Cytology is a branch of Life Science that deals with the structure, functioning and the Chemistry of ‘Cell’, a basic unit of the living organism. Histology is the study of microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues of living organism. The Journal of Cytology & Histology enhances our understanding about human and plant diseases related to cells and tissues.

The Journal seeks high quality submissions and welcome contributions in:

Cytology & Histology

Histology is the study of microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues of living organism and is carried out by evaluating the cells or tissues that sectioned, stained and mounted under microscope


Histopathology can be defined as the microscopic examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen to study the manifestations of disease. In histopathology, the issue is taken off from the body by surgery, autopsy or biopsy then it is fixed over the glass slide as a method of stabilization and stained with dyes followed by examination under the microscope. The fixation is done to prevent tissue decay.


Cytology is a branch of Science that deals with the structure, functioning and the Chemistry of ‘Cell’, a basic unit of the living organism. It is also employed in disease diagnosis and conditions through the examination of tissue samples from the body.


Cytopathology is a branch of Science that focuses on the diagnosis of diseases at the cellular level. One of the common applications is Pap smear test, which is used as a screening tool in identifying cervical lesions.


Staining can be defined as an artificial coloration for better visualisation of a biological samples such as cells, tissues or micro-organisms to be examined under the microscope.


Immunofluorescence is a technique which is used for determining the location and distribution of an antigen or antibody in a tissue section or smear using a fluoroscent or tagged antibody or antigen.


It can be defined as the process of antigen or protein detection in the biological sample using antigen specific antibodies. Immunohistochemical staining is widely used in the diagnosis of abnormal cells such as those found in cancerous tumors.


The study of Cytology of the Nervous system is known as Neurocytology. It primarily focusses on the Nervous System tissue, Neurons (Parenchymal Cells), and the Glia (Stromal or Supporting Cells). It helps in analysing the neuroinfections, by studying the dendrites, nucleus, organelles and the supporting cells normal and abnormal neuron functioning.

Cell physiology

It is the biological study of the cell's mechanism and interaction with its environment. It deals with all the normal functions that take place in a living organism.

Cell Growth

Cell growth in laymans language refers to the cell development and division, which in other words called as reproduction where the cell increases in cytoplasmic, organelle and genetic material volume and finally divides ito two.

Cell Differentation

Cell differentiation is a continuous process where the less specialized or a primitive sell gets transformed into a more specialized one to carry complex processes of the cell.

Cell Adhesion

Cell adhesion can be defined as the binding of a cell to an extracellular matris of another cell through call adhesion molecules or adhesins, such as selectins, integrins, and cadherins. Cell adhesion interlinks the cytoplasm of the cells thus, contributes to signal transduction. 

Cell Signalling

Cell signaling can be defined as the cascade of pathways involving the timely delivery of the stimulus to the target by various transcription factors and signaling molecules. Any sort of disturbance in these pathways leads to catastrophic results to the cells leading to tumor development.


Cytotechnology can be defined as the microscopic interpretation of cells to detect cancer and other abnormalities by examining the samples collected from uterine cervix (Pap test), lung, gastrointestinal tract or body cavities.


Cytometry is technique used to measure the characteristics of cells like its size, count, morphology, cell cycle phase, DNA content and presence or absence of proteins in the cell membrane or cytoplasm.


Microscopy can be defined as a techique to visualise the minute objects that are not visible through naked eye. Light and electron microscopes are used to examine the biological specimens for celluar details


Chromogens are the substrates that are used to enhance the staining intensity in histochemical methods. Ususally the enzymes are assisted with the chromgens for better visibilty under the microscope.

Pap smear

Pap smear is a cytological technique employed in detecting the cervical cancer, where the cervical cells are scraped off by the doctor and examined under the microscope for pre-cancerous and cancerous cells.


Cytoxicity in nothing but simply the toxicity caused by several agents to the cells. Cytoxic agents are toxic the cells and causes apoptosis or necrosis by interfering into the normal growth mechanism.These assays are carried out abundantly in developing drugs targeting the tumor cells.


Cytogenetics is a branch of genetics that focuses on the study of the structure and function Techlof the genetic material especially the chromosomes. Techniques such as Fluorescent in situ Hybridization (FISH) and Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) are commonly employed cytogenetic analysis.

Journal of Cytology & Histology is a multidisciplinary, open Accessed, peer-reviewed, academic journal with an Impact Factor of 1.067 in 2013 that covers the whole spectrum of fundamental research dealing with the structure, function, chemistry and biology of Cell. Our journal aims to publish original studies and comprehensive reviews for enhancing our understanding about human and plant diseases related to cells and tissues. Specifically, we publish rapid, short communications on novel studies without asking for their completion. Meta-studies are not considered for publication in our journal. The review processing for our journal is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Cytology & Histology or outside experts; approvals from at least two independent reviewers and the editor is required for the acceptance of the manuscripts.

The Journal of Cytology and Histology
is a great opportunity to improve worldwide the need of a medical culture more based upon the inner and ultrastructural characteristics of organs and tissues in case of healthy conditions or in course of diseases. By concentrating the attentions to the histological features, the physicians could better understand the intimate role of pathogenetic mechanisms on the human tissues. The Journal of Cytology and Histology could allow the achievement of these goals. Besides, the Journal of Cytology and Histology is not focused on a pre-specified medical specialization: it embraces all the fields of medicine, its article ranging from experimental ones to clinical experiences. This covers and gathers a great panel of physicians which could interact each other. Finally, the open access characteristics allow all researchers to freely download the scientific contributions and to use them for their scientific purposes.

It is with excitement and purpose that I start as the new member of Editorial Board of the Journal of Cytology & Histology. I pursued this opportunity because first, I am committed to contributing to the culture of excellence and quality of the journal as admirably lead by Editor-in-Chief, George Perry. I recognize the importance of JCH to our scientific progress and envision clear potential for continued improvement and innovation. In conjunction with publishing the most recent advances in cytology and histology, expecially in neuroscience studies, I also have a vision of fully exploiting the unrestricted format of the online publication platform to better serve readers, improving review and format of manuscripts to enrich the journal’s value to readers.



*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = Y/X
