New Cell Titles Further ScienceDirect Offering


This year, Elsevier, a leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical (STM) information, is adding two new, groundbreaking Cell Press titles - Cell Host & Microbe and Cell Stem Cell – to its platform, ScienceDirect. To celebrate the launch, access to the first three issues of both journals is complimentary for three months.

A requisite addition to the Cell Press collection on ScienceDirect, which includes leading titles Cell and Neuron, Cell Host & Microbe and Cell Stem Cell will be valuable resources for specialists in microbiology and stem cell biology.

Cell Host & Microbe - available on ScienceDirect from March 14, 2007 - will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and concepts between scientists studying the microbe with those studying the host immune and cellular response upon colonization or infection by a microbe. The journal will publish findings related to microbes, from molecular and cellular biology to translational studies, with particular emphasis on the interface between the microbe and its host. The unifying theme will be the integrated study of microbes in conjunction and communication with each other, their host and the cellular environment they live in.

Cell Stem Cell - available on ScienceDirect from June 6, 2007 - will cover the entire spectrum of stem cell biology. The journal’s goal will be to provide a forum for the publication of leading stem cell research and the exchange of ideas between scientists working in the burgeoning field of stem cell biology. Cell Stem Cell will be the official affiliated journal of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR).

“Continuing to build on the extensive collection of high-quality content already available on ScienceDirect is one of our highest priorities,” said Joep Verheggen, Director of ScienceDirect. “I am particularly pleased with the forthcoming inclusion of Cell Host & Microbe and Cell Stem Cell because they meet the immediate needs of scientists working in the growing fields of microbiology and stem cell biology: not only will these titles cover important new developments, they will also help inspire new findings by enabling scientists to work together and share ideas.”
