Application of stem cells in human medicine – from basic science research to clinical trials
Medicine in the twenty-first century is closely associated with stem cell research, based on advanced in vitro analyzes, the use of model animals, and their application in clinical trials. Experimental research requires understanding the physiological and morphological properties of stem cells and analyzing their ability to divide and differentiate into other cell types. The best-known stem cells are those derived from bone marrow and umbilical cord blood. However, in recent years, stem cells have been discovered in, for example, adipose tissue and Wharton jelly. Stem cells isolated from these tissues, once properly differentiated, are increasingly used for the treatment of bone and neurodegenerative diseases. In recent years, the number of therapies using stem cells has increased significantly. The ability of stem cells to differentiate makes them an increasingly common therapeutic tool in regenerative and reconstructive medicine.

New Scopus CiteScore
We proudly inform that our Scopus CiteScore has risen from 2.7 for the year 2020 to 3.0 for the year 2021. This positive change is a results of our constant striving for excellence in scientific publishing – but also of the activity of authors who cite papers published in Advances in Clinical in Experimental Medicine. Thank you so much – this is our joint success!
Some time ago, we have introduced a new category of papers published in Advances in Clinical and Experimental Medicine – Research letters. This new category allows for publishing even brief, but scientifically important studies which do not qualify for a full-fledged Original paper.
The Research letter category is modeled after the type of articles of the same name published in JAMA. They are peer reviewed and subject to stringent editorial review as well. They are also indexed in all databases, including PubMed and Scopus, and the number of points assigned for such publication is identical as for original papers. But a research letter contains a maximum of 1500 words, as opposed to 3500 words in an original article, and at most 2 tables or figures. Research letters are priority papers in our journal and the waiting time for publication is shorter.
There may be better labels for a research letter: A concise communication. A precise publication. A succinct study. But for now we will keep with tradition for our small but mighty research letters.
Our support for Ukraine
The 19th-century Ukrainian Romantic poet, Taras Shevchenko (1814–1861), wrote this poem in 1845:
Як умру, то поховайте
Мене на могилі
Серед степу широкого
На Вкраїні милій,
Щоб лани широкополі,
І Дніпро, і кручі
Було видно, було чути,
Як реве ревучий…
When I die, let me rest
Buried in a grave
On the wide steppe
In my dear Ukraine,
Where the broad-rimmed fields
And the Dnipro, and cliffs
Are visible, so I can hear
How the roaring roars.
Shevchenko’s “Testament” remains an anthem for Ukrainian national sentiment. It’s a poem of longing, written by a man who is separated from his native rivers, cliffs, and steppe. It shows off the alliterative power of the Ukrainian language.
After a Russian-language Odessa poet, Boris Khersonsky, began to write poems in Ukrainian in solidarity with the 2013–2014 Maidan “Revolution of Dignity,” he wrote a version of “Testament.”
Як умру, то не ховайте
мене на могилi.
Хай несуть мене до неба
Хай розвiє сiрий попiл
бо йому, щоб полетiти,
не потрiбнi крила.
Бо нема землi на свiтi,
щоб назвав своею.
When I die, don’t let me rest
Buried in a grave
Let the waves of fire carry
Me up to the sky.
Let the windy powers dispel
The gray ash, let it scatter
For, no wings are necessary
For this ash to fly.
For no land in all the world
Can be called my own.
New materials for authors
The research paper has been published – but how to make sure that as many other scholars as possible will read and – preferably – cite it? Our editorial team prepared a set of valuable guidelines, concisely describing what an author can do to boost the impact of an article.
We have prepared a useful tool for the authors of our journal, including guidelines needed while working on a new article. We hope that provided instruction will address any of your concerns. Before uploading a new manuscript, read Stylebook in a Nutshell and get acquainted with all necessary information.
Our statistical editors prepared a set of concise and precise statistical guidelines – we are aware that proper conduct of statistical analyses and presentation of their results can be complex.
Media patronage offer
Our media patronage offer is addressed to organizers of scientific events of any type: conferences, congresses, anniversaries of scientific or professional societies, workshops, meetings etc. Our journal can promote the event and publish papers as its outcome. See our detailed offer in the flyer or contact us for further details.
We proudly announce that Polish Ministry of Education and Science has increased the number of points assigned to “Advances in Clinical and Experimental Medicine” from 40 to 70 points. This change reflects our constant striving for quality in scientific publishing. The editorial team wants to thank especially the section editors, whose competences and research experience as well as efficient work and commitment have chiefly contributed to this achievement.
Changes in publication rules
Please note that since October 1, 2021 after the article is published as ahead of print, it cannot be changed (which encompasses also affiliations and authors’ order). Such stipulation stems from requirements set by scientific databases in which the papers published in Advances in Clinical and Experimental Medicine are stored.
If the article is already accessible online as registered preprint on any website or in any database, and has been already assigned with a DOI, such information, together with an URL of the registered preprint, has to appear in the cover letter.
Index Copernicus (ICV) 2020
Our Index Copernicus value has risen from 152.95 points for 2019 to 166.39 for 2020. It’s a clear proof that our hard work and the efforts of the previous editorial board have measurable results – and that our contributions to the world of scientific journals are meaningful.
