Top 20 Cell Biology Journals By Impact Factor

Journal impact factor is a measure of research influence. As calculated by Journal Citation Reports: Science Edition (the source of this list) impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a year. A higher impact factor suggests a greater impact on the research in a particular field. The impact factor for 2015 is listed after each title. Journals available through the RU Library are listed in blue (click on the blue titles to explore the journal).
