2019 As an example, they provide a complete image of a zebrafish embryo. In January 2001, in response to calls from the research community to provide free access to the results of publicly funded research, JCB was one of the first journals to release its primary research content to the public 6 months after publication. Journal of Cell Biology and Cell Metabolism with the ISSN: 2381-1943, is an international peer reviewed open access online journal which focus to unravel fundamental and advanced aspects of cell. Please note: time to first decision includes all original submissions (planning research, planning education, commentary) in calendar days (avg.) These metrics represent a variety of methods for measuring the citation impact of published research on a journal level. He noted that it should be the responsibility of the research community to develop standards of data integrity, but JCB had taken on this role because no such standards existed when JCB first confronted the problem in 2002. This process is fulfilled through a collaboration between integrin molecules and connexin channels. Time to first decision is defined as time from submission to first decision for all original submissions decided within the prior calendar year. [17], According to the Journal Citation Reports, it received a 2013 impact factor of 9.786, ranking it 21st out of 185 journals in the category "Cell Biology".[20]. Total citations made in the JCR year to content published in a journal in the prior two years are divided by the number of articles and reviews published by the journal in the prior two years. The instructions to authors described the scope of the journal, "The Journal of Biophysical and Biochemical Cytology is designed to provide a common medium for the publication of morphological, biophysical, and biochemical investigations on cells, their components, and their products. All content was free to the public during that first year of online publication. [32] This raised awareness among the public and among other biomedical journals of the potential value of image screening by journal editors including: Many journals have adopted JCB's guidelines on image manipulation in their instructions to authors, but only a few are enforcing them with full screening of all images for evidence of manipulation. An update to the software in August 2012 allows the user to smoothly transition from 1 millimeter to 1 micrometer magnification of images assembled from optical and electron microscopes. [38] The letter, along with subsequent concerns about digital data raised by other scientific publishers, provided the impetus for a study by the Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy (a joint unit of the NAS, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine) to examine the issue of data integrity. Dr. Behl is member of the scientific boards of several foundations, i.a. Readers can access and download the articles freely. Access to society journal content varies across our titles.

Counts for acceptances, rejections, and acceptance ratios are based on the date the decision is made, not the date the manuscript was submitted. Mike Rossner presented a talk to the Committee at an open meeting in April 2007, in which he described the experience of JCB and the other Rockefeller University Press journals in handling image manipulation. 5.681. 25% of all accepted manuscripts have at least one figure that must be remade because of "inappropriate" manipulation, that is the manipulation does not affect the interpretation of the data, but it violates the journal's guidelines for presenting image data.
