Beginning in mid-February 2008, the 1997-2007 online version of the Science Watch newsletter, ESI-Topics.com, and in-cites.com, will all be featured together on the redesigned ScienceWatch.com. All previous content from the three sites will be permanently archived, and remain accessible from any existing bookmarks to the archived pages. No new content will be added to this site. Updates and new content (updated biweekly) are available at ScienceWatch.com now.

Profile of the Journal:
Molecular and Cellular Biology


In our analysis of Gene Silencing research, the journal Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) ranked at #12 among journals publishing in this field over the past decade, with 36 papers cited a total of 829 times. According to the ISI Essential Science Indicators Web product, Molecular and Cellular Biology ranked #3 in citations, and has published 8,554 papers cited a total of 359,409 times to date among the 133 top-performing journals in Molecular Biology & Genetics. The journal's most-cited paper in this field, "D-Type Cyclin-Dependent Kinase-Activity In Mammalian-Cells," (Molecular and Cellular Biology 14[3]: 2066-2076, March 1994), has been cited 761 times to date. Recently, ESI Special Topics visited the Website of this highly-cited journal and 1captured unedited bytes of their description for this profile.


Molecular and Cellular Biology is published by the American Society for Microbiology.

Researchers find Molecular and Cellular Biology to be an authoritative source of fundamental knowledge and new developments in all aspects of the molecular biology of eukaryotic cells. Essential to all scientists in the field, MCB publishes work on microbial as well as higher organisms and on viral systems where the emphasis is clearly on the cell.

Scope includes:

  • Guest Commentaries 
  • Minireviews 
  • Gene Expression 
  • Transcriptional Regulation 
  • Cell Growth and Development 
  • Nucleocytoplasmic Communication 
  • Cell and Organelle Structure and Assembly 
  • DNA Dynamics and Chromosome Structure 
  • Mammalian Genetic Models with Minimal or Complex Phenotypes 

Twice monthly. 8,800 pages in 2004. Print ISSN: 0270-7306. Online ISSN: 1098-5549.
