Welcoming basic and translational aspects of cell communication and signaling research that influence cellular morphology, structure, and function in both health and disease, Cell Communication and Signaling aims to uncover new information on both intracellular signaling mechanisms as well as complex interactions and behavior between cells. With a fast time to decision and publication, this journal is an excellent source for the latest and cutting edge research on cellular and molecular signaling pathways.

    Aims and Scope


    Cell Communication and Signaling is an open access journal that encompasses all basic and translational aspects of cellular communications and signaling pathways in normal and pathological conditions. Genetic and epigenetic changes, cell-cell, cell-environment and cell-pathogen interactions often modulate or even override programmed patterns of cell behaviour. Cell signaling is therefore not only critical for normal cell growth and development, but abnormal signals are associated with numerous human diseases.

    Cell Communication and Signaling strongly encourages reports of studies incorporating molecular, morphological, biochemical, structural and cell biology approaches, as well as interdisciplinary work and innovative in silico, in vitro and in vivo models that facilitate investigations of cell signaling pathways, networks and cell behaviour.
