Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 2.393 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): 4.368 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: 8.572 (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.

Matrix Biology (established in 1980 as Collagen and Related Research) is a cutting-edge journal that is devoted to publishing the latest results in matrix biology research. We welcome articles that reside at the nexus of understanding the cellular and molecular pathophysiology of the extracellular matrix. Matrix Biology focusses on solving elusive questions, opening new avenues of thought and discovery, and challenging longstanding biological paradigms.

Papers considered for review, and ultimately for publication, must contain substantial advances supported by mechanistic and functional insights germane to important physiological or pathological processes. These aspects are crucial and required for publication.

Matrix Biology welcomes original research articles, brief reports, commentaries, (mini) reviews, and announcements. Please view our Guide for Authors for more information.
