When you choose to publish with PLOS, your research makes an impact. Make your work accessible to all, without restrictions, and accelerate scientific discovery with options like preprints and published peer review that make your work more Open.

Cell Biology

Empowering a community publishing articles in all areas of Cell Biology, including Cell Death, Cytosketal Dynamics, Autophagy and Proteostasis, Cell cycle and growth, Cell Adhesion and Motility, Cell signalling, Cellular Trafficking, Organelle biology, and much more.

To date, over 7,392 articles in Cell Biology have been published with more than 148,169 citations from authors in 83 countries.

Join thousands of your peers who choose PLOS to represent their Cell Biology research.

Our community is a collaboration between authors, editors and reviewers. In-house editorial subject experts work alongside section editors, academic editors, and journal editorial boards to provide accurate assessment that readers can trust.

We put research and researchers first, collaborating to make science, and the process of publishing science, fair, equitable, and accessible for the whole community.​

Autophagy and Proteostasis

In this PLOS ONE collection, our guest editors have picked research articles that provide insight into the molecular and cellular machinery and mechanisms that regulate autophagy and other proteostasis pathways.

I began to seriously think about open science when I started my own lab and had complete freedom on where I could submit manuscripts. I believe strongly that all research should be available to all people, especially when that research is funded by the public.
