We are proud to announce the launch of Stem Cell Investigation (SCI), an open access, peer-reviewed scientific journal dedicated to stem cell research and application. SCI will cover basic, translational, and clinical research on all aspects of stem cells. It will contain over ten categories of papers including research articles, reviews, clinical or laboratory protocols, and commentaries on embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, adult tissue-specific stem/progenitor cells, cancer stem-like cells, stem cell niche, stem cell technology, stem cell based drug discovery, and regenerative medicine.
SCI is a free access journal because this is the best way to spread knowledge and information, thereby accelerating further research and discovery. The fast track submission feature of the journal allows authors to submit previously reviewed manuscripts in their original formats, which will greatly accelerate the publication process. We hope SCI will appeal to research investigators and readers from a broad range of medical and scientific backgrounds.
During April 6th to 9th, 2014, the journal was exhibited at the 105th American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) annual meeting in San Diego, USA (Booth 633 at Publisher’s Pavilion).
