Scope Cell Communication and Signaling (CCS) is a peer-reviewed and open access scientific journal that publishes original research, reviews and commentaries with a focus on cellular signaling pathways in normal and pathological conditions. CCS encourages reports of studies incorporating molecular, morphological, biochemical, structural and cell biology approaches, as well as interdisciplinary work and innovative in silico, in vitro and in vivo models that facilitate investigations of cell signaling pathways, networks and cell behaviour. Beginning in January of 2019, Cell Communication and Signaling (CCS) is pleased to announce their affiliation with the International Cell Death Society. The journal encourages submissions in all aspects of cell death, that include apoptotic and non-apoptotic mechanisms of cell death, cell death in model systems, autophagy, clearance of dying cells, as well as the immunological and pathological consequences of dying cells in the tissue microenvironment.

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.

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.
