Journal of Laboratory Physicians (JLP) is the official journal of The Indian Association of Laboratory Physicians (IALP), a professional, literary, non-commercial, organization founded in 1990. It aims to promote the laboratory sciences in all hemispheres. With the tremendous advancements in clinical care and developments in science, diagnostic branches like pathology, microbiology, immunology, biochemistry and radiology have come into forefront in patient management. Globally, there has been an increase in patients on life support systems, immunocompromised patients, preterm and geriatric patients, adding a new dimension to diagnostic medicine. Having this aim, the association started JLP in 2009, as a bi-annual journal. It became a quarterly publication in 2017.
