About Journal of Cell Science

Cell biology in its broadest sense aims to understand how a cell, the basic unit of life, converts information stored within its genome into form and function in both space and time. Over its long history, dating back to 1853, Journal of Cell Science has aimed to encompass all aspects of cell biology in order to inform not only the inner workings of individual cells, but also how they react and respond to each other and their environment.

Journal of Cell Science is all about new thinking and scientific excellence in cell biology.

Journal of Cell Science also supports the community through the provision of Travelling Fellowships for junior researchers, by organising our own Journal Meetings, and through our microscopy community site ‘FocalPlane’ and the associated ‘FocalPlane Network’, an international directory of researchers with microscopy expertise including developers, imaging scientists and bioimage analysts.

Please refer to the journal website.

Journal of Cell Science is a Transformative Journal with a commitment to transition towards Open Access. Our growth in Open Access content is powered by our Read & Publish agreements.

Travelling Fellowships

We offer funding to graduate students and post-docs wishing to make collaborative visits to other labs.

Cell Scientists to Watch interviews

Cell Scientists to Watch features talented researchers who have recently set up their own labs. These researchers talk about their lives in and out of the lab and the journeys that led them to where they are now.

Reducing the pain to publish

Life after a Travelling Fellowship

6 April 2021

With much of the world still ground to a halt, we’ve missed sharing stories from our Travelling Fellowship recipients. These grants provide early-career researchers with the means to visit international labs and while travel remains restricted, we decided to use this time to catch up with some of our previous recipients. …
