International Journal of Cell Science

International Journal of Cell Science


Aim and scope

International Journal of Cell Science is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of Bioscience and Medical Sciences. Original research articles in areas including molecular biology, biochemistry, cancer research, cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, neurobiology, plant biology, structural biology and virology. Submitted articles are reviewed rapidly for both technical quality and general interest, and, if accepted, are published within five weeks. The journal features topical mini-review and review articles in which noted scientists discuss current progress in all areas of the life sciences.

Authors Guidelines

Each manuscript submission should be accompanied by an optional covering letter.

Title and Authorship Information

The following information should be included

Paper title

Full author names

Full institutional mailing addresses

Email addresses


The manuscript should contain an abstract. The abstract should not more than 260 words and must be citation-free

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate and succinct background.

Material and methods
Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

Results should be clear and concise and can be divided into subheadings.

This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate or better separated. Extensive citations and discussion of published literature is welcome but not necessary.


A short Conclusions section is to be presented and should be divided into specific points.

a. All graphs, diagrams and photographs should be referred to as Figure 1,2,3… and so on, with appropriate legends. Legends should contain sufficient detail to clearly allow future interpretation without reference to the text. Scale markers should be indicated in the photographs. Color plates are also welcome

Tables must be numbered in order of appearance and must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading.

It is the duty of authors to ensure accuracy of the reference. The references should be cited consecutively by numbers in square brackets and following numerical order. Journal abbreviations should follow Index Medicus style. All references should be cited within the text.

Ethical standards

Human experiments may be performed only in accordance with the ethical standards provided by the responsible committee of the institution or with Declaration. Animal experiments should follow the instructions for the care and use animal in experiment provided by the institution. Works that do not follow either the national or international standard will not be accepted for publication.


Open Access authors retain the copyrights of their papers, and all open access articles are distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited.

While the advice and information in this journal are believed to be true and accurate on the date of its going to press, neither the authors, the editors, nor the publisher can accept any legal responsibility for any errors or omissions that may be made. The publisher makes no warranty, express or implied, with respect to the material contained herein.

Open Access

Here authors are charged the APC, thereby paying for their readers to have free access of their published papers. This means their paper will be made freely available online immediately upon publication.


You can pay APC charges using online with a credit card, or request an invoice by email.

Manuscript length
Papers should be of a length appropriate for the amount of information they contain. Failure to restrict the length of manuscripts, especially Introduction and Discussion sections, can negatively influence the reviewers’ and the editor’s decisions.

Manuscripts should be written using clear and concise English, with English standard spelling and conventions. Non-English speaking authors are advised to enlist the assistance of a native English speaker, familiar with biomedical terminology. The editors reserve the right to return without review manuscripts that can not be adequately assessed due to a poor standard of English. For Biochemical and Bacterial terminology follow the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) recommendations Genotypes must be italicized; phenotypes should not.

Units of measurement and abbreviations

Units of measurement should be in Systéme International (SI) units and those recommended by the IUPAC should be used wherever possible. Standard units of measurements and chemical symbols of elements may be used without definition in the body of the paper.
Abbreviations should be given in brackets after their first mention in the text, and used thereafter.
For centrifugation rates give g values rather than rpm, as this will vary according to rotor diameter.

Editorial evaluation and revision

Full-length papers are in general submitted to a minimum of two referees for peer review. The comments or suggestions of the referees together with the decision of editor will be sent to the author(s) for revision. When submitting a revised manuscript, the author(s) should reply to the comments of the referees. The revised manuscript together with the comments should be returned in duplicate within two weeks.


Manuscripts should be submitted using the online system. The manuscript can be on any of the following format- word-processing tool, only electronic PDF (.pdf) or Word (.doc, .docx, .rtf) files can be submitted. There is no page limit. If for some technical reason submission through the MTS is not possible, the author can contact our editorial office through email
