Biology of the Cell is a peer-reviewed scientific journal in the field of cell biology, cell physiology, and molecular biology of animal and plant cells, microorganisms and protists. Topics covered include development, neurobiology, and immunology, as well as theoretical or biophysical modelling.

The journal is currently published monthly by the Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Société Française des Microscopies and the Société de Biologie Cellulaire de France.[1]

History[edit]

The journal first appeared in 1962 and was originally titled Journal de Microscopie (1962–1974). In 1975, the related Journal de Microscopie et de Spectroscopie Électroniques was started[2] and the journal was retitled Journal de Microscopie et de Biologie Cellulaire (ISSN 0395-9260; 1975–1976).[3] It was later retitled Biologie Cellulaire (ISSN 0399-0311; 1977–1980), becoming Biology of the Cell in 1981.[4][5] The journal was published by Elsevier between 1986 and 2004.[1]

Articles were originally published in either English or French, with summaries in both languages.[2]
