Aims and scope

Anatomical Science International (formerly titled Kaibogaku Zasshi) is the official English journal of the Japanese Association of Anatomists and publishes original research articles dealing with morphological sciences in animals, with a primary focus on humans and other mammals (although exceptions may be considered by the editor for other animals).

In addition to Original Research Articles on  molecular, cellular, histological and gross anatomical studies on humans and on normal and experimental animals, as well as functional morphological, biochemical, physiological and behavioral studies if they include morphological analysis,  the journal welcomes:

  • Case Reports on gross anatomy, highlighting anatomically important data that analyze the process of morphogenesis. Reports merely describing variations will not be accepted
  • Methods papers, describing new and useful techniques and their application in the above fields
  • Review papers, which are usually invited by the Editors
  • Miscellaneous items such as letters to the editor, essays, book reviews and commentaries
