The Anatomical Record: Advances in Integrative Anatomy and Evolutionary Biology, an official publication of the American Association of Anatomists, publishes new discoveries in the morphological aspects of molecular, cellular, systems, and evolutionary biology. The journal focuses on major new findings in the anatomical consequences of gene disruption, activation, or over expression upon cell, tissue, or organ architecture and also recognizes the importance of descriptive studies in contemporary research, particularly when framed in the context of experimental models or questions. Another important priority will be those discoveries and new advances made through the use of imaging modalities ranging from those that image real-time signaling processes to ones that image protein or gene expression in individual cells, tissues, or whole organisms. Papers are accepted dealing with functional morphology of any vertebrate organ system including those with a developmental, comparative, or evolutionary theme. The area of coverage is directed primarily to the organ or system level, where descriptive studies of normal and abnormal development become an important consideration in characterizing phenotypes. In addition, timely reviews of important topics related to Anatomy and its subdisciplines are regularly included. The criteria of acceptance of all papers are the quality of the research, its originality and significance to our readership.
The official English journal of the Japanese Association of Anatomists, Anatomical Science International (formerly titled Kaibogaku Zasshi) publishes original research articles dealing with morphological sciences.
Coverage in the journal includes molecular, cellular, histological and gross anatomical studies on humans and on normal and experimental animals, as well as functional morphological, biochemical, physiological and behavioral studies if they include morphological analysis.
Anatomy, an international journal of experimental and clinical anatomy, is a peer-reviewed journal published three times a year with an objective to publish manuscripts with high scientific quality from all areas of anatomy. The journal offers a forum for anatomical investigations involving gross, histologic, developmental, neurological, radiological and clinical anatomy, and anatomy teaching methods and techniques. The journal is open to original papers covering a link between gross anatomy and areas related with clinical anatomy such as experimental and functional anatomy, neuroanatomy, comparative anatomy, modern imaging techniques, molecular biology, cell biology, embryology, morphological studies of veterinary discipline, and teaching anatomy.
Anatomy & Cell Biology is an international forum for multi-perspective discussion of all fields of anatomy, particularly the field of cell biology based on anatomy. The journal publishes papers from basic to applied fields, and covers studies of all levels of biological organizations in human and animal models. Studies with an integrative perspective of anatomical structures at several levels of organization from molecules to living organisms are particularly welcome. ACB's broad audience ranges from molecular biologists to clinicians.
Annals of Anatomy publish peer reviewed original articles as well as brief review articles. The journal is open to original papers covering a link between anatomy and areas such as
•developmental biology, neurobiology
•embryology as well as
•modern imaging techniques
•evolution, and especially also
Cells Tissues Organs aims at bridging the gap between cell biology and developmental biology and the emerging fields of regenerative medicine (stem cell biology, tissue engineering, artificial organs, in vitro systems and transplantation biology). CTO offers a rapid and fair peer-review and exquisite reproduction quality. Special topic issues, entire issues of the journal devoted to a single research topic within the range of interests of the journal, are published at irregular intervals.
CLINICAL ANATOMY is the Official Journal of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists and the British Association of Clinical Anatomists.
The goal of CLINICAL ANATOMY is to provide a medium for the exchange of current information between anatomists and clinicians. This journal embraces anatomy in all its aspects as applied to medical practice. Furthermore, the journal assists physicians and other health care providers in keeping abreast of new methodologies for patient management and informs educators of new developments in clinical anatomy and teaching techniques.
Journal of Anatomy is an international peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Anatomical Society. The journal publishes original papers, invited review articles and book reviews. Its main focus is to understand anatomy through an analysis of structure, function, development and evolution. Priority will be given to studies of that clearly articulate their relevance to the anatomical community. Focal areas include: experimental studies, contributions based on molecular and cell biology and on the application of modern imaging techniques and papers with novel methods or synthetic perspective on an anatomical system.
The application of anatomical research to clinical problems requires selectivity in choosing from numerous publications. Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, the first international journal of Clinical anatomy operates in the spirit that meaningful progress remains to be made.
Each issue includes: Original papers, review articles, articles on the anatomical bases of medical, surgical and radiological techniques, articles of normal radiologic anatomy, brief reviews of anatomical publications of clinical interest.
Particular attention is given to high quality illustrations, which are indispensable for a better understanding of anatomical problems.
Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy is a journal written by anatomists for clinicians with a special interest in anatomy.
