About Anatomia


Anatomia (ISSN 2813-0545) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access scientific journal, which welcomes original articles, reviews, communications and opinions that cover every topic related to the field of anatomy, including novel methods in static, functional and clinical anatomy. The journal covers multidisciplinary approaches beyond morphological techniques, including the biochemistry of the cell and molecular and cellular biology, with outcomes strongly related to anatomical findings. The journal strongly encourages publications within novel research fields, such as how gene expression modifies or maintains anatomical structures. In vitro, in vivo and ex vivo studies on humans and animal cells, tissues and organs are welcome. Anatomical studies based on lesions, regeneration and transplants, modern imaging techniques and comparative and veterinary anatomy are fully considered. At the same time, the journal looks back to the glorious past of this discipline and focuses its attention on the history of anatomy to rediscover a long tradition of morphological investigations. Research proposals and innovative ideas are welcome, and there are no restrictions regarding paper length.
