Differentiation - ISSN 0301-4681
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.837 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.017 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 2.392 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

5 Year Impact Factor: 2.75 (2019) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

Differentiation is a multidisciplinary journal dealing with topics relating to cell differentiation, development, cellular structure and function, and cancer. Differentiation of eukaryotes at the molecular level and the use of transgenic and targeted mutagenesis approaches to problems of differentiation are of particular interest to the journal.

The journal will publish full-length articles containing original work in any of these areas. We will also publish reviews and commentaries on topics of current interest.

The principal subject areas the journal covers are:

• embryonic patterning and organogenesis
• human development and congenital malformation
• mechanisms of cell lineage commitment
• tissue homeostasis and oncogenic transformation
• establishment of cellular polarity
• stem cell differentiation
• cell reprogramming mechanisms
• stability of the differentiated state
• cell and tissue interactions in vivo and in vitro
• signal transduction pathways in development and differentiation
• carcinogenesis and cancer
• mechanisms involved in cell growth and division especially relating to cancer
• differentiation in regeneration and ageing
• therapeutic applications of differentiation processes
