With sincere satisfaction and pride, I present this first editorial of the Journal of Histology and Histopathology edited by myself. I know this is a very challenging task, assuming the editorial coordination of this journal, targeted to enhance the work of so many esteemed international experts as well as dear colleagues, who work on morphological research. A special thanks goes to our current editorial team (Sherif M Karam, Xueyong Zhu, Gjumrakch Aliev, Khin Thway, Han-Seung yoon, Paul Evans, George Perry and Khush Mittal) and the publishing group (Herbert Publications) that, day after day, thanks to their valuable contribution, make possible the growth of this journal. Reviewing a manuscript is time-consuming and unpaid, and often reviewers are bombarded with requests to review simultaneously from several journals. I hope to increase the number of editors of the editorial board members (with different geographical origin), to assure a rapid publication. My aim and that of all the other editors is that this journal will constitute a valuable tool, of both learning and research, to understand how modern histology and histopathology can be a fundamental bridge between molecular and anatomical- physiological disciplines and how the structural organization of cells in tissues is inextricably linked to the functions that the pathological and normal tissues must perform. These concepts must constitute a significant part of imprinting training, necessary to help researchers to work in a more guided way, increasingly interested in a cellular approach to diseases and their related treatments. Finally, conscious of the fact that this journal can be considered a “system” subjected to the laws of evolution, we welcome criticism and suggestions for its improvement in the future. The purpose of this editorial was to explain my view on histology and histopathology of today, providing a brief overview from the past to the future.

Abstract

With sincere satisfaction and pride, I present this first editorial of the Journal of Histology and Histopathology edited by myself. I know this is a very challenging task, assuming the editorial coordination of this journal, targeted to enhance the work of so many esteemed international experts as well as dear colleagues, who work on morphological research. A special thanks goes to our current editorial team (Sherif M Karam, Xueyong Zhu, Gjumrakch Aliev, Khin Thway, Han-Seung yoon, Paul Evans, George Perry and Khush Mittal) and the publishing group (Herbert Publications) that, day after day, thanks to their valuable contribution, make possible the growth of this journal. Reviewing a manuscript is time-consuming and unpaid, and often reviewers are bombarded with requests to review simultaneously from several journals. I hope to increase the number of editors of the editorial board members (with different geographical origin), to assure a rapid publication. My aim and that of all the other editors is that this journal will constitute a valuable tool, of both learning and research, to understand how modern histology and histopathology can be a fundamental bridge between molecular and anatomical- physiological disciplines and how the structural organization of cells in tissues is inextricably linked to the functions that the pathological and normal tissues must perform. These concepts must constitute a significant part of imprinting training, necessary to help researchers to work in a more guided way, increasingly interested in a cellular approach to diseases and their related treatments. Finally, conscious of the fact that this journal can be considered a “system” subjected to the laws of evolution, we welcome criticism and suggestions for its improvement in the future. The purpose of this editorial was to explain my view on histology and histopathology of today, providing a brief overview from the past to the future.
