Open Access Cell biology Journals

A list of Open Access Cell biology journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Cell biology is scientific discipline that studies cells

Open Access journals publish papers that are free to the reader to download. OA papers have undergone peer review and are not more or less stringent than papers in closed journals — the main difference is in the business model.

We hope this list of Cell biology OA journals will be helpful for you in deciding where to publish your Cell biology manuscript.
We have thousands of high-impact factor Cell biology journals in our list.Rather than just the top hits Cell biology journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Cell biology journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Cell biology venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Cell biology journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access is an international movement that aims to provide free and open online access to academic information, such as publications and data
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
If a journal has a relevance of “100”, that means that the journal is fully related to the concept it is listed under. If, on the other hand, a journal has a relevance of “0”, that means that the journal doesn’t have any relation to the topic it is listed under. So Nutrition might have a low relevance when included in Open Computer Science Journals
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations represent the times that works have cited papers under this journal. In our case, we obtain this data from OpenAlex, an open catalog of scholarly papers. It's hard to say how accurate it is but it can give you a general idea on how prestigious the journal is. The more work that have cited it, the better.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
If you are looking for an author or paper, you can simply type it in the search box above to see your results. If you'd like to see a similar list to this one, check
How can I publish my paper on
Our focus at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
Authors usually have to pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review, publishing, and dissemination of published papers in a given journal.
What are the different Open Access types?
The most common types are “Green Open Access”, “Gold Open Access” and “Hybrid Open Access”.
