European Journal of Pathology

Publishing model:


The Official Journal of the European Society of Pathology.

Mission statement: To advance the scientific basis of human pathology, and thereby contribute to patient care, through the publication of high-quality research (including molecular and translational studies).

  • We consider original studies reinforcing the evidence base of modern diagnostic pathology, using immunocytochemical, molecular and ultrastructural techniques.
  • We welcome critical evaluations of diagnostic criteria, broadsheets and guidelines with a solid evidence base, and applicable experimental work.
  • Biomarker studies should be of adequate sample size, relevant marker choice, and abide by strict rules (e.g. REMARK).
  • Case reports are considered only when they provide substantial new information with an impact on understanding disease/diagnostic practice.
  • Abbas Agaimy
