Current Opinion in Cell Biology (COCEBI) publishes authoritative, comprehensive, and systematic reviews. COCEBI helps specialists keep up to date with a clear and readable synthesis on current advances cell biology. Expert authors annotate the most interesting papers from the expanding volume of information published today, saving valuable time and giving the reader insight on areas of importance. Current Opinion in Cell Biology is part of the Current Opinion and Research (CO+RE) suite of journals and is a companion to the new primary research, open access journal, Current Research in Cell Biology (CRCBIO). CO+RE journals leverage the Current Opinion legacy—of editorial excellence, high-impact, and global reach—to ensure they are a widely read resource that is integral to scientists’ workflow. Current Opinion in Cell Biology serves as an invaluable source of information for researchers, lecturers, teachers, professionals, policy makers and students. The subject of cell biology is divided into six themed sections, each of which is reviewed once a year. Themes include cell architecture; cell signaling; cell nucleus; membrane trafficking; cell dynamics; and cell differentiation and disease.

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Current Opinion in Cell Biology


The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications


Current Opinion in Cell Biology

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
