  • Japanese Association of Anatomists

    The Japanese Association of Anatomists is an association of researchers, scholars, and professionals dedicated to the promotion and development of anatomical science.

    The society was founded in 1928, making it one of the oldest academic societies in medicine in Japan.

    The society is active through meetings, publications, and committees for education, science, and policy making. Its aim is to promote research in the anatomical sciences by encouraging communication among members and by contributing to the national and international scientific communities.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
