Beginning in 1998, includes an additional vol. published as a section of the journal, with title: The new anatomist. Issues for 1906-2002 include the proceedings and abstracts of papers of the American Association of Anatomists (formerly the Association of American Anatomists)
The Anatomical Record is an official publication of the American Association of Anatomists whose purpose is to rapidly publish new discoveries in the morphological aspects of molecular, cellular, systems, and evolutionary biology. Emphasis will focus upon major new findings in the anatomical consequences of gene disruption, activation, or over expression upon cell, tissue, or organ architecture. The journal recognizes the importance of descriptive studies in contemporary research, particularly when framed in the context of experimental models or questions. An important priority will be those discoveries and new advances made through the use of imaging modalities that range from those that image real-time signalling processes to ones that image protein or gene expression in individual cells, tissues, or whole organisms.
