The American Journal of Pathology (AJP)

The American Journal of Pathology (AJP) is the leading global forum for reporting quality original research on cellular and molecular mechanisms of disease. Impact Factor: 4.591*

AJP is the official journal of the American Society for Investigative Pathology, and publishes high-quality, original papers on the cellular and molecular biology of disease. The editors accept manuscripts that advance basic and translational knowledge of the pathogenesis, classification, diagnosis, and mechanisms of disease, without preference for a specific analytic method. High priority is given to studies on human disease and relevant experimental models using cellular, molecular, animal, biological, chemical, and immunological approaches in conjunction with morphology.

*Thomson Rueters Citation Report 2014

To celebrate the founding of ASIP's parent society, the American Society for Experimental Pathology (ASEP), and 100 years of FASEB affiliation, ASIP sponsored The American Journal of Pathology (AJP) Centennial Project to highlight significant scientific discoveries published in AJP (the official journal of ASIP) and its predecessor journals, The Journal of Medical Research and the Journal of the Boston Society of Medical Sciences. Beginning in April 2012 and continuing through April 2013, AJP published articles in a special AJP Centennial section of each issue, highlighting important articles, scientific topic areas, and advances in experimental pathology that have occurred during the past 100+ years. We hope that these articles illustrate the breadth of ASIP's scientific impact and provide new insights on old issues. . A compendium of AJP Centennial Project articles was distributed at the ASIP 2013 Annual Meeting and Centennial Celebration at Experimental Biology 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts.
