In this post, apart from Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology Impact Factor, I have tried to compile all the necessary information a research scholar would seek before publishing an article in the journal.

- Cell adhesion (adhesion molecules, extracellular matrix)
- Cytoskeletal dynamics (cell motility, molecular motors, actin, microtubules, intermediate filaments)
- Developmental and stem cell biology
- Cell growth and division (cell cycle, cytokinesis, cancer)
- Cell death (apoptosis, necrosis, autophagy, ageing)
- Cellular microbiology (host–pathogen interactions)
- Plant cell biology
- Gene expression (transcription, splicing, RNA stability, translation, RNA interference, circadian rhythms)
- Nucleic-acid metabolism (DNA repair, recombination and replication, RNA biogenesis)
- Chromosome biology and nuclear architecture (chromatin, chromosome structure, transposons)
- Nuclear transport (import and export of molecules to and from the nucleus)
- Protein structure and metabolism (structure-function relationships, quality control, post-translational modifications, folding, translocation, degradation)
- Bioenergetics (respiration, photosynthesis, organelle biochemistry)
- Technology and techniques (imaging, proteomics, systems biology, bioinformatics)
Impact Factor of Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology Journal
Impact Factor (IF) or often called journal impact factor (JIF) is an index provided by an analytics company named Clarivate. The impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of times the articles are cited in the last two years by the total number of publications in those two years.
- Total Citations in 2020 and 2021 = 500
- Total Number of Publications in 2020 and 2021 = 100
- Impact Factor of the Journal in 2022 = 500/100 = 5
