Cell Metabolism, launched in January 2005, is called the super emersion and one of the newer titles in the Cell Press family. The journal focuses on physiology, with an emphasis on understanding the molecular basis of how the body self-regulates in the face of change, and how disturbances in these balances can lead to disease. Advances in these fields take on a special importance given the increasing prevalence of obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and related maladies ("metabolic diseases") in the developed world. Created in response to what top scientists saw as a growing need for a specialized journal in this field, Cell Metabolism is run by in-house editorial and production teams with full responsibility for selecting and preparing content for publication.

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2013 impact factor of 16.747, ranking it second out of 121 journals in the category "Endocrinology & Metabolism."[1]
