Aims & Scope

StemJournal is an international, multidisciplinary publication for communicating outstanding stem cell research, including basic biology, clinical applications, disease modeling, computational and systems biology, and data science. It promises to be open new scientific contributions from the many fields of research on stem cells. The journal publishes original, peer-reviewed content covering a wide range of topics related to stem cell research, including research reports,  review articles, protocols, and more. This is an online journal that follows an open access model – visit at stemjnl.org. View the full Aims & Scope on the journal website here.

StemJournal is a sister publication to the stem cell community portal StemBook – visit at stembook.orgStemJournal and StemBook are the first components in IOS Press' forthcoming StemHub (read our related press releases, herehere). New components include: StemMeets (meeting abstracts) and StemRxiv (preprints).
