Diagnosticpathology.eu – 2015 – Experiences – 2016 – Perspectives
The peer reviewed open access journal diagnosticpathology.eu was implemented in March, 2015. It is a tailored, open source and financially completely independent scientific medical journal, and part of a medical communication network. The communication network includes different servers such as the Virtual International Pathology Institute (VIPI, diagnomx.eu/vipi), an automated image measuring system (EAMUS), an anatomy training course, a collection of sixty rare and common lung diseases, and a mice anatomy atlas. A collection of all hazard oriented diseases and and additional of more than 120 rare cases including virtual slides and the original publications are in preparation.
The journal offers the opportunity to publish “besides the microscope” and to submit data for “interactive publication”. Both tools are unique, and cannot be found elsewhere. The preparation of virtual slides (submission of glass slides) is mandatory for publication of suitable articles.
The journal’s name diagnostic pathology seems to be attractive for some publishing companies that try to copy some issues of the real journal on diagnostic pathology.
