Important note

With fright and great disappointment, we have learned that some papers published 2017 and 2018 in Cellular Physiology & Biochemistry might have been produced by so called “papermills” and not by the authors listed. This is absolutely unacceptable. We are currently investigating these manuscripts thoroughly and in close collaboration with Karger, the publisher owning the rights, following the COPE-Guidelines (

We are working very closely together to clarify all issues related to this potential fraud. In addition, Karger has informed us that they approached the other affected Publishers exchanging their results.

Scope & Aims

Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry is a multidisciplinary scientific forum dedicated to advancing the frontiers of basic cellular research. It addresses scientists from both the physiological and biochemical disciplines as well as related fields such as genetics, molecular biology, pathophysiology, pathobiochemistry and cellular toxicology & pharmacology. Original papers and reviews on the mechanisms of intracellular transmission, cellular metabolism, cell growth, differentiation and death, ion channels and carriers, and the maintenance, regulation and disturbances of cell volume are presented. Appearing monthly under peer review, Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry takes an active role in the concerted international effort to unravel the mechanisms of cellular function.
