The 1st most cited journal in Plant Sciences
Cell biologists capitalize on a diverse set of approaches — including microscopy, biochemistry, biophysics, genetics and genomics, and systems biology — to define how cell structure and function contribute to plants’ physiology, development, and interactions with the environment. Plant Cell Biology welcomes outstanding submissions applying this broad array of tools to areas such as cell physiology and structure, the cytoskeleton, organelle structure and function, membrane dynamics and transport, the cell wall, environmental responses, signaling, the cell cycle, and techniques development, in an effort to understand plant function through cellular and molecular processes.
Indexed in: PubMed, PubMed Central, Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, AGRICOLA
PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Plant Cell Biology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective and Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Plant Cell Biology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Plant Cell Biology 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 all 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 Plant Science.
