In the rapidly expanding information and connectivity age, the exponential rise of knowledge is also causing increasing fragmentation and sub-specialization of disciplines in science and medicine. Increasingly a multidisciplinary effort yields solutions and insights into natural processes beyond that which and isolated branch of science can achieve. This is in line with the concept of consilience, or the unity of all knowledge. The Journal of Anatomy and Physiology provides such a platform, whereby many disciplines can find common ground in the most fundamental componentsof the human body.

The journal Anatomy & Physiology: Current Research is still in a toddler age. However since the opening at the very end of the year 2011, it had become a mature open access peer-reviewed journal. For less than 3 years, 8 issues with more than 60 research and editorial manuscripts have been published. These manuscripts covered the whole variety of topics on the anatomy of various organs and tissues, including heart and blood vessels, nervous system, placenta, and retina, as well as on physiology of cancer, macular degeneration, sleep apnea, and red blood cell abnormalities. The journal has also provided the view on open access strategy that provides the opportunity for quick publications of a high quality. I would like to wish the journal further success and hope that it will meet the interest of numerous readers.
