    Aims and Scope


    Cell Division is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that encompasses all the molecular aspects of cell cycle control and cancer, cell growth, proliferation, survival, differentiation, signalling, gene transcription, protein synthesis, genome integrity, chromosome stability, centrosome duplication, DNA damage and DNA repair.

    Cell Division provides an online forum for the cell-cycle community that aims to publish articles on all exciting aspects of cell-cycle research and to bridge the gap between models of cell cycle regulation, development, and cancer biology. This forum is driven by specialized and timely research articles, reviews and commentaries focused on this fast moving field, providing an invaluable tool for cell-cycle biologists.

    Cell Division publishes articles in areas which includes, but not limited to:

    • DNA replication, cell fate decisions, cell cycle & development
    • Cell proliferation, mitosis, spindle assembly checkpoint, ubiquitin mediated degradation
    • DNA damage & repair
    • Apoptosis & cell death
