Path to Publish - the monthly AJP newsletter

We have reached the close of another great year at The American Journal of Pathology.  2018 began with the introduction of a new Editor in Chief, Dr. Martha B. Furie, who brought along an expansion of the Journal’s scope.  Through the year we also experienced a steadying of the impact factor (4.069), as well as a continued increase to the number of submissions received for consideration.  At the end of November the total number of submissions has already surpassed the total from 2017.  Thank you to all the authors, reviewers, and editors who participate with AJP and play a vital part in our success.
