This is the first issue of our new Journal, the Journal of Surgical and Molecular Pathology (JSMP).   Our Journal is an international, open access, peer-reviewed and refereed online, free of charge, scientific journal published by the Hellenic Society of Pathology, HSP (www.pathology.gr), guaranteeing high quality of accepted papers and rapid publication. Our main objective is to integrate morphology, molecular pathology (particularly the tissue-based one), clinical laboratory medicine and clinical medical specialties, especially oncology and its subspecialties. We intend to promote interdisciplinary scientific studies and thus, we encourage the submission of interdisciplinary articles. Systematic review articles are also welcome and they will be of priority in publishing.

We invite for submission of original, not previously published articles, all pathologists specializing in anatomical pathology, molecular pathology, and cytology, as well as all researchers in related (in a broad sense) fields. We encourage other scientists (such as clinical oncologists, surgical oncologists and radiation oncologists, involving anatomical pathology in their research) to publish in our Journal clinical protocols involving pathology. Articles on health policies and educational articles, as well as articles on bioethics are welcome.

Analytically, the Journal of Surgical and Molecular Pathology (JSMP)'s aim is the publication of scientific articles of basic research and laboratory-clinical investigation in the following fields: 

-     Traditional Morphology and Histochemistry, Comparative Pathology, Autopsy Pathology, Cytopathology and Clinical Cytology

-     Antibodies production for diagnosis, prediction, prognosis and targeted therapy

-     Immunohistochemistry and Immunocytochemistry

-     Molecular Pathology, Molecular Genetics, Proteomics, high-throughput technologies

-     Translational research

-     Circulating Tumor Cells and Liquid Biopsy

-     Biomarkers, predictive and/or prognostic

-     Impact of biomarkers and new technologies on targeted therapies

-     Cryogenics, especially related to biological sciences

-     Morphometry and fractals applications in pathology

-     Human Biology and related sciences

-     Biomaterials and Biotechnology, mostly applied

-     Bioinformatics

-     Bioethics

-     Pathology-related Education

-     Mechanisms of disease and novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies involving pathology

Our interests are not limited to the above fields. We consider the publications in related fields leading to the future pathology, the integrated morphomolecular science, both research and diagnostic, as well as their scientific historical and philosophical background. We aim to be a liaison between pathology and other sciences (such as clinical, surgical and radiation oncology), to unify fields and spherically face diagnostic and research challenges.

We are seeking papers for the upcoming issues and we invite you all sharing our interests to submit original articles.
