Journal Acta Cytologica

Please do not wait longer than three months to inform the IAC office if your printed journal has not arrived.
The first 2024 journal is delayed due to technical reasons and the publisher hopes to send it out by the first week in April.


The first scientific journal to exclusively cover cytologic topics, ACTA CYTOLOGICA was founded in 1957 by George L. Wied, acting as the first Editor of Acta. He served in this capacity for over forty years until Marluce Bibbo joined as Co-Editor and successor. Since then ACTA CYTOLOGICA has been the official journal of the International Academy of Cytology. In 2013 Dr. Kari J. Syrjänen, Finland took over as Editor and has successfully maintained the high standard of content and presentation. Since January 2011 this high-standard, peer-reviewed journal has been published 6 times a year by the Karger Publishing House in Basel, Switzerland. We are delighted to announce the latest journal impact factor (JIF) of Acta Cytologica was released in June 2022. The Impact Factor of 2021 is 3.000 CiteScore: 3.7
