10th Anniversary of Cells

The year 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of Cells, a peer-reviewed open access journal on the science and technology of cell biology. Cells has published more than 5400 papers from more than 29,940 authors. More than 10,410 reviewers have submitted at least one review report. We value the contributions made by authors and reviewers. To celebrate this 10th anniversary, we are arranging a series of special content and events. We hope you can join us to celebrate this milestone of our journal and enjoy the collection below.
