Pathology - Research and Practice provides accessible coverage of the most recent developments across the entire field of pathology. The Journal publishes traditional morphological studies based on histopathology, including immunohistochemistry with clinical pathological correlations, if sound biostatistical data are provided. The submission of Case Reports is only encouraged for those that provide new information on the pathogenesis of the described disease based on additional molecular biological and genetic investigations. Timely reviews that focus on recent progress in pathology are highly encouraged.



A main focus of Pathology - Research and Practice is publication of manuscripts from different clinical disciplines applying molecular genetic and biological techniques and focusing on innovative results, which improve the understanding of causal pathogenesis of human diseases. Investigations for better understanding of cancer diseases and new insights into molecular carcinogenesis, including translational biology of particular cancer entities, are welcome. In this context, manuscripts focusing on new molecular genetic results, but also functional molecular biological data based on cell culture investigations and animal experiments are encouraged. With this strategy, the Journal seeks to contribute to improved understandings of human disease mechanisms.
