Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the publication of the first titles in the new Cell Press Reviews book series, making review content from Cell Press journals more accessible to researchers without institutional access and to others interested in learning more about the topics at a high level. The first book to publish, Cell Press Reviews: Core Concepts in Cell Biology, will be presented at the upcoming American Society for Cell Biology annual meeting in New Orleans, LA, December 14–18, Booth #224.

"We are delighted to present these high-impact, comprehensive reviews in book format for the first time," said Emilie Marcus, CEO of Cell Press and Editor of Cell. "Our editorial team carefully selected review articles that not only provide an overview of recent advances in these fields, but also look to what is coming next in these areas."

Cell Press's in-house journal editors, who are subject-matter experts, curated the high-quality, high-impact journal review articles into accessible books on the current state and future direction of cell biology, cancer therapeutics and stem cells to model and treat disease.

"Working together with Cell Press to make its definitive reviews available in book form supports our ongoing goal to offer high-quality content that makes researchers, students, educators and practitioners more productive."
