Cell Press journals continue to deliver high impact
Date:6/29/2012

Latest annual citation reports confirm Cell Press delivers highly valued, highly cited research and reviews to the scientific community it serves

We are delighted to report that the new impact factors align with community perception and confirm that Cell Press continues to publish the highest impact research and reviews in the biomedical sciences, according to the latest Journal Citation Reports published by Thomas Reuters.

Cell Press's flagship journal Cell received an impressive impact factor of 32.403. Showing strong and steady growth, Cell's impact factor has increased by 9% since 2005, maintaining its status as the premier research journal in its field. Cell is currently ranked the number one research journal in the 'Cell Biology' and 'Biochemistry & Molecular Biology' categories.

Over 70% of journals within the Trends review journal series increased in impact factor this year, with significant growth across several life science disciplines. Top performers include Trends in Cognitive Science, which increased by 30% to 12.586, Trends in Immunology, which grew 9% to 10.403, and Trends in Ecology and Evolution, which rose 9% to 15.748. Published by Cell Press since 2007, Trends journals offer the unparalleled level of in-house editorial expertise that exists within all of the Cell Press journals, with the support of committed and enthusiastic editorial boards and an extensive range of fair and knowledgeable reviewers.

The substantial increase for Trends in Cognitive Sciences is also reflected in the other Cell Press neuroscience journals. Neuron, which has been publishing leading neuroscience research and reviews since 1988, increased by 5% to 14.736, and Trends in Neurosciences is up from 13.320 to 14.235.

"We are very pleased to see the scientific community's response to the work published in Cell Press journals. We are grateful to the authors who entrust their best work to us and to the reviewers who provide invaluable advice and guidance," said Emilie Marcus, Editor-in-Chief and CEO of Cell Press. "Cell Press editors work hard to maintain the high editorial standards expected of them by our authors and readers, and understand the importance of engaging with, and being accessible to, the life science research community which we are all proud to be a part of."

Cell Press's more recent journal launches, aimed at expanding our scope into translational biomedical areas, continue to maintain their influence within the scientific community. Launched in 2007, Cell Stem Cell has an impact factor of 25.421 and has been named a "Rising Star (http://sciencewatch.com/inter/jou/2011/11julCellStemCell/)" in the field of Clinical Medicine by Thomson Reuters. This means that, in 2011, Cell Stem Cell had the highest percentage growth in citations in its field. Celebrating a decade of high impact publication in 2012, Cancer Cell has a well established impact factor of 26.566.
