  • Thorough coverage of emerging issues in stem cells
  • Includes embryonic and adult stem cells, and related lineage and cloning concerns
  • Presents reviews covering clinical, regulatory and ethical aspects of stem cells

Stem Cell Reviews and Reports (SCRR) covers contemporary and emerging areas in stem cells by publication of reviews, original data reports (full reports and short reports), protocols, novel hypotheses and commentaries. The scope related to stem cells is broad and includes topics in stem cell biology covering basic, clinical, biotechnology, regulatory, and ethical aspects of embryonic and adult stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, fate choice, specific lineage and cloning issues, translational studies, and diseases where stem cell anomalies play a key role and related matters. Original articles are expected to provide novel insights based on new data. Reviews, commentaries and hypotheses should provide syntheses of current concepts in the field and discuss emerging issues and controversies; the nature of the topic or idea being discussed will dictate appropriate choice of article type. Protocols will help accelerate studies in the field, by providing practical and step by step descriptions of established or emerging protocols and techniques of utility for both established and novice investigator.

In 2009, Stem Cell Reviews changed its title to Stem Cell Reviews and Reports. Each journal name was issued a separate 2010 Impact Factor but the correct, combined 2010 Impact Factor is 3.766.

    Close

    The purpose of Stem Cell Reviews and Reports is to cover contemporary and emerging areas in stem cell research and regenerative medicine. The journal will consider for publication:

     i) solicited or unsolicited reviews of topical areas of stem cell biology that highlight, critique and synthesize recent important findings in the field

    ii) full length and short reports presenting original experimental work

     iii) translational stem cell studies describing results of clinical trials using stem cells as therapeutics

    iv) papers focused on diseases of stem cells

    v) hypothesis and commentary articles as opinion-based pieces in which authors can propose a new theory, interpretation of a controversial area in stem cell biology, or a stem cell biology question or paradigm. These articles contain more speculation than reviews, but they should be based on solid rationale.

    vi) protocols as peer-reviewed procedures that provide step-by-step descriptions, outlined in sufficient detail, so that both experts and novices can apply them to their own research

    vii) letters to the editor and correspondence.

    For more detailed information including article length, online submission and  more please visit our web page.

     

    In order to facilitate this exchange of scientific information and exciting novel ideas, the journal has created five thematic sections, focusing on:

     i) the role of adult stem cells in tissue regeneration,

    ii) progress in research on induced pluripotent stem cells, embryonic stem cells and mechanism governing embryogenesis and tissue development,

    iii) the role of microenvironment and extracellular microvesicles in directing the fate of stem cells

    iv) mechanisms of stem cell trafficking, stem cell mobilization and homing with special emphasis on hematopoiesis

    v) the role of stem cells in aging processes and cancerogenesis.

     

    Stem Cell Reviews and Reports now publishes six issues a year and will be open to new discoveries and challenging ideas. We encourage you to submit your best work so that, if accepted, it will become an immediate and important contribution to the worldwide scientific community.
