The Philippine Journal of Pathology (PJP) was envisioned as a biannual publication of the Philippine Society of Pathologists, Inc. (PSP, Inc.), to serve as an avenue for research by Filipino anatomic and clinical pathologists. It was conceived in 1986 through the efforts of Drs. Antonia Cruz-Basa and Generoso Basa who saw the need for an official journal for the society where original pathology research can be published and which shall hopefully stimulate a culture of publication for the pathology community in the Philippines.
It has been a little over a year since we presented the prospects of resurrecting the Philippine Journal of Pathology at the 64th Annual Convention of the PSP. The revival of the journal would not have been possible without the full support of the current and past PSP President, Dr. Januario Veloso and Dr. Linda Tamesis, respectively, the Board of Governors, our dedicated editorial coordinator, and the members of our Core Team with whom we have begun this journey of revival back in 2012.
It only takes a spark, to get a fire going. The first issue of this journal is a push, a catalyst, to create change. You are part of this drive towards elevating our practice and informing the greater research community of pathology research in this part of the globe.
