Cytoskeleton focuses on all aspects of cytoskeletal research, spanning genetic and cell biological observations, biochemical, biophysical and structural studies, mathematical modeling and theory. This includes, but is certainly not limited to, classic polymer systems of eukaryotic cells and their structural sites of attachment on membranes and organelles, as well as the bacterial cytoskeleton, the nucleoskeleton, and uncoventional polymer systems with structural/organizational roles. The journal is published in 12 issues annually, and special issues will be dedicated to especially-active or newly-emerging areas of cytoskeletal research.

Cytoskeleton serves as a venue for the rapid and fair evaluation of manuscripts, leading to the publication of high-quality articles that advance the cytoskeleton field. The journal welcomes submission of research papers, reviews, mini-reviews, commentaries, and techniques.
