Breast Cancer: Basic and Clinical Research delivers the highest quality peer-reviewed open access original research articles, reviews, and scholarly comment on pioneering efforts and innovative studies pertaining to all areas of breast cancer research and treatment. The journal is aimed at an international audience of clinicians and researchers in breast cancer, providing an online forum for rapid dissemination of recent research and perspectives in this area.

Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, breast cancer sub types, pathobiology, metastasis, genetics and epigenetics, mammary gland biology, breast cancer models, prevention, detection, therapy and clinical interventions, and epidemiology and population genetics.

Review articles include expert opinion/perspective reviews (including single-drug and drug class reviews), narrative reviews and therapeutic area reviews. Systematic reviews, meta-analyses, postmarketing and health economic and pharmacoeconomic reviews are also welcomed. The appropriate EQUATOR Network reporting guidelines should be followed (e.g. CONSORT for randomized, controlled trials and PRISMA for systematic reviews/meta-analyses). The journal conforms to the ICMJE requirement that clinical trials are registered in a WHO-approved public trials registry at or before the time of first patient enrolment as a condition of consideration for publication. The trial registry name and URL, and registration number must be included at the end of the abstract.

The journal adheres to an anonymized review process in which the reviewer's name is routinely withheld from the author unless the reviewer requests a preference for their identity to be revealed. Manuscripts are reviewed by at least two referees.
