Path to Publish - the monthly AJP newsletter

It’s July!  That means new metrics and mid-year statistics.  The American Journal of Pathology remains atop the lists in both Eigenfactor (0.04334) and H-index (241), and retains our 12th place ranking among 79 pathology titles in spite of a decrease to the impact factor (4.057).  Check out Editor in Chief Kevin Roth’s editorial on metrics from earlier this year: The American Journal of Pathology, Value Beyond Simple Metrics for some perspective on these numbers and how it pertains to our Journal.

Submissions to AJP are trending up for the year so far, with 30+ more manuscripts than at the same time in 2016.  We have also almost matched the number of submissions from ASIP member authors from last year, and look forward to receiving more of your work as the year continues.  We thank our member authors for your support and interest in publishing with AJP!

Did you know…

The American Journal of Pathology will soon be implementing a change to the timeline between acceptance of an article, and when that article will appear online as an article in press.


Starting with the October issue, articles will no longer wait to post until after the typesetting and copyediting process has been completed.  Instead, they will post online as an uncorrected copy of the manuscript (including the official DOI so the paper becomes citable) 2-4 business days after they are received by the production team. Accepted manuscripts will still be evaluated in house by Scientific Editor Dr. Chhavi Chauhan prior to submission into production, but this new timeline aims to cut between 2-4 weeks off the current timeline for posting articles in press.


Authors will be given the opportunity to opt-out should they so desire, but participation will ensure that your article becomes available, and more importantly, citable, faster than the previous schedule.
