Cancer Cell provides a high-profile forum for showcasing advances in cancer research, with a strong emphasis on translational research. Cancer Cell publishes monthly; papers are freely available starting 12 months after publication.
Molecular Cell publishes reports of novel results that are of unusual significance and of interest to researchers in the field. The journal focuses on analyses at the molecular level, with an emphasis on new mechanistic insights. The scope of the journal encompasses all of “traditional” molecular biology (including DNA replication, recombination and repair, gene expression, RNA processing, translation, and protein folding, modification, and degradation) as well as studies of the molecular interactions and mechanisms that underlie basic cellular processes. Some examples of such processes are signal transduction pathways, the cell cycle and checkpoints, and apoptosis.
Cell Published biweekly, Cell includes original research articles of exceptional significance in areas including molecular biology, biochemistry, cancer research, cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, neurobiology, plant biology, structural biology and virology.
