Methods in Cell Science provides the forum for publishing the most up-to-date methods developed during the course of cell science research involving vertebrates, invertebrates, plants or single-celled prokaryotic or eukaryotic organisms. The research relevant to this journal is ordinarily conducted using in vitro systems rather than the whole animal or plant, an exception being research in which the animal or plant itself must be viewed microscopically. Papers are also accepted which describe the design or construction of equipment, media, or quality control procedures that are ancillary to cellular research. The journal covers methods in the complete spectrum of cell science. In most scientific journals, condensed descriptions of materials and methods lack the details required for readers to successfully duplicate the methods without prior experience with the method or consulting the authors. The unique aim of Methods in Cell Science is to provide all the necessary details so that absolute replication of methods is possible.
