Happy Birthday Journal of Pathology Informatics

| March 13, 2014

Honored to be a part of the editorial board of the Journal of Pathology Informatics (JPI) and anyone reading this with an interest in pathology informatics owes Anil and Liron a debt of gratitude for starting a journal on the subject and sustaining the effort now 4 years later.  Understanding how difficult it can be to think critically about a project or topic, performing the study, writing the manuscript and going through the peer review process can be a challenge unto itself but actually finding reviewers, editors, publishers and sponsors to support the actual publication seems like a full-time job all itself. 

Here’s to more high quality work at a low cost to authors and readers and 4 more years (and more) of growth of JPI!

Anil Parwani and Liron Pantanowitz, founding editors of the Journal of Pathology Informatics (JPI), on JPI’s 4th anniversary!  In 2009, Dr. Pantanowitz approached API with the idea to launch JPI, which the API Council readily approved.  Drs.
