How to publish in this journal


The IRANIAN JOURNAL OF PATHOLOGY (IJP), the quarterly official journal of the Iranian society of pathology publishes original research papers, reviews, case reports, short communications and letters to editor in clinical and anatomical pathology 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.

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal.

The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
