Perspectives

Science Signaling Perspectives are more limited in scope than Science Signaling Reviews and emphasize the opinions or viewpoints of their authors. Most Perspectives are solicited by the editors, but we welcome your suggestions of potential topics and authors. Authors should refer to the Information for Authors for general information about manuscript preparation and the journal's policies.

The focus of a Perspectives may be either a Viewpoint, Book Review, Meeting Report, or Technical Commentary:

  • Viewpoints- opinions about recently published scientific papers on topics in signal transduction
  • Book Reviews- review and commentary on recently published books of interest to the signaling community
  • Meeting Reports- summaries of meetings and conferences highlighting the issues relevant to signal transduction
  • Technical Commentary- discussions advantages, disadvantages, and caveats related to the application of various methods to the study of signal transduction

Use the Advanced Search limited to the Perspectives section, to find Perspective articles. Alternatively, the Perspectives and the Perspectives Archive can be accessed from the Literature section of the site.

An example of the proper citation format for a Perspective published prior to January 2008 is shown below:

H. R. de Jonge, B. Hogema, B. C. Tilly, Protein N-myristoylation: Critical role in apoptosis and salt tolerance. Sci. STKE 2000, pe1 (2000).

An example of the proper citation format for a Perspective published after the title change to Science Signaling in January 2008 is shown below:

H. R. de Jonge, B. Hogema, B. C. Tilly, Protein N-myristoylation: Critical role in apoptosis and salt tolerance. Science Signaling 1, pe1 (2008).
