As part of the ongoing CytoJournal Monograph and Atlas Series (CMAS) project[1] of Cytopathology Foundation[2] to publish cytopathology books in open access, we announce that all individual chapters of the second edition of the book on “Cytopathologic Diagnosis of Serous Fluids”[3] are already published as individual review articles.[1] As one of the benefits of the open access charter, the review articles on the topic are available around the globe as scientific cytopathology literature in PubMed searchable database with free access. CMAS 2 chapters as review articles can be accessed as individual review articles under “CytoJournal Monograph Related Review Series” at https://cytojournal.com/category/cytojournal-monograph-related-review-series/).[4]

These chapters are under compilation into CMAS book titled “Cytopathologic Diagnosis of Serous Fluids” as multi-author second edition [Figure 1]. The final book will be available soon in various formats including print[5] and e-version (eCytoJournal).[6]
