Scope Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry: An International Journal for Chemical Biology in Health and Disease publishes original research papers and short communications in all areas of biomedical sciences, emphasizing novel findings relevant to the biochemical and molecular basis of cellular function in physiological and pathological conditions, as well as the mechanisms of action of hormones and chemical agents. Coverage includes membrane transport, metabolic processes, signal transduction, receptor mechanisms, immune responses, secretory processes, and cytoskeletal function. This journal also deals with cellular regulation, cellular death and regeneration, translational medicine as well as structure-function relationships in the cell. In addition to articles on original research, the journal publishes State-of-the-art Reviews. Specific subjects covered by Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry include cellular metabolism, cell biology, biochemistry of inflammation, protein biochemistry, lipid biochemistry, membrane biology, molecular biology, and regulatory mechanisms.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

External Cites per Doc 
Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
