The American Journal of Pathology (AJP) is the leading global forum for reporting quality original research on cellular and molecular mechanisms of disease.
AJP is the official journal of the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) and published by Elsevier, Inc., seeks high-quality original research reports, reviews, and commentaries related to the molecular and cellular basis of disease. The editors will consider basic, translational, and clinical investigations that directly address mechanisms of pathogenesis or provide a foundation for future mechanistic inquiries. Examples of such foundational investigations include data mining, identification of biomarkers, molecular pathology, and discovery research. Foundational studies that incorporate deep learning and artificial intelligence are also welcome. High priority is given to studies of human disease and relevant experimental models using molecular, cellular, and organismal approaches. Case reports typically do not meet the criteria for inclusion.
