Acta histochemica, a journal of structural biochemistry of cells and
tissues, publishes original research articles, short communications,
reviews, letters to the editor, meeting reports and abstracts of meetings.
The aim of the journal is to provide a forum for the cytochemical and
histochemical research community in the life sciences, including cell
biology, biotechnology, neurobiology, immunobiology, pathology,
pharmacology, botany, zoology and environmental and toxicological research.
The journal focuses on new developments in cytochemistry and histochemistry
and their applications. Manuscripts reporting on studies of living cells and
tissues are particularly welcome. Understanding the complexity of cells and
tissues, i.e. their biocomplexity and biodiversity, is a major goal of the
journal and reports on this topic are especially encouraged.
Original research articles, short communications and reviews that report on
new developments in cytochemistry and histochemistry are welcomed,
especially when molecular biology is combined with the use of advanced
microscopical techniques including image analysis and cytometry. Letters to
the editor should comment or interpret previously published articles in the
journal to trigger scientific discussions. Meeting reports are considered to
be very important publications in the journal because they are excellent
opportunities to present state-of-the-art overviews of fields in research
where the developments are fast and hard to follow. Authors of meeting
reports should consult the editors before writing a report. The editorial
policy of the editors and the editorial board is rapid publication.
Once a manuscript is received by one of the editors, an editorial decision
about acceptance, revision or rejection will be taken within a month. It is
the aim of the publishers to have a manuscript published within three months
after the manuscript has been accepted.
