Aims & Scope

Cellular & Molecular Immunology is a monthly journal from the Chinese Society of Immunology and the University of Science and Technology of China. Covering both basic immunology research and clinical applications, Cellular & Molecular Immunology provides the latest information and advancements in our understanding of the immunological response of the host, both in vitro and in vivo.

The journal publishes Articles, Review Articles, Mini Reviews and Short Communications and Correspondences in all areas of cellular and molecular immunology, including but not limited to:

  • clinical immunology
  • comparative immunology
  • immunobiology
  • immunogenetics
  • immunological techniques
  • immunopathology
  • immunopharmacology
  • infection immunology
  • neuroimmunology
  • transplantation immunology
  • tumor immunology
  • veterinary immunology

As China's first English-language immunology journal, Cellular & Molecular Immunology is designed to serve both the Chinese and international communities as a vehicle to rapidly disseminate the latest studies in this field. The journal welcomes submissions that explore novel ideas or un- or contra-orthodox approaches, as long as they are underpinned by conventional scientific practice and present falsifiable hypotheses that are tested with empirical methods and evidence.

Manuscripts must provide evidence that can be critically evaluated, and where applicable:

  • define disorders and clinical symptoms by standard clinical terms (e.g. allergy, asthma, lupus, etc.)
  • deem results 'significant' only using standard statistical methods in biological effects/outcomes studies
  • use consistent and defined amounts and mixtures of herbal formulas, or use purified monomer extracts.

Terms that may be ambiguous to the broad audience of the journal should be clearly defined within the manuscript.
