The journal Cell and Tissue Biology publishes research on animal and plant cells, in vivo and in cell culture, which offers insight into the structure and functions of the live cell as a whole. Typically, the journal publishes articles on biology of free-living and parasitic protists, which unlike Metazoa, are eukariotic organisms at the cellular level of organization.
Coverage spans a broad range of cell research, including morphology, biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, molecular biology, immunology. The journal presents original experimental studies, theoretical articles suggesting novel principles and approaches, presentations of new hypotheses, reviews of major developments in cell biology and discussions.
Cell and Tissue Biology is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 30 experts. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 15 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 30 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 15%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.
Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
