Pathology Journals: The Study of Information
Jaleh Mansouri, M.D.

Journal publications are one of the main sources of information regarding new developments in pathology. The number of pathology journals available both reflects the growth of knowledge in this field and represents a challenge for pathologists seeking to learn or to publish articles. Selection criteria of the appropriate journal for publication include area of expertise (e.g., neuropathology, molecular diagnostics) journal reputation (both nationally and internationally), type of study design or format (e.g., case series, epidemiological study), and the primary language of publication (most often English). Authors must also consider the overall quality of their work and the probability of the article being accepted for publication in any particular journal. Pathologists wishing to increase their knowledge often use the same criteria for choosing which journals to read.

While most pathologists use practical means for selecting pathology journals, bibliometric statistical methods are available for qualitative and quantitative analysis of journals in pathology and many other scientific disciplines. One metric often used in ranking journals is the impact factor. The journal's impact factor is the number of citations the average article receives in any given year. The role of the impact factor in journal importance and selection is still a matter of debate.
