Academic Pathology is an open access journal sponsored by the Association of Pathology Chairs, established to give voice to the innovations in leadership and management of academic departments of Pathology. These innovations may have impact across the breadth of pathology and laboratory medicine practice. Academic Pathology addresses methods for improving patient care (clinical informatics, genomic testing and data management, lab automation, electronic health record integration, and annotate biorepositories); best practices in inter-professional clinical partnerships; innovative pedagogical approaches to medical education and educational program evaluation in pathology; models for training academic pathologists and advancing academic career development; administrative and organizational models supporting the discipline; and leadership development in academic medical centers, health systems, and other relevant venues. Intended authorship and audiences for Academic Pathology are international and reach beyond academic pathology itself, including but not limited to healthcare providers, educators, researchers, and policy-makers. Academic Pathology will publish original articles, reviews and commentaries. Contributions should reflect the best practices of Pathology as a dynamic 21st century discipline. All articles will be rigorously peer reviewed for relevance and quality.

APC membership status will be determined by the institution of the corresponding author of the article. All faculty, trainees and staff of departments of pathology and/or laboratory medicine, who are members in good standing of APC, are eligible to receive the benefit of discounted article processing fees.
(Examples of other journals’ APCs: Academic Medicine - $3,300, Laboratory Investigation - $3,200, Modern Pathology - $3,200, Journal of Molecular Diagnostics - $3,000 (plus applicable author publication charges))
Requests from authors for APC waivers and discounts will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and may be granted in cases of financial need. All requests for fee waivers must be made and approved, in writing, in advance of manuscript submission. Requests made during the review process or after acceptance will not be considered. To request a waiver, please contact email@example.com.
