Scope of the Journal of Histotechnology

The Journal of Histotechnology aims to advance the understanding of complex biological systems and improve patient care by applying histotechniques to diagnose, prevent and treat diseases.

Journal of Histotechnology is concerned with educating practitioners and researchers from diverse disciplines about the methods used to prepare tissues and cell types, from all species, for microscopic examination. This is especially relevant to Histotechnicians. 

Journal of Histotechnology welcomes research addressing new, improved, or traditional techniques for tissue and cell preparation. This includes review articles, original articles, technical notes, case studies, advances in technology, and letters to editors.

Topics may include, but are not limited to, discussion of clinical, veterinary, and research histopathology.

The Journal also provides members of the National Society for Histotechnology with content for earning continuing education units (CEUs).

Submission Instructions for Authors

Articles dealing with quality control, tricks of the trade, and educational or administrative techniques directly related to these disciplines are also published.

If you are interested in submitting an article, visit the submission information for authors tab. If you have any questions, please contact JOH Editor in Chief, Gayle Callis at

Writing the Partnership Program*

The Journal of Histotechnology Writing Partnership Program (WPP) was established to assist NSH members in the process of writing a manuscript for the Journal. Often, individuals writing their first manuscript on histotechnology relating new methods, modifications, or technical hints need guidance through the publishing process. Writing Partners will help these individuals with manuscript composition using the JOH “information for authors” guidelines.

Writing Partners are skilled in scientific writing and have previously published in JOH. Writing Partners value diplomacy, confidentiality, privacy, patience, and constructive criticism, while providing examples and encouraging the author to write in his or her unique style. The WPP editorial processes may all be accomplished via e-mail communication.

If you wish to work with a Writing Partner to complete your manuscript please contact Gayle Callis, Editor of the Journal of Histotechnology at or 406-570-5978.
