The European Journal of Histochemistry has been an influential cytology journal for over 60 years, publishing research articles on functional cytology and histology in animals and plants. The European Journal of Histochemistry offers original research articles investigating on structural and molecular components performed by histochemical and immunohistochemical methods, at light and electron microscopy, cytometry and imaging techniques.

Areas of particular interest include cell differentiation, senescence and death, and cell-cell interactions in normal and pathological tissues; attention is also given to articles on newly developed or originally applied histochemical and microscopical techniques.

Since its foundation in 1954, the European Journal of Histochemistry is the official organ of the Italian Society of Histochemistry and, since 2022, of the Italian Group for the Study of Neuromorphology (G.I.S.N.).


Celebrating 70 Years of Excellence


In 1954, Prof. Maffo Vialli, a pioneer of histochemical studies in Italy, founded in Pavia the European Journal of Histochemistry, under the title "Rivista di Istochimica Normale e Patologica".

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of our journal, a Special article collection has been opened on the application of the histochemical approach for studying cell biology in animals and plants, and in diseased conditions, to show the wide and multifaceted areas of interest of our journal.
