Iranian Journal of Pathology (Iran J Pathol)

Quarterly Journal of Anatomical and Clinical Pathology

The IRANIAN JOURNAL OF PATHOLOGY (IJP),  is an Open Access journal and publishes original research papers, reviews, case reports, short communications, and letters to the editor with priority for high-quality original papers on mechanisms of disease and clinical trials. We accept manuscripts that report important findings on disease pathogenesis and basic biological mechanisms that relate to disease without preferences for a  specific method of analysis. High priority is given to studies on human diseases and relevant experimental models that use cellular, molecular, biochemical & immunological approaches in conjunction with morphology, and to manuscripts that report new diagnostic methods or analytical systems and their application in studies of disease pathogenesis and diagnosis.
