Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology is a broad-scope, interdisciplinary open-access journal, focusing on the fundamental processes of life, led by Prof Amanda Fisher and supported by a geographically diverse, high-quality editorial board.
The journal welcomes submissions on a wide spectrum of cell and developmental biology, covering intracellular and extracellular dynamics, with sections focusing on signaling, adhesion, migration, cell death and survival and membrane trafficking. Additionally, the journal offers sections dedicated to the cutting edge of fundamental and translational research in molecular medicine and stem cell biology.
With a collaborative, rigorous and transparent peer-review, the journal produces the highest scientific quality in both fundamental and applied research, and advanced article level metrics measure the real-time impact and influence of each publication.
Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology is member of the Committee on Publication Ethics.

Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology is composed of the following Specialty Sections:
The specialty sections of Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology welcome submission of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Systematic Review, Technology Report, Book Review, Brief Research Report, Data Report, Specialty Grand Challenge, Case Report, Clinical Trial and Policy and Practice Reviews.
When submitting a manuscript to Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology, authors must submit the material directly to one of the specialty sections. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the respective specialty section.
Articles published in the specialty sections above will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in the Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Cell and Developmental Biology.
