The Medical Journal of Cell Biology (MJCB) is published by Sciendo owned by De Gruyter and held by the Foundation for Cell Biology and Molecular Biology. The MJCB publishes articles in open access system in English only, four times per year, predominantly in but not limited to the field of cell biology, cell and tissue engineering, as well as translational medical studies. The journal accepts both original works, which are an innovative contribution to the field of science and critical reviews relevant to the latest literature, not older than five years. Periodically, Editor in Chief, with the permission of the Managing Editor, accepts selected Clinical Case Reports.


Medical Journal of Cell Biology (ISSN 2544-3577) is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed, open access journal. Our predominant aim is to provide an accessible but specialized platform for researches in the field of cell biology, cell and tissue engineering, as well as translational medical studies. Manuscripts related to regenerative and reconstructive medicine are especially anticipated. Each presented methodology must be precisely described to enable reproducibility of the results. However there is no limit for the length of the manuscripts, as well as for the number of included figures and tables. MJCB provides efficient review process, followed by prompt publication of latest scientific discoveries to enrich the knowledge of researchersacross the globe.

The MJCB accepts the following types of publications: research articles, review articles, clinical case reports, letters, editorials and short communications.


The Medical Journal of Cell Biology accepts publications covering the following thematic areas:

  • Biology of human, animal and plant cells
  • Biology of stem cells
  • Biology of microbes
  • Biotechnology and bioengineering of cells and tissues
  • Nanotechnology
  • Reconstructive and regenerative medicine
  • Molecular biology
  • Carcinogenesis and pharmacotherapy
