About the Journal

The Journal of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry, an international cell biology journal of long standing, is a leader in the field of current imaging techniques and publishes primary research articles, timely reviews, editorials and perspectives on the structure and function of cells, tissues and organs. It is intended as a central source for research into mechanisms of development, differentiation, and disease. High priority is given to submissions where imaging techniques are complemented by new genetic, molecular and biochemical approaches.

The disciplines involved in cell biology research continue to evolve rapidly with fast changing developments in imaging advancing new research. The Journal of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry fully supports publishing these developments in primary research papers. JHC welcomes concise review articles, especially those that address key issues in methodology and summarize modern techniques. The journal continues to publish new developments in microscopy and imaging. Purely descriptive studies of gene or molecular expression are also considered, particularly where supported by experimental data to generate mechanistic insights into cell or tissue function.
