This blog post will focus on the official journal of the ASIP - The American Journal of Pathology (AJP). The current Editor-in-Chief of the AJP is Dr. Kevin Roth, who traced the history of the AJP in his 2012 ASIP Centennial Editorial (K.A. Roth, 2012, Am. J. Pathol. 180:1337-1339; access the full text.The AJP was preceded by the Journal of the Boston Society of Medical Sciences (1896-1900) and The Journal of Medical Research(1901-1924). The journal became The American Journal of Pathology in 1925. For the interested reader, the complete archives of these journals dating to 1896 can be accessed from the AJP website. The AJP is the most-highly cited source for original research on cellular and molecular biology and mechanisms of disease. Published papers advance basic and translational knowledge of the pathogenesis, classification, diagnosis, and mechanisms of disease, without preference for a specific analytic method, but with high priority given to studies on human disease and relevant experimental models using cellular, molecular, animal, biological, chemical, and immunological approaches in conjunction with morphology. Given the wide scope of the AJP, papers are published that cover the major areas of interest to ASIP members, including cancer, inflammation, vascular biology, epithelial and mesenchymal biology, genetic disease, renal pathology, immunopathology, stem cells, neuropathology, animal models of disease, and numerous others.
