After 17 years publishing with Springer The Journal of Cell Communication and Signaling (JCCS) is now published as a Gold Open Access Journal by Wiley

JCCS publishes fundamental and translational research on intercellular and intracellular signaling pathways.

Details about the submission procedures are available at

Updated JCCS Aims and Scope

JCCS provides a forum for publications reporting fundamental and translational research in the fields of communication between cells and their surrounding environments, with a particular focus on intracellular and intercellular signaling pathways, and how cell behavior  contributes to the installation and maintenance of pathological states.

JCCS welcomes original studies dealing with all aspects of remote Cell Communication and Signaling including:

  • Biological and biochemical studies of extracellular matrix, matricellular proteins, microvesicles, autocrine/paracrine mediators, and their signaling mechanisms in the context of tissue homeostasis and regeneration.
  • The identification and characterization of membrane and extracellular receptors and their ligands
  • Studies incorporating bioinformatics,computational approaches, proteomics, transcriptomics, molecular modeling, combinatorial signaling, and spatial (tissue level) aspects of signaling

Review articles addressing the topics discussed above are also considered.

The first issue of JCCS published by Wiley will be labeled as Issue 1 of Volume 18, in continuation of previous numbering.
