Aims and scope

Cell Reports Medicine is a premium open-access journal from Cell Press publishing cutting-edge research in translational and clinical biomedical sciences that inform and influence human health and medicine.

The content published in Cell Reports Medicine reaches a broad range of scientists and clinicians across the spectrum of medical disciplines, ensuring that your work will be both visible and accessible. The journal publishes original research that ranges from exciting concepts in human biology, health, and disease to all phases of clinical work. We encourage submissions featuring innovative ideas that open up new directions in clinical research and practice, as well as studies that provide critical information that enriches our understanding of current standards of care in diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. This includes, but is not limited to, translational studies, clinical trials in all areas of medicine including long-term trial follow-ups as well as work in genomics, biomarker discovery, and developments in technology that contribute to diagnostics, treatment, and healthcare. Studies based on vertebrate model organisms also fall within the scope of the journal, provided that the results are directly relevant to human health and disease.

Like our sister journal Cell Reports, we will consider impactful, single-point papers called reports, in addition to longer articles. Large datasets, techniques, and tools for the community can also be considered under the article format. We will also publish reviews covering recent literature in emerging and active fields.

The professional in-house scientific editors at Cell Reports Medicine work closely with authors, reviewers, and the journal's editorial board to ensure exemplary editorial process, fair and robust peer review, and rapid dissemination and communication of your research.
