Aims and Scope

Leading international journal of diagnostic, research and surgical pathology

Histopathology is an international journal intended to be of practical value to surgical and diagnostic histopathologists, and to investigators of human disease who employ histopathological methods. Our primary purpose is to publish advances in pathology, in particular those applicable to clinical practice and contributing to the better understanding of human disease.

A subscription to Histopathology will give you access to:

  • High quality articles reporting the results of original histopathological research and clinicopathological studies

  • Translational studies with direct relevance to the interpretation of tissue and cellular alterations in human disease

  • Reports of relevant technical innovations

  • Reviews, Commentaries and Expert Opinion

  • Lesson of the Month - a case report illustrating an unusual pitfall or diagnostic triumph


Both the number of subscribers and the amount of papers accepted for publication have increased rapidly since Histopathology's launch in 1977. It publishes histopathological material having clinical application in the study of human disease and includes electron microscopic histochemical, immunological and supportive experimental studies where necessary. The readership consists of diagnostic histopathologists and researchers in the clinicopathological field.
