Open Access Cell Journals

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

Cell is the basic structural and functional unit of all organisms

A journal article is 'open access' when there are no financial, legal or technical barriers to accessing it - that is to say when anyone can read, download, distribute, print, and search it.

Hopefully this list of Cell Open Access journals will make it easier for you to decide where to publish your Cell manuscript.
We made this list which includes all the high-impact factor Cell journals that might be relevant to your field of study.Instead of displaying the most commonly known Cell journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Cell journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Cell 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 journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access (OA) is a set of principles and practices through which research is freely distributed online
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
Relevance is used to quantify the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, “Brain Stimulation” has a relevance of “24” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it is somewhat related to the field of Computer Science.
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?
To search for more open journal lists, look on
How can I publish my paper on
Our aim at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not publish any papers. What we do is that once a paper has been published, we index it in so that more people can find and access a journal article.
What is an APC?
Article Processing Charges (APCs) are charged to authors of scholarly articles during the publication process. APCs are used by open access journals.
What are the different Open Access types?
The most common types are “Green Open Access”, “Gold Open Access” and “Hybrid Open Access”.
