JLB is a peer-reviewed, academic journal published by Wiley on behalf of the Society for Leukocyte Biology for its members and the community of immunobiologists.
The journal publishes papers devoted to the exploration of the cellular and molecular biology of granulocytes, mononuclear phagocytes, lymphocytes, NK cells, and other cells involved in host physiology and defense/resistance against disease. Since all cells in the body can directly or indirectly contribute to the maintenance of the integrity of the organism and restoration of homeostasis through repair, JLB also considers articles involving epithelial, endothelial, fibroblastic, neural, and other somatic cell types participating in host defense. Studies covering pathophysiology, cell development, differentiation and trafficking; fundamental, translational and clinical immunology, inflammation, extracellular mediators and effector molecules; receptors, signal transduction and genes are considered relevant. Research articles and reviews that provide a novel understanding in any of these fields are given priority as well as technical advances related to leukocyte research methods.
