Academic journals are periodicals in which researchers publish their findings, mostly the recent ones. Academic journals are typically peer-reviewed journals that publish theoretical discussions and articles that critically review already published work. Academic journals serve as an important forum for researchers and academicians from where they can access important information about recent developments in their field. These journals are the first choice for any in-depth examination of an issue related to science. Science as we know is scarcely imaginable without the academic journal.
Histology can be defined as the study of the microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues of plants and animals. The microscopic study of diseased tissue is known as histopathology. It is commonly performed by examining cells and tissues by fixation, processing, sectioning and staining, which is followed by examination under a light microscope or electron microscope. Fixation is done to preserve tissue from degradation, to maintain the structure of the cell and of sub-cellular components such as cell organelles by using fixatives which differs for light and electron microscopy.
