"Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica" is an international, English-language journal publishing articles in the areas of histochemistry, cytochemistry and cell & tissue biology.
"Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica" was established in 1963 under the title: ‘Folia Histochemica et Cytochemica’ by the Polish Histochemical and Cytochemical Society as a journal devoted to the rapidly developing fields of histochemistry and cytochemistry. In 1984, the profile of the journal was broadened to accommodate papers dealing with cell and tissue biology, and the title was accordingly changed to "Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica".
"Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica" is published quarterly, one volume a year, by the Polish Histochemical and Cytochemical Society.

To the Authors and Readers of Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica
To the Authors and Readers of Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica:
The impact factor (IF) of Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica has decreased from the 2014 value of 1.364 to its current value of 1.040.
Bearing in mind that the IF is a poor measure of a journal’s quality, I am nevertheless disappointed. I am not, however, discouraged, as I feel that the journal’s quality has been gradually increasing. However, to keep abreast of increasing competition in both carrying out scientific research and publishing its results in a clear and transparent way (which is the aim of FHC), I ask that papers published in FHC be referred to in other journals by their authors, and by the broader readership. To enable browsing through the papers published in FHC in the years 2015-2016 I attach two separate contents’ files which are also available at the journal’s web page:
FHC Contents Vol53 2015 FHC Contens Vol54 2016
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of our contributors—including our authors, reviewers, and editors—for their outstanding efforts on the journal’s behalf. For myself, I will continue to pursue quality in whatever form it takes in my effort to increase the scientific value of the journal’s content.
With my best wishes,
Zbigniew Kmiec, MD, PhD
