cell Reports are made independently by its in-house editors.

Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism

Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism is a leading Reviews journal in the fields of metabolism and endocrinology. We publish polished, concise, highly read and cited articles of topics at the cutting edge covering basic, translational, and clinical aspects; from state-of-the-art treatments of endocrine diseases to new developments in molecular biology. Read about recent advancements in diabetesendocrine diseases, obesity, neuroendocrinology, immunometabolism, molecular and cellular biology, and a host of other areas.

TEM serves as an invaluable source of information for researchers, clinicians, lecturers, teachers and students. Reviews and Opinion articles form the foundation of each monthly issue. Reviews are invited from leading researchers in a specific field and objectively chronicle recent and important developments. Opinion articles provide a forum for debate and hypotheses. Our shorter pieces include Science & Society that highlight topical issues at the intersection of science, society and policy, Spotlights; that focus on exciting recent developments in the literature, and single-point hypotheses as Forum articles. Responses to previously published TEM content are welcome and encouraged in the form of Letters.

All articles are subjected to stringent peer-review, ensuring balance and accuracy.

Current Biology is a general journal that publishes original research across all areas of biology together with an extensive and varied set of editorial sections. A primary aim of the journal is to foster communication across fields of biology, both by publishing important findings of general interest from diverse fields and through highly accessible editorial articles that explicitly aim to inform non-specialists.

Current Biology publishes papers reporting findings in any area of biology that have sufficient claim to be of general interest—this could be, for example, because the advance is important for a specific field, or because it is intrinsically of wide interest to biologists generally. We have several formats for publishing original research (articles, reports, and correspondences); see our article types page for details.


Immunity publishes papers that report the most important advances in immunology research. The range of subjects includes, but is not limited to, immune cell development and senescence, signal transduction, gene regulation, innate and adaptive immunity, autoimmunity, infectious disease, allergy and asthma, transplantation, and tumor immunology. We also encourage the submission of manuscripts that pertain to related areas of research but have broad implications for immune responses in all aspects of human and experimental animal biology.
