The European Journal of Histochemistry was founded in 1954 by Maffo Vialli and published till 1979 under the title of Rivista di Istochimica Normale e Patologica, from 1980 to 1990 as Basic and Applied Histochemistry and in 1991 as European Journal of Basic and Applied Histochemistry. It is now published under the auspices of the Università of Pavia and of the Ferrata Storti Foundation, Pavia, Italy. The European Journal of Histochemistry is the official organ of the Italian Society of Histochemistry and a member of the journal subcommittee of the International Federation of Societies for Histochemistry and Cytochemistry (IFSHC). The Journal publishes Original papers, Technical reports, Reviews, Brief notes, Letters to the Editor, Book reviews, Views and Comments, concerning investigations performed with the aid of biophysical, biochemical, molecular-biological, enzymatic, immunohistochemical, cytometric, and image analysis techniques. Areas of particular interest to the European Journal of Histochemistry include: - functional cell and tissue biology in animals and plants; - cell differentiation and death; - cell-cell interaction and molecular trafficking; - biology of cell development and senescence; - nerve and muscle cell biology; - cellular basis of diseases Starting from volume 50, 2006, the European Journal of Histochemistry is sub-titled as a journal of functional cytology. This is consistent with the evolution of Histochemistry over the last half century: nowadays, the histochemical approach is essentially aimed at locating molecules in the very place where they exert their biological roles, and at describing dynamically specific chemical activities in living cells. It is in everyone’s experience that basic research on cell functional organization is essential for understanding the mechanisms underlying major biological processes such as differentiation, the control of tissue homeostasis, and the regulation of normal and tumor cell growth. Even more than in the past, the European Journal of Histochemistry, as a journal of functional cytology, intends to be a forum where cell scientists may present and discuss their original results, technical improvements and theories.
