With great pleasure, I present this second editorial for the second volume of the Journal of Histology and Histopathology. Special thanks go to Senior Editor Dr. Gjumrakch Aliev and our current editorial team (Sherif M Karam, Xueyong Zhu, Khin Thway, Han-Seung yoon, Paul Evans, George Perry, Khush Mittal, Paola Castrogiovanni, Lingyan Wang, Karin Pichler, Stefano Fratoni and Niki J. Agnantis) and the publishing group (Herbert Publications) that, day after day, thanks to their valuable contribution, make possible the growth of this journal. I can say with great satisfaction that the number of submissions continues to increase; this will allow us to achieve some important goals that will contribute to the growth of our journal. For this reason I invite our editorial team to continue to be more scrupulous in their review process to maintain the high standards and the roles of the journal and to assure rapid publication. I sincerely thank them in advance for their precious time. Another important goal is for the journal to be indexed by other important bibliographic database, such as PubMed/Medline, Scopus, EMBASE, ISI Web of Science, Index Copernicus and so on. The purpose of this editorial is to outline a brief overview to explain my view on histochemistry.
