The aim of Cytopathology is to publish articles relating to those aspects of cytology which will increase our knowledge and understanding of the aetiology, diagnosis and management of human disease. It contains original articles and critical reviews on all aspects of clinical cytology in its broadest sense, including:

  • gynaecological and non-gynaecological cytology

  • fine needle aspiration and

  • screening strategy.

Cytopathology welcomes papers and articles on:

  • ultrastructural, histochemical and immunocytochemical studies of the cell

  • quantitative cytology and

  • DNA hybridization as applied to cytological material

Editorial policy reflects the interest of cytopathologists and cytotechnologists alike as well as the interests of clinicians using the cytology service. It also reflects the interest of biological scientists whose work involves research at the cellular level.
