Scope

Papers should be complete and essentially final reports. The subject area of FEBS Letters is broad. Articles can be classified under the following categories: Bioenergetics; Biophysics, Cell fate determination (cell cycle, cell differentiation, cell death); Chemical Biology; Computation Biology (genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics); Cytoskeleton; Development; Ezymology; Evolution; Genome organization and stability; Glycobiology; Immunology; Membrane Biology (membrane trafficking, vesicles, organelles); Metabolism; Microbiology; Molecular basis of disease; Neuroscience; Plant Biology; Protein Chemistry; Protein Homeostasis; Redox Biology; Regulation of gene expression; RNA Biology; Signal Transduction; Structural Biology; Synthetic Biology; Systems Biology; and Virology. As a general policy, FEBS Letters does not consider preliminary or fragmentary observations, cloning and sequencing of cDNA or genes that have previously been reported for other species, conventionally achieved expression or crystallization of proteins, description of the effect of a drug or reagent without elucidation of a detailed molecular mechanism, correlative studies or negative observations. Moreover, methodological papers are considered for publication only when they are truly novel and significant, and interesting to a broad readership. Join the conversation about this journal
Quartiles

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

SJR

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.
