ASCB publications include Molecular Biology of the Cell, CBE Life Sciences Education, the print and online ASCB Newsletter, The Post, and the COMPASS Blog.


Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBoC) is published twice per month online by the American Society for Cell Biology. MBoC publishes original and scholarly research reports that contribute significantly to the scientific understanding of the molecular basis of cell structure and function. MBoC serves as a forum for presenting in full the significant advances that arise from a combination of experimental approaches (e.g., biochemical, genetic, morphological, and immunochemical). Articles include supplementary datasets, video data, and previously unpublished data and methods that support the conclusions drawn. Accepted articles are published rapidly after acceptance through MBoC In Press.


CBE—Life Sciences Education (LSE), is a peer-reviewed journal of life science education research and evidence-based practice published by the ASCB. Online and completely free, LSE emphasizes teaching innovations and evidence of their effectiveness and is designed for educators at all levels and across all life science disciplines.
